Happy Thanksgiving y'all! I'm away from my family in California this Thanksgiving and have been spending the past week with my boyfriend and his family in Nashville. It is so wonderful to visit and be on a vacation, but I sure do miss home! We're headed out this afternoon for a not-so-traditional Thanksgiving dinner at Maggiano's. I'm sure going to miss my mama's delish pumpkin pie!
Its this time of the year that reminds me to be thankful for everything that I have and just how blessed I am.
I am so thankful for such an amazing boyfriend. We both relocated to teach in rural Mississippi and met during our first year of teaching. He is kind, considerate, and always makes me laugh. Plus he puts up with my teacher-pinterest-blog talk all.the.time. I am so blessed!
I am so thankful for my mom and the rest of my wonderful family. My mom has been so generous to my kiddos year after year! While we live thousands of miles apart, we talk or text daily and are bffs!
I cannot forget what a blessing the blogosphere has been to me! I am so incredibly thankful for each person that reads my blog. I love being able to share ideas and learning from one another. I especially love that I get to peek into teachers classrooms all across the country! Not only has blogging blessed me but Teachers pay Teachers as well. I cannot tell you how the resources that I have purchased through Teachers pay Teachers have changed my teaching. And I am incredibly flattered that teachers are able to use things I've created in their classrooms too! THANK YOU so much! :)
And this post wouldn't be complete without mentioning my babes, Duncan and Jackson. I just love them to death! Being greeted by their wagging tails every afternoon is simply the best :)
I hope you have the most wonderful Thanksgiving with those you love!
