Thanksgiving Reflection

Thanksgiving is almost here! Each November, many people take time to reflect on all the things they have in life, instead of dwelling on the things that they do not have. Today, I wanted to share some of the things I am thankful for right now!

Family and Friends

I seriously have the best family and friends! My husband works long days and still always finds at least a little time to help me make this blog happen. My daughter makes every day an adventure. She is also the inspiration behind this blog! My parents are amazing grandparents to my little one and are always willing us to help in any way they can. My friends are always willing to let me bounce ideas for the blog off of them and are always there to just listen when I need to talk!

Cooler Weather

This year, it was hot for longer than it usually is where we live. We did not see typical fall weather until late October. I don’t love really cold weather and snow, but I was ready for crisp fall weather to come.

I am thankful to have a place to call my own. We have lived in our home for about over 11 years now and although there are many things about it I can’t stand, I know that home ownership is not something everyone gets to experience.

My Readers and Followers

When I came up with the idea for this blog, I wasn’t sure anyone would actually read it. The response to my posts has been better than I could ever have imagined. At this time last year, we had around three hundred visitors a month. Currently, we reach over a thousand visitors each month. If you are reading this, I’m extremely thankful that you choose to spend some of your free time on this site!

Access to Food and Clean Water

It can be so easy to forget that not everyone has regular access to food and clean water. I am thankful that we do not struggle to fill our fridge. We try to pay it forward by donating to others who may not have that ability!

Every Sunrise and Sunset

I am thankful for both the beginning and the end of every day. The beginning is a new start and the end brings time to rest and recharge.

I’d love to hear from you! What are you thankful for right now?
