Today’s the big one. The day of Thanks. Thanksgiving. Every year I am reminded just how much there really is to be thankful for, but this year seems to hold a whole lot of special.
So today, I am thankful for family. I’m thankful that we are able to start our own little family (and hopefully grow it one day). I’m thankful for our parents and siblings, who love us unconditionally and miss us as much as we miss them. I’m thankful for ALL of the extended family I’m lucky enough to have – the sweetest grandparents, aunts and uncles who are always full of love, cousins who have become friends as well, friends who have taken us in as part of their own family.
It’s such a special thing, family. Though you don’t get to choose them, they are often the people who have gone through the most with you – and stuck around for it all. Without family, our life would be a whole lot more dull.
Please enjoy your Thanksgiving (to all my American readers – international readers, have a nice turkey sandwich for lunch!) and remember everything you are thankful for today!
PS Some awesome tips (and SUPER cute photos) for getting the perfect family pictures, just in time for those holiday cards.
