Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! This is my favorite holiday of the whole year. The food, getting to see my family, giving thanks, and of course....THE FOOD x)

I'm going to list a few things I'm thankful for along with some pictures of course.

1.) Family/Friends/Boyfriend

I'm thankful for my family because they are there for me when no one else is. I mean, most of the time I can count on my friends, but when I can't, my family is always there and I really appreciate them for that.

I'm thankful for my friends because without them, school and my weekends would be so boring. They make me laugh, give me confidence, and help me on work whenever I need it, and I love them for that. I'm also thankful for my boyfriend because he loves me for exactly for who I am: my quirky, nerdy, clumsy, talkative, random, silly self. And for that, I can't thank him enough.

2.) My Freedom and Rights

I forget about this one sometimes, but it's definitely something we should all be thankful for. Some countries don't have the privileges, freedoms, and rights that we do. Some don't get to pick anything they want to do in life because it's already chosen for them. I'm thankful to live in the USA where I can be whoever I want to be.

3.) School

Even though:


I am thankful that I go to a good school where I get the education I need to make it to college, which will help me get a good job someday. I'm thankful my school doesn't demand high tuition or fees for me to go there. Even though school is a drag sometimes, we couldn't make it in this world today without an education. I'm thankful my school is a good one too, and we really don't have that many bullies or druggies.

4.) Music

I honestly couldn't go one day without listening to music. It's what makes my day good; I can't get ready in the morning without listening to music and I can't fall asleep without it. I can't NOT play my clarinet everyday. I can't sit in a car with no music or be on the computer without listening to music at the same time. When I feel like I'm all alone and no one understands, music does. There's a song for every situation someone is in, and it always makes me feel somewhat better. Without music, life would be dull and gray.

5.) Love ♥

I believe that love makes the world go round. There can never be TOO much love. We need more love in this world, honestly. Hate is a terrible thing, we should all replace it with love of some kind. I love how there are so many different kinds of love too, but the thing is, it's still the same thing. No matter HOW you love someone, the important thing is that you do love them. Love conquers all.

I hope all of you have a VERY WONDERFUL Thanksgiving with your families and loved ones. Appreciate everything you have in your life, and be thankful. :)


I just couldn't pass up a Charlie Brown picture! :)

I love the illustrations! :) It's nice to remember where you've been to get where you are now. I don't know about you, but I think I've been blessed with the most beautiful life God could give me, and I am sooooo very thankful for it. I'm particularly glad you mentioned freedom. It's so easy to forget that what we have doesn't, and unfortunately probably will never, belong to everyone on this planet. Men and women of our country have died to give it to us. The LEAST we can do in return is acknowledge that. I'm proud of you for voicing that. :)

You are so lovely. I love your list. That's pretty much the things that make up a person's life. Family, friends, lover, love, school/work, and freedom. I'm thankful for life :)
I'm glad you had a great thanksgiving!
I hope you have a wonderful week!

This is a good thank you list! I totally agree with everything. I'm thankful for you, my love. I also can't sleep without music haha.

P.S. I hope you consider donating hair at Locks of Love and I read about the scam online. I hope it's not true!

Lots of love, B

This has been so insightful! Now, when I come to think of it, I never thought of Thanksgiving from this perspective...I'm glad I can see it a different way now!
