Happy Thanksgiving, all! Food aside, this morning is my favorite part of Thanksgiving, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Who cares if I’m 25 and make sure I wake up in time to watch the whole thing, it’s the little things in life!
In true Thanksgiving fashion, this is the time of year we remember to recognize and give thanks for the things we’re thankful for in our lives. It’s definitely something I want to get better about thinking of throughout the entire year, but for today, here are 6 things I’m thankful for.
I could’ve separated this into a few different categories, but instead of separating them, I’m just going to say, “people.” My boyfriend, family, friends, Sheba (she may not be a human but she’s part of my people), and the blogging community as a whole. I’m so thankful to have the support from so many people, who mean the world to me!
I feel so lucky to have a great job in such an important field, with awesome coworkers surrounding me every day. Plus, it pays the bills and allows me to have nice things!
While nobody (myself included) is immune to being sick, I’m so thankful that I’m free of any life-threatening illness or other tough long term-health issues.
A roof over my head
It sounds so simple, but this is an important one.
Especially today (yes, my fat pants are ready), I’m thankful for food. So many good things on the menu and an abundance of it!
The ability to travel
Travel is a luxury, and that isn’t lost on me. I’m beyond grateful that I have the opportunity and ability to take trips to visit loved ones, and travel the world to see things beyond what’s outside of my window.
Another luxury, but something that most people don’t really think about, since it’s become a huge part of our daily lives. Technology. This includes (but not limited to) the Internet, iPhone, and Netflix. Where would we be today without them?!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the day with friends and family! To celebrate, I’ve partnered with a great group of awesome blogging gals to offer you a chance to win a$130 gift card to Starbucks! Enter using the Rafflecopter below.
