Humbled and Thankful

In the history of my life, I can honestly say that I have never had such an eventful and uneventful- all at the same time – Thanksgiving, ever. It seemed like one plan after another had to be changed, modified, or canceled. And, amidst my favorite holiday of the year being less than lackluster, I still feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I’m not sure how many of you know this but I am a pretty lucky girl! I’ve crossed off so many things from my “bucket list” – and many of them fairly recent accomplishments!

My life isn’t lavish to the average person but to me my life is just what I had always dreamed up. I don’t think material things define the riches of someone’s life but rather the amount of things they hold in their heart, the memories they draw upon to comfort them or to reflect upon, the people they love who surround them in times of need. I am so grateful to have an honest, caring and hardworking husband, a (now) healthy baby girl, a wonderful family (whom I wish I could’ve have spent the day with). I am also so blessed to have such great friends, I don’t know where I would be without them ❤

I have a beautiful home, I've started my own business doing what I love, I get to spend all of my time with my daughter and watch her as she grows and learns and discovers.

Thank you to everyone who has ever believed in me. It means the world to me and I am forever grateful.

ps, the Turkey was amazing, Maddie's rash appeared, I had my pumpkin cheesecake and finished the night with "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" and that is all that matters in the end.

Always a pretty table, even if it's the two of us! (Maddie was napping)
