To Give Thanks

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Not only is the food some of my absolute favorite foods I also really enjoy spending time with family and the true meaning behind Thanksgiving.  I try and take time frequently to remind myself of all of the blessings in my life to be thankful for, but sometimes life gets hectic and it is easy to forget.  It is nice to have time set aside every year to remind us to stop and be thankful for all the wonderful things we are given.  So on this glorious holiday here are just a few of the things I am thankful for:

  • My wonderful family
  • My amazing friends- I really do think I have some of the most amazing friends a girl could ask for!
  • My health
  • My job and it being in a city that I appreciate
  • My cats and dog (I know, I know- but they really are wonderful companions and they make me happy)
  • Diet Coke (call it an addiction, but a nice diet coke really can make it all better)
  • Hulu (that little invention has saved me a ton of money in cable bills!)
  • (especially when my Pandora has run out)
  • Fall (the weather, the trees, all of it!)
  • Beautiful photography
  • A good glass of wine
  • Days off with nothing to do but lounge around
  • Sweat pants, yoga pants, and scrubs (I really would wear them everyday if I could-sorry Nick!)
  • Flowers that smell as beautiful as they look
I know some of those are cliche but I think it is important to be thankful for those things we often take for granted as well as the small unexpected things in life.  There are many many other things I am thankful for and I am going to try harder to find a few blessings everyday to stop and be thankful for!
