Grateful|Thankful|Blessed

Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I thought what a better time to post a blog about being thankful. First of all, I want to say that I am so thankful to all of you! It has been so fun sharing my life and my family with you guys. Blogging is something I’ve been passionate about for the past year and I love being able to connect with other moms and friends through this platform. This year is different for me in many ways, mainly because we are a family of four and have completed our family. When I met Josh, I would have never thought five years later we would be married with two little perfect children. To think when I met Josh, he wasn’t interested in ever having kids and now here we are! I am so grateful for who we were before each other and who we became through growing together. I’m grateful for all the ways in which we challenged and changed each other because every single hard thing Josh and I went through is worth what we have today. Because of it, I know our marriage is so much stronger. We have our challenges just like every couple, but we really do make a great team and love each other unconditionally.

We both, more than anything, are so grateful that our babies are healthy. I am so lucky that I get to watch my little loves grow and learn everyday. I never in my wildest dreams imagined I would ever be this blessed and everyday I thank God for my two little {biggest} blessings. People are right when they say it takes a village to raise children and I am so gracious for the friends and family in our village. I know how much these people love my kids and how much it changes their childhood in the most positive ways. So this Thanksgiving, what I am most thankful for is FAMILY. ❤️ I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving!
