Today the majority of people I know are sitting down to big dinners with family across the United States and today, I am not among them. There are many pros about living aboard but missing holidays, especially those in your home country that are not recognized abroad, is a definite con. I’ve already spoken with my mom today on the phone and am looking forward to a family video call later but even though we are not together I am insanely grateful.
I feel tremendously blessed to have such a loving family that I am close with. Not only does my family chat ping on WhatsApp at least a few times daily, my entire extended family – both sides – were all in attendance at our wedding. Every single person – and there is not one aunt, uncle, or cousin that the family does get along with. I thought that this was normal growing up but now I know this is something quite uncommon and I feel insanely grateful for my family. I would share a photo of the entire group but we do not have the professional photos back from the wedding so I will share this one of just my husband ** eek ** and my immediate family which we will be using for this years Christmas card:
I am also insanely grateful for my amazing friends, some of whom I would even consider family. They mean the world to me and over the past two years I have seen just how much love can conquer. This will be the last post of the week as I have already shared nearly 20 gift guides for those looking to shop the next few days and I will be back on Monday with my top Cyber Monday deals and the items that I have purchased. And if you can not wait until then, stay tuned to my social media; Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest where i will be sharing deals and more.
What are you insanely grateful for?
