Happy Turkey Day!

Oh yes, it's that time again. As I walked down the hall this morning, I could smell the turkey roasting in the oven, I could hear the steady hum of voices intertwined with the excited sounds of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. I could see the hustle and bustle of everyone working together in hopes of achieving another fantastic Thanksgiving. You see, these are moments I cherish. Everyone in the kitchen cooking and laughing together, then gathering around the table to feast on the food everyone has put so much love and effort into. I love it. So, today, I wanted to take a few moments and post a "traditional" blog post. I wanted to let you all know of a few things within my life that I am thankful for.

1. Jesus and my church family 

I am beyond grateful for Jesus and his saving grace. If it weren't for him, there would be no possible way I could make it through this life. Okay, I honestly have the BEST church family in the whole world. They are there whenever and for whatever.   

2. My Family 

We may have our differences but, I love each of these crazy people! They make my life interesting and I'm so incredibly joyful. 

3. My group of phenomenal friends {you should be jealous}

I seriously don't know what I would do without these ladies in my life. I have been highly blessed by God in every way, but especially in the friend department. I know no matter what I'm facing they will always be right by my side. I love you guys! 

4. My Family in Africa 

OH. MY. GOODNESS. How adorable are these faces?? I mean really, how could you not fall in love with each of them? I am so privileged to be able to say, I have family in Africa. I consider each child that I was able to meet and shower with love, one of my very own. I miss them every. single. day. and I'm counting down the days till I can see those sweet babies again. 

5. Books 

There is nothing like getting completely lost in a book. It makes all your problems seem to drift away. This quote pretty much sums it up my obsession with reading. 

6. Netflix.  

I have a problem if you can't tell yet...I straight up love me some Netflix. I can sit down and plan on watching only one episode of a TV show but nope, Netflix has other plans. By the way, how stinking cool is this shirt? I think I should add it to my wardrobe soon! 

7. Junk Food 

Yes, I said it, I love Junk food. All types to be exact. 


8. Disney/ Marvel movies. 

I know, I know. I'm totally weird for putting these in a Thankful post but, both Disney and Marvel movies bring me an immense amount of joy; therefore, I am truly thankful for them.Can you say kid at heart? 

 Whelp, I do believe that pretty much sums up my Thankful post. What are some things you are thankful for? I Hope you all have a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving!


  1. We can be best friends. Marvel, disney &junk food. Yes yes yes. :)

    1. Yay, I've found a new friend! I don't run into to many ladies who like Marvel as much as I do, so we need to have some nerd conversations ASAP. :)
