Gobble, Gobble!! Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Relishing in a long & lazy Turkey Day morning over here..coffee, light brek of fruit & berries and of course, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
Although practicing an Attitude of Gratitude is something we should all do daily, Thanksgiving is a day to take a moment to stop, reflect and truly show appreciation for all the amazing blessings - people & things - we are so fortunate to have in our lives. Thanksgiving kicks off The Most Wonderful Time of Year. A season to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, bringing together family, friends & loved ones from a far, indulging in food & drink + all the little things that fill your heart with love & contentment.
Not to sound too cliche, but I truly am grateful to wake up everyday with the beautiful opportunity to live & breathe. For my health & strong body. My sweet family, incredible friendships that bring so much fun & laughter into my life and to have found the loveliest, most thoughtful, caring, generous & loving boyfriend to share my life with. And most recently, I am grateful beyond words for my incredibly special time in Austria...my tank is full ♡
