I try to constantly be thankful for the little things in my life. I mean, it's one of the major focuses of this blog, right? I still haven't figured out exactly how I want to approach weekly roundups and where the confetti has its place in all that, but that's neither here nor there. I don't think being thankful for the things in your life should be confined to once a year.

Even so, I figured I would be remiss if I didn't talk about all the things I'm thankful for this holiday season.

I'm thankful for getting to spend three days with my family this week, including some time with just my brother. Garrett and I decided (kind of last minute) that we would just split up for Thanksgiving. So now he's just going to drop me off in Chapel Hill at my brother's on Wednesday afternoon, and he and I are going to head to the beach to my parents' condo for a few days.

I'm thankful for pumpkin dip in my fridge right now. #sorrynotsorry

I'm thankful for Thanksgiving. This is definitely my favorite holiday. I love Christmas, but there's always so much pressure surrounding it that sometimes it's hard to REALLY love. But Thanksgiving is usually pretty easy, and it kicks off the Christmas season for me. What's not to love, right?

I'm thankful for getting a chance to catch up with my college BFF. (He lives in San Diego so we don't get to talk that much.)

I'm thankful for fleece-lined leggings and super thick socks.

I'm thankful for three-hour coffee dates with Jenna.

I'm thankful my car passed inspection. (One day, I'll have my life together and do it BEFORE the end of the month.)

I'm thankful for beginning to get my blog back on track.

I'm thankful for a cute apartment that we get to decorate together on Saturday.

I'm thankful I got to see Kelsey twice last week.

I'm thankful for cute umbrellas (seriously, the weather around here is SO GROSS).

I'm thankful for board games and wine with friends last night.

I'm thankful for this blog and all the awesome people I've met through it.

And I'm thankful for YOU! Yes, you. I hope you guys all have a great great great Thanksgiving!! Stay safe, eat a lot, and I'll see you on Monday!!!!

The day my car passes inspection will always fall under the happiest moments of my life category.
