Being Thankful

Last Thanksgiving was the first time I have ever spent a holiday away from my family. And although I was surrounded by Steven's family, I felt lonely. I have a feeling that this year will be no different, but when I reflect on the last 12 months it's easy to see that I have so much to be thankful for --like Chapstick and York Peppermint Patties, central heating and new tires on my Jeep, and having an especially handy man for a husband. 

On a more serious note, I am thankful for my family who have always been so supportive of me (even my crazier decisions like moving across the country!), my few friendships that have withstood the test of time and distance, my cute fur babies who have somehow made life seem more full, and my husband who makes me so proud I swear I could burst! 

It's a good thing to sit back and take the time to reflect on all you have. So let's do that and be grateful.

Also, I'm guest posting on Megan blog today. So if you want to read more about living with a the cutest Golden Retriever on the planet!! and some of the characteristics of that breed, go here

Happy Thanksgiving! I moved across the country from my family 7 1/2 years ago - even though I'm surrounded by my husband's family, I still miss my own, especially on holidays!

Beautiful pictures! Huck's "guilt trip" face in that last picture is so adorable...that's what our dog does when she smells bacon. And I like your wedding picture. Very natural and pretty-looking.

High five to you for being able to still be happy while being so far away from your family during the holiday. I don't think I would be as strong to do so, however sometimes it might be much easier. Happy Thanksgiving though!

Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving! It definitely starts that time of the year when you begin to think back on how much has changed in the past year.
