I love Thanksgiving. It is by far one of my favorite holidays…Christmas is first. So in the spirit of gratefulness, I want to take some time and reflect on some of the things that I am thankful for this year.
A Healthy Pregnancy
It was just four months ago that I was carrying my baby. My second pregnancy, I navigated it like a first timer. Being careful to do everything “right” whatever that is…as to not endure a premature hospital stay. But God is awesome and now I am a momma of two. Still can’t believe that sometimes…
I have 2 amazing children that I am learning and growing from everyday. Children are gifts. I am thankful for them and will cherish them everyday.
He has held me through the sunshine and rain and was made just for me. I really believe that.
Spend a few minutes reading The Domestic Life Stylist and you will realize that I caught the “travel bug” really bad. I consider it a privilege that my family and I get to travel both near and far several times a year. I love the fact that our kids will be able to draw from references from real life experiences when they read about characters and places in books and literature. As a type this, our suitcases sit on the living room floor after returning from our most recent family adventure just yesterday. I’m sure that I will be writing about it soon.
I would be remissed if I did not mention food. Thousands of people around the world go without food every single day. So it is with gratitude that I buy groceries, that I cook and that I will be eating this Thanksgiving.

I’m thankful for each of things, too. With the possible exception of travel near and far. Our version is roadtrips! This month Oregon, next month possibly Utah! Not as glamorous as the Caribbean, but family is our pull.
One other thing I’m thankful for this year is the ability to share my heart on my blog. Thank you SO much, LIsa, for supporting me by reading and sharing. You are the best.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving season, girl! I’m sure you’ll be whipping up some darn good food!
I have to tell you, as much as I have traveled I have never been to Oregon or Utah. I’ve heard that Portland in particular is beautiful. The destination is not as important as the experience. I am glad that you get to share the precious time with your family and your loved ones. By the way, you make it easy for me to support and share. And you are on target…it wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t whipping up some “magic” in the kitchen 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving.
