Did you guys survive Thanksgiving?! I had a lovely turkey day filled with tasty food and family. What did you do for Black Friday? I was lazy, ate waffles and bacon and drank mimosas and then went for a lovely fall walk. No Black Friday shopping for me — unless you count shopping from my couch in my pjs.
Seeing as this is the season of gratitude, we’re going to shake things up a bit this Friday Five.
Here are five groups of things I’m ever so grateful for. Thank you for inspiring, educating, and supporting me, whether you knew it or not.
1. People: my parents, my “sisters” from other parents, my boyfriend, framly, and extended family for supporting me through what looked like it was going to be a tough year filled with heartbreak and massive changes. I seriously couldn’t have blossomed without all of your love and laughter.
2. Travel bloggers: The World Wanderer, The Lazy Travelers, GQ Trippin’, Currently Exploring and Mrs. O Around the World your words and travels helping me be adventurous and creating a sense of wanderlust for places I’ve never been.
4. Practical things: my job, Betsey and Marvin, my running shoes, my yoga studio and Headspace for keeping my happy, loved, and healthy, both mentally and physically.
5. Frivolous things: the ability to travel, my iPhone, the Internet, Champagne, and grande salted caramel hot chocolates with extra whip for keeping me connected to things I love and bringing a smile to my face when I need it most.
What are you grateful for this time of year?
