I decided to join some other bloggers today and share what I am currently thankful for. November is usually very busy in anticipation of the holiday season, but it’s important to take a step back and really appreciate everything you have.
My family has so much to be thankful for.
My husband and I both work in the insurance world. Our industry is fast paced, ever changing, and allows us to provide for our family. Not only do we work in the in same industry, we actually work in the same office for a family owned company. Getting to work with your spouse each day is pretty unique and I am truly thankful we have this! Lunch dates are so easy to orchestrate when you sit 20 feet from each other!
I’ve said this a million times, but we are beyond blessed when it comes to raising our babes. Hubs and I live by the motto “Work Hard, Play Hard”. We both thrive on hosting parties and planning social engagements, but none of it would be possible without support in raising our kids. It truly takes a village. During the week the babes go to an in-home daycare and Ms Sylvia is a godsend to our family. Leaving my kids everyday isn’t so bad when I know they have someone there who loves them like her own. On the weekends they have grandparents who spoil them with their time, love, and patience. Watching their relationships evolve is one of my favorite things. Last but not least we have support from friends. Between my incredible neighbors and our close friends we always have someone to help in a pinch. Even if that means bringing a bottle of wine over for a last minute playdate! I don’t ever take the support we get for granted.
I’m thankful for the value my husband has placed on tradition. There are certain things we do every year and it makes my heart so happy looking forward to them. This time of year is all about making memories and we have some pretty amazing traditions we get to share with our babes.
What about you? What are you thankful for right now?
