feeling blessed


This is the time of the year where I like to look at my blessings and really focus on what I'm thankful for in my life. To go along with a project I'm apart of in a Facebook group online, I've decided to dedicate all my blogs this month to focus on what in my life brings me joy. This is the fourth and final part of my month-long Joyful November Blog posts.

I'm gonna be honest, this week got away from me. I was so busy with everything that I forgot to write! I do have lots of photos from last week though, couldn't ever forget those right?? Ha! The main take away is I'm so thankful for my family, all of it. A month really isn't a long enough time to talk about all the people I am thankful for! There is so many loved ones I could talk about in depth, but in the spirit of keeping it simple I just want to say, I feel so very blessed to have so many that love and care for me.

I truly hope you had a great holiday, enjoy some of my favorite photos from the festivities last week!
