Thanksgiving is upon us and I couldn't be more excited! This time of year is my absolute favorite! More time with friends, family, food, and fun. My four favorite things!
To be honest, these past few weeks have been tough for me. Work stress + feeling exhausted all the time have not been the best combo. Plus, even though I'm 15 weeks pregnant, my nausea is still coming and going, and some days I don't want to eat a thing. Which I know is not good! So these past few weeks, what has gotten me through is focusing on what I am thankful for, and also looking forward to this long weekend!
I'm so excited for what is to come this weekend! Tomorrow, my hubby and I are splitting our time between my mom's house and my husband's aunt's house. Double the thanksgiving fun! I'm baking four batches of cornbread tomorrow so it'll be an early start to the day for me! But luckily when my motivation to get up early is to bake for the ones I love, it makes it a labor of love. And plus, I loveeeee baking!
Then Friday, it's the GILMORE GIRLS revival! The day I have been waiting for for MONTHS! I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan and have probably watched the entire season 10 times. And I promise that's not an exaggeration. So after a busy Thanksgiving day, I'm looking forward to having a few people over and watching the new Gilmore Girls episodes!
The rest of the weekend will be filled with more family time and I absolutely can't wait. It's so important to remember what we are thankful for, not only during Thanksgiving but every day of the year. I feel like it is impossible to have a grateful heart and at the same time, complain or feel bitter about anything. Gratitude puts us in the right state of mind and helps us appreciate everything God has blessed us with, no matter how big or small those blessings may be!
I am grateful for so many things this year. My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Paris earlier this year that we still talk about and remember. We bought our first home, and got pregnant shortly after! We also serve as youth leaders at our church and are blessed by our youth group daily. I am so grateful to God for giving us a wonderful home, a growing baby, and surrounding us with family and friends.
What are you thankful for this season? I'd love to hear, so please comment below! Hearing what everyone is thankful for is the kind of positive and wholesome thinking we need in the world today, so share away!
I hope everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving! Eat something yummy and enjoy your time with loved ones!
