In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be nice to share a few things I'm especially thankful for this year!
1. New Friendships
This tops the list for me because I've been so blessed by the people who have come into my lift this year. There are so many creative women I've met over the years who inspire me everyday, and this year was no exception. To name a few - my bestie Erin Krespan (yes I know it seems like we've been friends forever - it feels like we have!), another friend and photographer (who took this photo!) Leah Beilhart, Sylvia Coella (who I desperately try to become more like every day) and so so so many more. Connecting with others and meeting new friends is, in fact, my favorite part of blogging.
2. My Number One
Very often, I find myself worn out from a long day at work and a dreadful commute home...and I'm so grateful for my hubby picking up the slack day after day. And who can forget the weekend instagram snaps and cold coffee he's had to endure for a mere photo! Whether it's doing the laundry or cooking dinner, I actually don't know how I'd get by without him.
3. Supportive Family
Shout out to my mom for making me meals when my honey's out of town and for helping out with our mischievous dog, to dad for always having us for dinner last-minute when we're too tired to cook, and to my sister who sends me funny snapchats and memes to brighten my day.
4. My Church
While I grew up going to church, I've never had an experience like the one at our newer church. I've met some of my favorite people there, gotten to play a part in building their website, and help out with social media. It's always such a great break from my hectic week - and a saving grace for my sanity.
5. Great Restaurants in DC
This seems SO silly, I know...but food is very important to me! I love finding new places to connect with others...a few favorites include Chaia, &Pizza, Rose's Luxury, Cava, Dolcezza and so so many more.
What are you thankful for this year?
