the holidays are here.

I wish you all the happiest of Thanksgiving today. Hopefully you are as lucky and blessed as me to have a roof over your head, clothes to keep you warm, and friends, family, and loved ones to share it with. Who cares what you're eating, or how big your turkey was. How expensive the wine, or fancy your outfit. 

It is only 2pm eastern time and it has already been the best thanksgiving I have ever experienced. We all slept in this morning until almost 11am. It was freezing cold outside and raining silently. The smell of coffee and creamer lingers downstairs as well all make our way to the living room in our warmest sweats and curl back up on the couches. 
There's no stress. We have no where to get ready for, we have no one to make happy today. 
We are healthy, happy, and for today we have each other; the individuals that know you the best and understand you for you are and love you just the same. What more could you need than that? 

Regardless if you're running across the street in the rain to get a burger from the $1 menu at McDonald's or dressing in your finest shoes to eat the finest most expensive turkey. The most important thing is that you get to be happy and loved and not alone on the holidays. 

*happy holiday season*

may you appreciate the simple and 
most blessed things in life
