A Day for Thanks

Y’all. This is my first Thanksgiving that I’m not spending with my own family today. Usually Thanksgiving looks like this:

Thanksgiving 2015

While I’m waiting to figure out what this year’s Thanksgiving is going to look like, I’m going to write about 5 things for which I am thankful. 2016 hasn’t been the greatest, but there have been some silver linings. So let’s do this:

  1. This year there have been a few friends who have been there at really rough moments. I definitely couldn’t have done this year without them.
  2. I was able to do a lot of traveling this year. It’s been a blessing to be able to see so much of the U.S. this year – and meet and see so many people along the way.
  3. I’m very thankful for the incredible team that I have helping me run PHLbloggers and The Blog Connect. It’s a group of awesomely talented ladies and I’m in awe that there are other people who care so much and that I was able to find them. They’re the coolest and I’m the luckiest.
  4. I’ve got two pretty awesome parents. I’m half her: party hosting, love planning ahead, and appreciate a clean house. And half him: will talk to anybody, loves to travel, and takes photos.
  5. I’m thankful that I’ve gotten some time at home this year. Time to hang out with my friends. Time to work on my relationship. Time to host a few parties.  Time to learn how my HVAC system works.

So Happy Thanksgiving to all the U.S.-ers out there. I hope you have a great day surrounded by people you love. And to the non-U.S.-ers, I wish you the same. Because it’s always a good time to count our blessings.
