Believe it or not Thanksgiving means more to me than eating really good food or running the turkey trot. Thanksgiving is about saying thanks and spending time with your family.
Since I have been in college Thanksgiving has hands down become my second favorite holiday, first being Christmas. There is absolutely nothing better than getting a break from school, seeing your family, and of course eating sweet potato bars (my all time favorite dessert.) Even though the break is so short, I look forward to it every year.
I would argue with anyone, and say that my family is by far the best one out there! When we all gather up for the holidays it is always filled with funny jokes, good food, and then a whole lot of regret after all the desserts are gone! Even after eating a whole pumpkin pie, I seriously think I get an ab workout after spending time with everyone because I laugh so much. I have such good memories from our holiday gatherings, that when I just think about making even more in 3 days it brings a smile to my face. To me that is what Thanksgiving is all about.
This year will be the first year in my life that I have not spent Thanksgiving with my older sister, Brooke. It kinda upsets me that she is not going to be there to help me cook and then eat it all afterwards... hah just kidding Brooke it upsets me for more reasons than just those! It will be weird not to have one of the main people that I want to say "thanks" to this year not there. So, I am going to go ahead and say it now. Thank you Brooke for being one of the best sisters in the world! You help me each and everyday, sometimes I do not even have to talk to you I can just think of you, and it always motivates me to want to do bigger and better things with my life. You are an inspiration to us all, and we are all proud of you for making so many adjustments half way across the world. I wish you could be with all of us for Thanksgiving, but maybe we can skype with you at the table haha.
Anyways, I absolutely can not wait to be home with the rest of my family! I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving, and do not forget to say thanks to all the people that make your life special.
P.S The blog might be a little inactive for a few days, but I am home spending time with my family.... way to busy :)
