Thanksgiving and Thankful...and just full

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you are all busy preparing your meal or driving to your meal like we are doing this morning. We trade off where we spend Thanksgiving each year. Last year, we drove 25 minutes to my in-laws house so this year we are driving 2 hours to my aunt's house in San Jose. I'm really excited to see my family and spend time around the fire chatting and catching up.

Like I've done the past two years (see below), I've listed out what I am thankful for but those things haven't changed much so I'll make a short list:

I'm thankful for my husband, who is currently in the garage with AAA because he locked his keys in the car while cleaning his vehicle. This provided some comic relief for me and for that, I am thankful.

I'm thankful for my entire family because they are fun and loving. If I could see them every single day, I would. I'm glad we live so close and have so many occasions to hang out together.

I'm thankful for my kitty, Kitty. I can't even explain the joy she brings to our life. She fills the gap in our lives because we still don't have a kid. This cat is seriously loved in our house and I can't even remember what life was like before bringing her home.

I'm thankful for so many things in life and lately, I've made sure to slow down and count my blessings each day and night because so many people have so many struggles. I have a warm home filled with love. I have food in my pantry and money in the bank and for that and so much more, I am thankful.
