Today I am grateful for mango margaritas. 🍹

Today I am grateful for Cozumel.

I and my family have been coming here for over a decade and it’s just chill af here.

Today I am grateful for this idiot.

I forget sometimes how long he’s been with me. He’s a good bud.

We checked out Bandelier National Monument today and y’all… hidden treasure.

Next time you’re in New Mexico, go to White Rock, avoid all the creepy government signs outside the National Laboratory and go see this place.

Today I am ALSO grateful for water.

Normally I either drink it, or sail on it; today I just listened to it.

Today I am grateful for vacation. Seriously. Take more. Your time is finite.

Go places. See things. More importantly, stop working. It’s lame and doesn’t add to your spirit.

Today I am grateful for Meow Wolf. This place is outstanding.

Today I am grateful for HouseSpouses™.

I don’t have one. Nor am I one. But running a house/life is hard and I appreciate those that do it.

If I could borrow someone else’s HouseSpouse for a few days a week I would do that immediately.

Warning: Political trigger warning

Fuck. The. Senate. 🖕🏼 Fuck the DNC. 🖕🏼 This is getting ludicrous.

Today I am grateful for dumpies 🥟. (That’s dumplings for the uninitiated)

Today I am grateful for friends that are willing to be vulnerable and honest and willing to form a real connection. Adult friendships are hard. Adult life is hard. We can all stop pretending we’ve got it figured out, now. We don’t. It’s ok. 💜

Today I am ALSO grateful for my wife’s exceptional photography skills.

She literally never takes a bad photo of me and that’s saying something.

Today I am grateful for pedicures.

Today I am grateful for the Mandalorian. Ok lemme quit lying. Baby Yoda and Beskar Steel speak to me on a spiritual level.

Today I am grateful for this video. I laughed wayyyyyy too hard.

Today I am grateful for my parents for teaching me how to cook. I always took it for granted but there’s a shocking number of people that don’t even know the basics.

Today I am grateful for trash pandas.

Today I am grateful for baseball hats. It’s the perfect answer to “oh shit I woke up late again.”

Today I am grateful for bad jokes. It’s all I tell.

Today I am grateful for allergy medication. Austin isn’t survivable without it.

Today I am grateful for the water and a ship to sail upon her.

Today I am grateful for The Expanse season 4!!!! 🚀🛸

Today I am grateful for a patient and calming friend that quite literally, daily talks me off the ledge of my hate spirals of annoyances.
