What I'm Thankful For This Year

This time of year will make anyone step back and count their blessings, and I always enjoy writing mine out as well.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving and all things wonderful, I'm sharing my list for 2017 and what I'm thankful for this year.

my health- Last year, I wrote this one too, but it's something I will continue to be thankful for. 2017 and my pregnancy was a wild ride and I'm eternally grateful that things weren't as bad as they could have been. You just never know what could happen, and I'm so thankful that both myself and my family stayed safe and healthy this year.

delicious K-Cups- The coffee addiction is real, sometimes I'm on my 3rd cup by 2 pm these days. It's been real fun finding tasty K-Cups to pop in the Keurig. While in Target last week, I picked up these Pecan Pie ones and YUM, they're a must!
our supportive family & friends- Going through rough times can really pull a family together, and it can also remind you what amazing support systems you have. Friends who paint baby cribs with you, families who drive hours just to sit with you in a hospital room...the gestures go on and on. Thankful and blessed doesn't even begin to describe it.

coupons- This chic rarely pays full price- like once in a blue moon do I not have a coupon or code. With technology and free shipping and coupons and deals you can't help but be thankful when you're shopping and saving some dollars. It's an even better reason to hit the Target Dollar Spot more frequently...I mean, how cute are these inspirational file folders?!

mornings at home with Bella- I am so very grateful to work for a company who after 2 months of being out unexpectedly from work, still allowed me to to take a maternity leave once Bella was out of NICU. I tear up a few times a week just watching her wake up. Her little movements and arm stretches and yawns and smiles make me appreciate every second.
crockpot liners- Can I get an Amen?! I cooked some cool ranch taco chicken for dinner last week in the crockpot and didn't have to do any scrubbing or yelling at the dishes ;) These things are a dream, and while so simple I am ultra thankful for them.

my family under one roof- When you're separated from the ones you love the most, it tugs at your heart and can really play with your mind too. Life is good these days, with easy weekend mornings and movie nights in the coziness of our own home. Bringing baby Bella home after that long hospital stay for both of us was by far one of the best moments of my life.

I hope that all of you have the most beautiful Thanksgiving holiday with your people- whoever they are, thank them for joining you for a special day and slow down to enjoy the day a little longer. 
Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friends...I am so very thankful for all of you who make my days brighter when you show up here at Dream Big and Buy the Shoes and show me love...xo!
