Every year at Thanksgiving the time comes around where I truly start to feel thankful for every little thing. When I was younger, I always liked Thanksgiving for the food, but waited for Christmas because that was the ‘better’ holiday- with gifts.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that it’s a million tiny things that make Thanksgiving one of the best holidays. My family’s table has gotten smaller throughout the years as loved ones have passed on. And so many things have changed especially this year.
The traditions that my family has taught me growing up, will stay forever though. Like waking up the day before Thanksgiving knowing that I’ll be spending the afternoon cutting apples, making pumpkin pie’s, getting the stuffing ready, and watching my mom prep the turkey. It’s so easy to remember the days where my grandma was able to make pies with us, but now it’s become a job for my mom and me. We quote classic family disputes, conversations and my dad even keeps our Hungarian prayer before we eat dinner.
In these coming years, I know that my family’s table will start to grow, with new family members, and friends to share the day with! Spending time with the people that matter most, is truly what this holiday is all about! Of course, you also have to eat way too much turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes!
In 2018, I’ve been thankful for so many things. Being able to spend the day with my mom, dad, brother, and sister in law is seriously one of the biggest blessings in itself! Sometimes, we get so caught up in the day today that we forget what the big picture is. I have a especially learned these past 11 months that putting yourself first, and your dreams first is the most important thing to do! I wouldn’t of been able to do it without the support of all of them!
November has been a big month for me, and as most of you know I went full-time as an entrepreneur with my business! It’s been a change, in the best way possible! As I’ve transitioned into this role, I’ve planned big things for my blog in these upcoming months!
To all of my readers, I’m so thankful for you! And I can’t wait to see where this new adventure brings me!
