Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!


I had such a wonderful day with family giving thanks for all of the great things I have in my life. I always remember as a little girl waking up early and running downstairs to see my dad prepare the turkey. As soon as I would open the door of my room, all of the heavenly scents of food would fill my nose and I would know that I had an exciting day ahead of me. I still feel this way as a teenager!


Today the food was plentiful and certainly mouthwatering. After dinner I was full to the brim and took a little cat nap :) Matt came over and we had desert. I am a total sucker for pumpkin pie and had a big ole' slice with a pile of whipped cream on the top! It was a cozy and just all together really pleasant day.


I am just so incredibly thankful and appreciative of everything I have in my life. I am so truly blessed to have a healthy and happy family, a warm house to sleep in, plenty of food always on the table, and such wonderful friends and a wonderful boyfriend, of course. Every night before I go to bed I thank God for everything he has given me. Sometimes I feel so lucky. I think this quote pretty much sums everything up for me:


"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."


And I am so very thank for everything that I have!
With much love, Lauren

I used to celebrate Thanksgiving when in school because I attended an American one.
I kinda miss it now though, I think I'm starting to celebrate it again next year!
We could definitely use it as a country too me thinks! :p :))
