Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

It snowed for a lot of the day yesterday. Am I the only one who didn't really mind? I kind of love the snow, and the fact that I got to spend the day at home with my love bug just made it all the more sweet. I can't believe that another Thanksgiving is upon us. I really love Thanksgiving so much. It's a holiday that revolves around all of my favorite things; Food. Family. Cool weather. And no gifts. Don't get me wrong, I love giving gifts, but it's nice to have a holiday with no pressure to prepare anything other than some food to share.

 

Over the last month, I took some time to take note of something I was truly thankful for each day. Whether big or small, there are so many things to appreciate everyday. I hope to continue this throughout the year! I hope you'll share the things you are most thankful for as well! And most of all, I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday!

xo,
