I’m Thankful For…

Happy Thanksgiving! This is my favorite of all the holidays! You get all the excitement and anticipation as other holidays, but without the pressure of cramming in all the pre-holiday activities. It feels calmer, more peaceful, enjoyable.

I hope this day finds you with friends and family, enjoying wonderful food, and taking the time to think of all we have to be thankful!

In general, I would much rather crack a joke than be serious… so in the spirit of the holiday, here’s a run down of the not-so-obvious things I’m thankful for:


Washing Machine – I mean… if I had to hand scrub and agitate all those bibs and burp clothes that William generates… I’d die.

Mini-Van – the fact that we packed enough stuff to sustain a small army for this Thanksgiving trip and we didn’t feel claustrophobic on our car trip is a miracle and testimony to how wonderful it is to have a van.

Amazon Prime – because I plan on not setting foot in one store this season (unless it’s a local store for fun local things… because I’m hip like that)

Elizabeth’s School – they do crafts! Bless them.

Instagram Stories – it’s a lot more fun to record a chatty video than take a “pretty” IG picture.

Hiding my FB app on my phone – election season just took it out of me. It had to be done.

Harris Teeter Express Lane – it’s just a glorious thing. Order groceries online. Hit up the drive through and have someone load them into your car for you. A mother’s dream! (Although Elizabeth is always disappointed that we can’t use the shopping carts that look like a little car)

Fall Leaves – I just love that smell of Fall leaves! Why doesn’t anyone make a candle like that? It’s like the “fresh cut grass” smell.

Baby Sitters – because date night has to happen at least a few times a month, even if it’s just a quick meal out.

Emojis and Auto-correct – making text messages oh so hilarious, even if it’s an accident.


In all seriousness, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The very fact that you’re reading this means you are so kind to keep up with me. I am OH so thankful for you!
