Emily and I have lots to be thankful and grateful for.

Thank You

Happy Thanksgiving From Emily, Joelle & Daraius!

We’ve got each other, supportive families, wonderful friends and a cat who thinks she is a dog!

We live in a time where it is relatively easy to travel using miles and points.  And we have opportunities which most folks outside the US do not have.

And we have the most wonderful, giving, and thoughtful blog readers i.e. YOU!

You help each other out in the comments, share deals, and point out my mistakes!

I’d have stopped writing the blog a long time ago if it wasn’t for the personal interaction with you via the comments, email, twitter, Facebook and at miles & points conferences.  Your feedback keeps us going!

It’s easy to focus on the times when things didn’t go right, but we have MUCH more to be thankful for.  So let’s spend today with our friends and families, slow down, and remember how truly blessed we all are.

Happy Thanksgiving,

And thanks again for being such terrific readers!

Daraius & Emily
