It’s such a beautiful day. The house is quiet this morning with just the sound of Kane cooking up some breakfast. I’ve got pies in the oven and we are just enjoying the calm before the storm. In retrospect, I should’ve baked the pies last night when my mom reminded me to around 7. But I figured that 8 is usually my bedtime so I decided to do it this morning. Little did I know that I would be up until 1 AM! I just could not sleep. Granted I did take a two hour nap earlier in the day. But still.
So instead of sleeping…I was up thinking of course. I began thinking of everything that I am thankful for this year. Every year I am humbled by the amount of people, things, etc that I have to be thankful for…but this year is a little different…a little better.
I am of course thankful for my family…
thankful for my friends…
thankful for my health.
I am even more so thankful for my husband. He works so hard to provide us with everything we could possibly want. I am so incredibly proud of him this year…we literally moved across the country and surprisingly are happier than ever. It was a good move for us…no doubt.
Perhaps what I am most thankful for this year is the little blessing that is growing inside my belly. I haven’t talked much publicly about our journey towards pregnancy…but it hasn’t been an easy one. So I am reminded every day by his kicks and movements just how lucky I am.
And for that…I am thankful.
So so thankful.
Today we are celebrating Thanksgiving just the two of us. Of course we both wish our families were here…but it’s kind of special because it’s our last year before we become a family of three.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
