our Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving in Colorado (yep, we were just there 2 weeks ago) with my sweet grandma. It was a small get together with my grandma, parents, and brother and sis in law, but it was a good one! Our meal was catered (haha it's true! My grandma knew she wasn't up for making the meal and didn't want us to cook after traveling) but it was delicious! I'm convinced it was even more enjoyable because we weren't slaving away in the kitchen all day long. I really don't love cooking for hours on end :)


Thanksgiving is the perfect day to reflect on all the blessing in my life. I truly do have SO much to be thankful for! Here are just a few that come to mind:
The love of my Heavenly Father. I would not be able to enjoy any of these blessings to the fullest if I did not believe in Him.

My husband. The man can drive me bonkers, but he also knows how to love me perfectly.
My family. I'm so lucky that I have a great relationship with them! (In case you're wondering, that includes my in laws. I believe that we are all just one big family now!)
Our jobs. Eric's job has been affected big time from the dump of our economy, we know what it's like to go with out. We'll never take a job for granted again!
My friends. I have the best friends!
The sunshine. It makes me a happier girl :)
The little community we live in. The winters are hard for me, but I've made so many friends here that I think I might survive this winter. Perhaps I'll even have a smile on my face through it all!
The blogging world. It's true! What an amazing place to find inspiration, meet amazing bloggers, and connect with people on so many different levels. Blogging has turned out to be my favorite hobby :)

I hope you all had a perfect Thanksgiving with your loved ones!

I have only driven through Colorado, but it was so pretty it reminded me of Seattle!

BTW its okay your meal was catered, two years in a row we went to Marie Calenders. Haha.

Sarah said...

So glad you had a great Thanksgiving! Having it catered does sound nice....it's always bothered me that it takes a day to cook all the food and then maybe an hour to eat it all.
