Happy Thanksgiving, friends. I  hope you're all enjoying a wonderful day filled with delicious food, family and friends, and all of the things you are thankful for. We have a fun filled weekend ahead of us seeing A's family and mine, and we'll be heading off to Oklahoma this afternoon after a meal at his sister's house. I know I've said it a million times, but I absolutely love this time of the year. I love spending time with family that I don't get to see that often, and if I'm being honest, I love the excuse to eat a ton of yummy food with no regard to calories or health :)

This year I'm feeling especially thankful, and I wish I could just freeze time for a second and enjoy all of the amazing things I am currently blessed with. Here are just a few of the things I'm oh so grateful for.

My husband. 
A and I have been together for more than five years now, and I'm pretty sure things are getting better and better with time. Of course we have our ups and downs, but we make it a point to work on our relationship and to talk about any issues that may arise. He is my best friend in the world, and I am so incredibly happy that he's the man I get to spend the rest of my days with.

My Grayson.
This little baby has changed my life in more ways than I ever thought possible. I never knew I could love someone so is absolutely indescribable. He makes me laugh every day with his silly little personality, and he smothers me with hugs and kisses all day long. My heart could burst with love for this little guy, and I'm so blessed to be his mama.

My Addie.
This sweet pup taught me what it was like to put someone else's needs above my own. She was my first "baby", and I love her more than any doggie should be loved. I am so attached to her that I panic any time I think about her someday not being with me. She's slightly crazy, but she's my favorite girl in the whole world.

My parents.
The older I get the more appreciative I am for having the parents that I have. They were insanely protective when I was growing up, but now I totally get it. And now that I'm grown, I honestly see them both more as friends than parents.

My home.
I feel so lucky that A and I were able to buy a home so early in our lives together. Over the last couple of years we have truly turned it into a cozy little place that's perfect for our family. I love it here!

My friends.
I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. They're spread out all over the place and I don't get to see them often, but whenever we get together it's like no time at all has passed. Love those girls!

My "job".
To say that I feel lucky to be a stay at home mom is a huge understatement. I absolutely love spending all of my time with Grayson, teaching him new things and witnessing everything that he does. It was totally unexpected that I would get the chance to stay home with him, so I think I'm all the more grateful to be here.

My Blog Friends!
I seriously am so thankful for each and every one of you. Those of you who consistently comment have come to feel like friends of mine, and I love keeping up with all of you on your blogs as well. It's crazy to me how we all share so much of our lives with perfect strangers, and then that can end up resulting in some really special friendships. I only hope that someday I get the chance to meet some of you in "real" life!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Have a wonderful day!!!
