Yes, I know. Thanksgiving was so last week, and yet again, this blog post is late lol. Hey! It hasn’t been a FULL week (or month) late this time so it’s all good. Anyway, if you know me, my favorite season is fall and my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. There’s just something about it that makes me feel at home. I love the whole, waking up early to prep the turkey and getting it in the oven. I love the ALL DAY prep for dinner. I love turning on the TV and watching the Macy’s day parade. I love blasting and singing Christmas music as the whole family is working together to prepare our Thanksgiving meal. I love watching the football games. I love the food and getting major food comas after the meal, then taking a family nap, waking up from that nap, and eating all over again. I LOVE IT ALL. This year was just as exciting, but maybe even more so because it was mine and Raf’s 1st Thanksgiving as husband and wife. I know we’ve had many, many Thanksgivings together with all the years we’ve dated, but this year was different. A good kind of different.
Raf’s mother and her boyfriend hosted Thanksgiving this year so we all headed there for lunch. We had an amazing spread, great conversation, and of course, great company. Afterwards, Raf and I headed home because we had Thanksgiving dinner at our house and I had to prep a few more things before dinner. Once again, more food, more food comas, and a great time.
There’s so much to be thankful for. This year has been such an amazing year and it’s not even over yet. Raf and I started the year off engaged and I had been working a few months at my job. The wedding planning began, my sister graduated college, and I got married…just to name a few things. My family is complete, my heart is full, and we are truly blessed. God is so good. Of course I’m thankful and grateful everyday, but Thanksgiving is special because it is a day where we can reflect on the countless blessings in our lives with our families. We have about a month left of the year and I know that it’ll be great!
