Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey friends!

In the US of A, it is Thanksgiving today! So excited to spend the day in fitness, family, and food activities :)

Because it is a holiday of thankfulness, AND it is Thursday (I do Thankful Thursdays here on the blog), this is going to be an epic thankful Thursday post…in honor of my years on this earth.

*These are not listed in any particular order, nor do they represent the year of what I was thankful for then. It was just a fun number to choose to list off all the reasons of gratitude right now…..oh, and this is NOT a comprehensive list!

T-day 2009

I am Thankful

1. I am deeply thankful for my faith. It grounds me, gives me purpose in this life, helps me be better, and answers all those ‘hard’ questions.

2. I am super grateful for my family. I have amazing parents, 9 awesome siblings, 4 fabulous in-law siblings, and 9.45 adorable nieces and nephews.

7. I am thankful for his family, my in laws. I was afraid I’d have scary in laws (hello Hollywood!), but I couldn’t have been more blessed– I have great in-law mom/dad, 4 in-law siblings (1 is in heaven), and 8 cute adorable nieces/nephews (1 is in heaven).

8. I am thankful for spinach.
