What are you thankful for?

22 Nov

It’s this week that I really have a ton to be thankful for.  Great friends, fantastic family, a job that keeps me (sort of) fed, and a life that is really fulfilling.  Here are some of the best things in the world in my eyes.. things that I will always be thankful and grateful for!!!  ❤

Karl doesn't eat.. c'mon, who are they kidding?

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is so iconic American – and cheesey – that you just HAVE to love it and watch it every year.  There’s really no getting around it!  I love sitting around in my PJ’s, with my coffee, watching my family cook and staring at the floats on TV.. it makes me feel like I’m five years old again.

Disney.. Do I really have to explain this one?  The parks, the characters, the movies.. The Main Street Electrical Parade!!  It’s ALL good! I remember my first trip to Disney World, I think I was around 7 or 8 and I can remember every single detail of that magical day.  It was pure perfection in my eyes.  I still love going, as a matter of fact.  I love the fact that you can really, and truly become a child again.  I love seeing the couples wander hand-in-hand, wearing Mickey ears.. the best part being, they’re elderly.  🙂

 

I am the prettiest princess in all the land.. Disneyland at least!

I am a Red Sox fan.  Not a bandwagon fan, but a true-blue part of Red Sox Nation.  We are a mighty stronghold, and when you live in Boston, Massachusetts..  the Red Sox become a part of you.  You can’t escape them.  This city and it’s inhabitants eat, drink and breathe baseball every year.  Every single season, people come out of the woodwork, from being cooped up all winter long with no baseball to turn to, and they come out in throngs to Fenway Park for the Opening Day Game.  If you have never experienced the pandemonium that is Red Sox Nation – I urge you to come to a game and see for yourself.  You’ll either be shocked, or in love.  Go Sox!!

 

Some classy chicks in Beantown...

You said it, kid.

 

So, the number one thing I am thankful for is my amazing friends, family and my boyfriend, Brandon.  I thank my lucky stars everyday to have such an incredible group of people around me.  I am blessed to have them and honored to call them true friends.  We get into a lot of trouble together, make awesome memories and have great times and hilarious stories to tell afterwards.  I don’t know where I would be without them…  This week, sit around and watch Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, drink some coffee, eat some amazing food and ask yourself, “What am I thankful for?”  HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
