Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Bloggers! Sorry this post is so late... We have so much to be thankful for this year. Here are just a few things that I’m giving thanks for:

My ABCs and 123s, because so many people don’t know theirs.
My family, because without them I wouldn’t be the person I am now.
My amazing friends, because we’ve shared so many laughs that I would be empty without.
Good books, because rainy Sundays wouldn’t be half as inspiring.
Movies, because we all need a smile.
Photography, to capture the world’s greatness without disturbing the world’s greatness.
And, of course, God, because He has given me everything I know and love.
Brownies, those Eeep! moments, the smells of wine and rain, crisp mornings, sunny nooks, a pair of blue eyes, the internet, Blogger, all my nice things, outlet malls, that one great purchase, gifts, giving and receiving, Harry Potter, traveling, soft breezes, sandy beaches, home decorating, animals and plants, the stars above, Christmas, pine tree scent, giggle-fits, the happy bits, being at ease, serene bliss, running, my health, crying, ideas, converse, my warm snuggly puppy, and much more.

Sadly, some people don’t have much to be thankful for. We can help by simply donating, participating, giving a gift, or even giving a smile. This holiday season, let’s try to make someone’s day a little brighter. You’ll be glad you did, and that warm fuzzy feeling stays for ages. Trust me.
If this Thanksgiving has made me realize anything, it’s that we should be grateful for every moment we have, because our lives are fairly short in the larger scheme of things.

I know we all have special holiday memories (: No matter if they’re good, bad or funny, they always bring a smile to our faces. Whether it’s a tear-filled smirk, or a bright cheery grin, you decide. Today didn’t have too many casualties, except mother dearest kept calling our family friend’s father Mr. Smith (name has been changed). But it was filled with good friends, family, and delicious food! I think my mom put it best when she said,

“If [your stomach] doesn’t hurt, you didn’t eat enough.”

What are your family's favorite holiday memories?


  1. well, i wouldn't say this was the best but it was pretty funny.

    yesterday we had these candles on our table that we shaped and colored like indian corn. well one of the wick wasn't in straight so it burned a lot faster. the wax hangings all over it were really funny looking. but then it sprouted a couple extra flames and started to lean, so needless to say, it went out immediately.

  2. I went to my aunts house and she made really good potatoes. And she had an awesome German Sheperd dog. Some people were taking flash pictures and he went crazy and ran into the bathroom where he hides during a storm. There was a baby gate in the door that was confining him to one room and he ran out under that. It was probably the funnest part of the night.
