Happy Thanksgiving

Posted on: 11.28.2013

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm not the biggest fan of Thanksgiving food, but I do love the spirit of today. The focus on family, friends, and loved ones, along with being thankful for everything that we have, is how I want to live every day.

My husband and I woke up early this morning and braved the 45 degree weather to run a 5K around our neighborhood. Then we watched the parade and snuggled on the couch.  Later we are going to his parents armed with red wine and my slow cooker mac and cheese. This is the recipe I am using. This is the third time I am making it and it has been a real crowd pleaser every time so far.

This year has been amazing with so many highs!  I have so much to be thankful for:
  1. First and foremost, I am thankful for my husband. He is such a great man and I am beyond blessed to call him my husband for the rest of our lives. Getting married to him was the best thing I have ever done.
  2. I am also so thankful for our family and friends for all of their love and support this year. Seeing so many of them in one place at our wedding was amazing!
  3. I am thankful for the beautiful weather on our wedding day as well as our wedding vendors! They were awesome and worked so hard to make our day magical. So great!
  4. I am so proud that my cousin Lauren is making huge improvements in her recovery as well as my sister in law Jennifer for the success of her surgery.
  5. My fantastic honeymoon that was romantic and the best vacation I have ever taken.  I will be forever in love with Italy.  Take me back any time.
  6. My new job has been one of the best things ever.  I feel very fulfilled.  I am busy and making a difference at the office as well as with our clients.  My coworkers are also so great to see every day.
  7. My house and neighborhood still fill me with such pride.
  8. There are so many other things I am grateful for that seem like "little" things, but are really the big things, such as my health, my country, and my life.  I'm trying to enjoy it all the time.
Have a great day, turn off your phone, and spend time with your loved ones.  They are what matter.  I love you!


  1. Perfect list! I started to write one, too, but realized it would be never ending... a good problem to have :)
