Last night was a typical Eve Eve. The washing machine was going non-stop, we were cleaning and getting the house tidy, there were a couple hours spent baking in the kitchen - together, Friends Thanksgiving episodes were playing in the background (anyone else NEED to watch them just before Thanksgiving every year?!), bags were being packed - with one little pup looking confused and the fall candles were burning for one of the final times. Thankful for the wine to keep me going… It's the little things, right??
Yesterday was also one of my favorite days of the year - my mom's and my "annual Tuesday before Christmas shopping trip." Now, we work together so there are more shopping days together ahead but this was our kick off - every year since I was a freshman in college we set out on this day to get some early shopping done - the sales have gotten better and better each year! This was our NINTH time.
Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! I couldn't be more thankful for all of His blessings today and everyday - the big and the small. My marriage, family, friends and faith top the list (and of course Stella and Nash) along with working with my family members and having a flexible schedule, our dream "first" home and living so close to my family. But, also the little things/moments in life too - cuddling with my sweet family in the mornings, hosting events in our home, holidays, our travels, technology to see all of our out of town friends whenever we want, date nights and dinners out, traditions and mama/daughter shopping dates. The list could honestly go on and on and it will do just that tomorrow when Derek and I pass time in the car playing "the thankful game."
Lastly, I'm thankful for all of YOU readers! The sweet comments and emails that I get daily can really brighten a girls day! This little blog of mine has grown, become a great outlet for me and a space I treasure. Thanks for reading, I've been so excited by it's growth this past year and cannot wait to continue growing and see what the future holds!
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy - Cheers to you and a very Happy Thanksgiving! Stay blessed!
