Today I figured I’d share my sparse thanksgiving home décor ideas and mix it up with my personal list of gratitude. Because I go all out for Halloween and Christmas, my Thanksgiving décor is limited to a few things like a small collection of mercury glass pumpkins and gourds, my repurposed Thanksgiving sign, and my fabric pumpkins and chalk paint pumpkins.
I have so much to be thankful for this year. First, I must mention the welcoming of our newest edition, Nala Jun. She was born on March 7th, and is now 8 months old already. After a few tough years of trying to get pregnant, we came to terms with being a small family of three and sold all our baby gear. Low and behold, when we decided to stop trying, our little Nala Jun blessed our little tribe.
Next, I should mention this crazy career I have. It is five years and growing strong. I’ve had the honor of working with some amazing partnerships. This year alone I have been in three magazines, on a radio show, had four interviews, and received seven awards. All of this while getting to work from home and take care of my little girls. It’s truly been an incredible ride.
Of course, I must mention my friends, old and new. Oh my girls! My stars! What would I do without you? I have such a close network of friends that I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world. Even as the years go by, we get stronger and stronger (maybe thanks to Facebook? Ha!). I’m also thankful for new friendships I have made this year as well. I have had the honor of schmoozing with some pretty awesome neighbors and fellow soccer and dance parents.
We have had a few health scares this year with our family. I mean, REALLY scary stuff. All I have to say is that I am thankful we made it through. I’ll continue to hope and pray for continued health.
My sweet girl, Mia. My mini. My true love. She is everything. She is a caring and helpful big sister, a kind (and goofy) friend, and loving and respectful daughter. Now in first grade, I am thankful for her hard work and willingness to try new things. ALWAYS laughing and smiling, this little munchkin makes every day a dance party (literally).
Lastly, my husband. He’ll probably never read this but I’m ok with that. He is the most brilliant and hardest working man I know. We have built this unstoppable fortress. The two of us have never been stronger and more in love. I’m thankful that our bond is the example set for our daughters.
Phew! And I feel like the future holds even greater things. I can’t wait to see.
Oh and P.S. I hope you like my Thanksgiving decorations…ha!!
