I am thankful for a whole lot of things.

  • I'm thankful for my husband. It was the night after Thanksgiving 10 years ago that we met and have been married for 3 of those years. We've created some amazing memories together and have started a family with our beautiful daughter. I'm thankful that he works so much so that I can stay home with our daughter.
  • I'm thankful for our daughter who gives us joy every day and who is just amazing. I never knew the amount of love I would have for her or that she gives me. Her hugs and kisses melt me every time.
  • I'm thankful for my family and their love and support through everything. My family only lives a few minutes away and it is so special being able to see them often. I love our weekly family dinners with my brother and his family. His kids are everything to me and changed my world the day they were born. I'm thankful they are such sweet older cousins to Ellie.
  • I'm thankful for my older friends who I am still able to keep in touch with no matter how far away they live (NY & Switzerland, just to name a few!) and my newer friends who I've met through play dates and they've become very good friends, which is always a bonus when you also have kids who can play together. 
  • I'm thankful for this new baby that is growing inside of me. I'm excited for Ellie to have a new sibling who she can always have by her side. I'm thankful for our growing family.
  • I'm also thankful for Ellie sleeping till 8:30 and giving me time to myself before our day gets started. I'm thankful for the home we live in and the ability to fill it with things we love. I'm thankful for the little things that can make me happy- fresh flowers, a good cup of coffee, exercising, laughter, and a million other little things. And, did I mention Ellie?! :)

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
