Thanksgiving

This year I have so much to be thankful for. Going off to college, despite how cheesy this sounds, has really made me realize how important some things are that I used to take for granted. Especially my family. 

I am so lucky to have my parents and my little brother and my sister. I'm also so thankful to have my grandparents who have really been there for me when I needed them this year. 

I am so lucky that I'm in college when I thought it wasn't going to work out. I'm also thankful for the friends that I've been making here, I've already made a few friends who I can imagine being in my future and who are there for me. 

I'm thankful for my best friends back home from York and for my best friend who I've had since kindergarten living in West Virginia. I'm thankful for a boy who loves me unconditionally, a boy who I can call my best friend, Derek.

 I'm also thankful for a good book, good food and good company. I'm also thankful for God's love. I want to thank my friends, my family, and Derek for always being there for me, for answering the phone and not getting frustrated when I'm crying or upset. I love them all so much. 

I'm also thankful for my 450 followers! That is so crazy! Thank you all for the nice e-mails and comments I get. Each one means a lot, and I love that you continue to take interest in the blog!

This year we spent Thanksgiving at my grandparents house in Maryland. We had 5 desserts for the 7 of us. Also, their little dog, Gracie got so much attention from all of us. I made my first pie (apple) and my first cheesecake (pumpkin) for Thanksgiving! So, I guess I'm also thankful that they turned out.

  2. Your family and friends are also very blessed to have you in their lives :)

    I love the picture with the wine glasses and the diet coke LOL

    I also like the paper plates on the regular plates. Keeps them sturdy and less to clean afterwards!! I may do that next year.
