One of my favorite aspects of Thanksgiving is taking the time to remember how truly lucky and blessed we are. We all have so much to be grateful for. Friends, family, ample food, warm clothing, and a roof over our heads. These are just some of the blessings we have been given in our lives.
I, for one, am truly thankful to be a part such an amazing blogging community. I can’t even begin to name all the bloggers that I am thankful for, but I’d like to try and name out a few that have really made a difference in my life over the course of this first year. These women are so much more than bloggers; they are beautiful women on both the inside and out that work to make a difference not only in their lives, but in the lives of others. I am thrilled to call them friends. Without further ado.
I am thankful for…
- Cooper & Emily of The Motherhood – These are most simply put, the two most amazing women you’ll ever meet. Their kindness and generosity are something I have yet to see matched in the blogging world. They truly care about those around them and it shows.
- Holly over at 504 Main – I love this girl. Holly is constantly thinking about others and opening up her doors and her heart to help out those that need it. She has been there for me numerous times throughout the year and for that I am truly grateful.
- Alex from Ma What’s for Dinner – Alex is my oldest and best blogging buddy. She started supporting me waaaay back in the day when I only had a few posts to my name. She’s been there from the beginning and over that time we’ve formed a friendship that I know will continue to grow.
- Maranda from Jolts and Jollies – Maranda and I found each other through our blogs and haven’t looked back. This girl makes me laugh till I cry, she supports me through and through, and darn if she doesn’t throw out some of the tastiest recipes this side of the Mississippi.
There are sooo many more wonderful food bloggers out there, who all deserve to be recognized. Thank you to all those who touch us in our lives. You are all beautiful!
To wrap this up, I will be taking the day off on Friday to spend time with my family on this Thanksgiving weekend, but will be back on Monday with another tasty recipe to share.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I’m leaving you with a send off from my three little men (notice the tail on the back of the smallest; it didn’t last much longer than the length of this video).
