Thankful for you.

With everything going on, it’s easy to get lost in the stresses of the day:

the to-do lists, work obligations, making sure everyone is alive, happy and fed, and the everyday stuff. I try to take moments throughout the day to soak it all in, and to maintain a spirit of gratitude amidst the hustle and bustle. 

Thankful for….

Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving today, or a beautiful Thursday, I hope you have an amazing one! A special thank you to our military who are serving overseas and unable to be with their families this holiday season. We appreciate you, and your sacrifices.

    This was gorgeous! Even though I’m British, I celebrated Thanksgiving with an American friend this year, and it was lovely to take the opportunity to practice gratitude.
