23 Days of Gratitude | Day 23 - Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the culmination of 22 daily expressions of gratitude, and it is only fitting that my final post focuses on my inspiration for this series.

There will be plenty of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie today, but most importantly, I’ll be surrounded by family. I’m grateful that Thanksgiving gives me the opportunity to celebrate the very best part of my life.

23 Days of Gratitude | Day 22 - Holiday Traditions

One of the best parts of having our families nearby is that we’ve gotten to continue many of the holiday traditions that were established when my husband and I were growing up.

I like to reread them every once in a while, and each time I do, I’m reminded of how lucky I am to be married to him.

Maybe it’s genetics, or maybe it’s just good luck…but either way, I am incredibly grateful that both of my kids love music as much as I do. Before they were born, I had fantasies of teaching them all my songs and listening to them sing along with me, and that is pretty much my reality now.

23 Days of Gratitude | Day 7 - Mimi

I am infinitely grateful to my mom for all the things she has taught me and provided for me throughout my life, and could write an entire novel dedicated to her.

But in this crazy season of life, raising a toddler and a preschooler, I am especially grateful for everything she does for our family in her role of “Mimi”.
