I have a heart full of gratitude!

I have a heart full of gratitude!

It is Thanksgiving in the US, and many Americans will be putting their thoughts of thankfulness into words over a warm festive dinner. This week we have spent about 18+ hours in airports and on planes, flying from Spain to Bangkok. It is our first time in Asia…and saying we’re excited is a bit of an understatement!
