I just wanted to pop in this morning and say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you all are spending the day with family and friends. Although this is the only holiday each year that Sam, Oliver, and I spend apart, we will each be surrounded by loved ones. During the holiday season, I find it especially important to be present and appreciative of those around you, no matter what else may be going on. It's important to turn the smartphones on silent, take a hiatus on Snapchat (and whatever else App you may be glued to), and pause to truly appreciate where you are in that moment. Sometimes I believe that we're so focused on being constantly "connected" with friends and loved ones virtually, that we lose sight of what's sitting right in front of us.
Today (and every day for that matter), I am thankful for my supportive and loving family, my incredible partner in life, our 3-year old spoiled rotten puppy (aka first child), our steady health, my friends that continue to make me laugh even from halfway across the country, the bloggers around me that inspire and motivate me to reach my goals in this industry, the end of my undergraduate studies that once felt distant and unattainable, and last but, certainly not least, you (my readers!) for sharing in my new adventures, testing out my recipes on your own family members, and cheering me on every step of the way since I began this exceptionally rewarding journey.
I couldn't ask for a better support system at this point in my life. I am eternally thankful for today and this moment.
I hope you all take a second to pause and remind yourself of all of the positive that is present in your world today. And I hope that you set down your smartphone, put shopping on the back burner, pay attention to your grandma's stories, and eat caramel apple pie until you can no longer fit into your pants. Have a great day, everyone!
