My Christmas tree

Our family tree that goes up November 1st each year!

What am I thankful for? Wow. I could list a million things that I am thankful for. It would take much more than a blog post to cover all of them. Healthy kids, a loving husband, my home, the amazing opportunities I’ve had, but what I really want to tell you about are the little things that make me smile this time of year. I’ve always loved this quote. “Enjoy the little things in life for someday you will realize they were the big things.” So, here is a list of some of the little things that I’m truly thankful for.

The sound of leaves crunching under my feet
A hot mug of coffee with Pumpkin Spice creamer
Watching the leaves change color
The quiet peacefulness of the lake this time of year.
An outdoor fire and watching football.(Roll Tide!)
The taste of a medium rare ribeye steak
The way my son likes to snuggle under his big soft blanket
The time spent decorating my Christmas Tree (there are so many amazing memories hanging on it)
A wet nose kiss from my dogs, Honey and Ruby, every morning
The daily “I love you, Beautiful. Have a good day.” texts from my husband
My daughter’s ability to always say what’s on her mind. She speaks the truth!
For long distance friends who can seamlessly continue a conversation we started a month ago
That I’m from Alabama! The weather is perfect this time of year!
The smell of cloves and oranges simmering on the stove
Christmas movies. My favorites are Love Actually and Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Spending Holiday weekends at my mom’s house. She lets up sleep over even though we only live 5 minutes away.

Most importantly, I’m thankful for all of the truly amazing people I have in my life. You all make this journey truly meaningful.
