Thanksgiving 2014 – Family Over Everything

Happy Thanksgiving! Besides being a long weekend and an excuse to get together with family and friends to stuff your face, Thanskgiving is about stopping to reflect on the good in your life.

This isn’t an easy thing for me because I’m an over achiever. Instead of looking fondly on what I have I’m always thinking about what I want next. I’m working really hard to get away from that mentality for a more content life.

I don’t need a holiday to make me thankful for my family. I feel lucky to have such close friends but my family is my backbone, my everything. We squabble like anyone else but always get over it fast, and we are there for each other through thick and thin. I’ve had people envy the closeness between siblings and cousins, I just wish we all lived closer to each other.

Thank you universe for giving me:

My amazing husband Ryan who is patient, kind, and loving.

Ryan’s sweet children.

I have never posted photos of their faces before. Typically you will see profiles or side of heads. This is just out of respect to their mother so I'm not plastering her children's faces all over the internet.

My crazy Mom who taught me you never outgrow a sense of humor.

My mom and sister. You almost can't tell which is which because my mom looks so amazing!
