Tomorrow is the big day! Thanksgiving is finally only one day away!! Can you taste the turkey yet? I can! And the pumpkin pie....as I baked one today. It looks delicious by the way....I'm trying very hard to resist taking a piece.
Ok, ok, enough about the food. Because as much as it's a huge part of the Thanksgiving day festivities, especially for us as there's no big family gathering to look forward to, the most important thing about Thanksgiving is giving thanks.
Today I'm sharing with you all five really important things I'm especially grateful for this year of 2014.
1// My Husband-- I thank God every day that He led me to meet Zach. I'm not sure where I would be if he wouldn't have entered my life but I know that having him beside me makes my life richer in every way. Zach is my constant cheerleader, my rock, and my best friend. He encourages me to be the best me I can be and I hope I am as supportive of him as he is of me.
2// My Pup-- Honestly, I can say that getting Duke was pretty much our best decision of the year. He has brought so much joy to our lives in the six months he's been ours. Cuddling with him on the couch in the early mornings and watching him get so excited for his dad to come home are some of the highlights of my day-- I can't imagine our lives without our sweet ball of fur.
3// This Season of Life-- Some days it is so easy to forget how blessed my life is. I have a sweet and caring husband, a loving family, a best friend I can talk to about anything, an outlet for my creativity. Even though I catch myself looking eagerly towards the future more often than not, I am so thankful for the way our lives are going right now. I've been blessed to have Zach home for the better part of this year--he's been enjoying his work and I've been enjoying mine. All in all, 2014 has been pretty great for us.
4// Hawaii-- If you had told me when we first moved to Hawaii two...almost three... years ago, I would have said you were crazy. I do still get homesick and I often wish the island had more of the conveniences I've been used to. But I also realize now that living here and being able to grow together away from outside influences has been a blessing disguise. Plus it's 70 degrees the day before Thanksgiving! #cantbeatthat
5// The Blog-- Cliche since I'm a blogger, right? But it's so true! Every day, this community of ours amazes me with it's ability to rally around and support each other. Huge shoutout to the gals from the Peony Project here. It's really incredible this little internet world of ours! I'm so thankful for all of you, my readers, who make coming back to this little blog day after day worthwhile. Y'all are the best!!
Today please keep in your thoughts and prayers Chelsea and her husband Parker as they are going through a very tough time this holiday season.
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU'RE THANKFUL FOR THIS THANKSGIVING?
