Today I’m Thankful For…

22 Nov

Unfortunately I don’t know the original source of this, but I’ve seen it floating around Pinterest recently and I couldn’t think of anything more indicative of how much I have in my life to be thankful for this holiday season (and all of the time, really.) I’m so happy to have a life where I am able to come home from college (and GO to college) and spend time with my family (who love me and support me 100% of the time.) And now before I get too sentimental and mushy, here are nine (more) things to be thankful for on this national day of Thanksgiving :)

I am thankful for…

  • The taxes I pay because it means I have income.
  • The clothes that are a little too tight because it means I have food to eat.
  • My shadow who follows me because it means I am outside in the sunshine.
  • A lawn that needs to be mowed, windows that need to be washed, and gutters that need to be cleaned because it means there is a roof over my head.
  • The spot I find on the farthest end of the parking lot because it means I am able to walk.
  • All of the different opinions I hear regarding our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
  • The person around me who sings off-key, because it means I have ears that can hear.
  • The various piles of things around the living room because it means my loved ones are near me.
  • The alarm that wakes me up in the morning because it means that I am alive.

Dressing for Thanksgiving is always a little tricky. My family always goes on the casual side, but I still wanted to look festive. Leggings are a must, obviously, because they save you the embarrassment of having to unbutton your pants after the meal (ha.) I scored this southwestern print dress at Buffalo Exchange a few weeks ago for under $20, but I’ve seen it at a few stores online recently for 40 bucks, #win! (Note to self: must get spray tan before heading to Aruba in 2 weeks.)

P.S. I don’t typically wear my hair back… but I kind of like it. Thoughts? It’s different.

I apologize for this post so late in the holiday… I promised myself I was going to take the day off from posting but I just saw this adorable image over at the Free People blog and had to pass it on.
