t h a n k s g i v i n g

I hope you spend today surrounded by loved ones, your heart full of happy, your glass full of wine, and your plate full of deliciousness.

Be grateful for the who, what, when, where, and how today.

Be grateful for who you have. Every single person in your life serves a purpose, from those who've shown you kindness big and small to the difficult people - they show you exactly how you don't want to be.

Be grateful for what you have, and not just the big things or the material things. Recognize and appreciate the simple things that make life wonderful - the way you feel when you're with your best friend, hearing laughter coming from the next room, going to bed in clean sheets, the scent of winter in the air, the unrestricted joy in a dog wagging its tail. All the little things.

Be grateful for the times when you were down and picked yourself back up, because they made you stronger; and for the times you lived to the fullest and laughed your head off, because they made you stronger too.

Be grateful for how you got to where you are, and to all the people, opportunities, good choices, mistakes and crooked paths that led you to today. We're the sum of all of our experiences, good and bad. Appreciate your journey.

And to those out there like me who don't like their food to touch: be grateful you can get up and wash your plate in the sink in between helpings if need be. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. 


  1. Beautiful day to all! Being thankful & grateful is the KEY to a happy life.

    Love your MOMMA

  2. I love that first image. It's so true and such a great reminder!

    Have a happy Thanksgiving :)

  3. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (I'm sure you did). I know you've mentioned the food touching thing before I just can't imagine it, does it only apply to the food while it's on the plate? Does that mean you never put them together on your fork either? So you'll never take a piece of meatloaf or something and put mashed potatoes on top of it?
    Sorry for the questions, just trying to wrap my brain around this.
    Thank you for the stuffing recipe!
    I hope you weren't too traumatized by your first Thanksgiving eve out in a while.

    1. We had a great Thanksgiving! I hope you did too, and that you enjoyed your stuffing.

      Luckily Thanksgiving Eve was spent at Sandy's, so it wasn't amateur hour there. Whew!

      So yes...I never put them on my fork together, and I actually eat one thing on the plate at a time.

  4. Haha so true! I hate when food touches! But great post! Happy thanksgiving!
