I'm not brave enough to venture out into the Black Friday madness. My family enjoys staying up late on Thanksgiving after our food comas are in full effect. The clean up is just as fun as the food prep with music, dancing, and laughter!

My grandma is visiting from Florida and like a true grandmother, is taking us out today to get spoiled! (Aren't grandmas the sweetest?!) We'll be hitting the outlets hoping most of the crowd is now sleeping or hanging out at home enjoying their bargains.

There's so much to be thankful this year! I just finished my last season of playing soccer. I still haven't been able to register it yet. Some days life feels normal and other days I have no idea what to do. I'm thankful for my teammates that make up a huge family that I would go crazy without! So here's to starting a new chapter in my life- the athlete in me won't ever be satisfied without competition so we'll see what new things I'll get into! I couldn't have asked for a more loving and supportive family and find myself being thankful for them every day. What a blessing!

I'm getting things ready for a trip with my best friend over Christmas break! South America better be ready! We'll be staying with a lot of my family who live in one of the most beautiful countries- Chile! I can't wait to post photos and share our journey.

What are you thankful for this year?

I want to create a blog that chronicles this part of my life and all of life's little treats that I am so blessed to experience.
