Our thank you cards are finally here and today I’m starting on sending out the first batch. When I first started my list, I had the names of the hostels and the super nice and friendly hotels listed. My list continued to grow though, to people we’d met along the trail who begged for Katahdin photos, to my neighbors who took care of my dog, to co-workers who went out of their way to help me keep my job… It’s nice to be reminded I have so much to be thankful for as we go into the holiday season. I’m usually rather jaded this time of year, but this year I’m just happy to have made so many new friends and been treated so well by total strangers. If you’re reading this blog, thank you for all your support and friendship during my hike. It was the most incredible experience of my life and I’ll always carry it with me.
