Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! 
I hope that you are all spending the day with your family or friends enjoying each others company and plenty of food. This year more than last I was so so ready to get home for Thanksgiving. I really value the time I have at home with my family and catching up with old friends and this year I yearned for it more and more. I think that must be due to a harder and busier semester filled with loads of school work and extracurriculars that leave me with less time for myself. With a harder semester I try to keep things more in perspective and remember all that I have to be thankful for on a daily basis.

I am so lucky to have found the perfect college for me, have made amazing friends, been given the coolest opportunities, have a supportive family, and get to share all of this with y'all. One way I remind myself on a daily basis of the best parts of each day is with a Daily Reminder Journal. I won't lie to y'all, since camp this summer I have slacked on it some but with the new year approaching I hope I'll be able to get back into writing down the best parts of my days daily. I adore flipping back through it after a month or two has gone by and I know I will appreciate it even more when I can look back on it after college as well. If you are looking for a gift to give someone you truly care about this is it. I gave one to Nell and love that we both keep up with our favorite experiences in these. It's almost like a diary without the title. This is the perfect way to keep my mindset in check to remember to be positive because of all I have to be thankful for. 

If you ever want to read a book that will surely keep your thankfulness in check you must read The Happiness Project. This may be one of my very favorite books and was such a positive read. It is light hearted with constant reminders not to take yourself too seriously and that mistakes are part of your journey! 

In the spirit of the holiday I just wanted to take a second to thank all of you. I can't thank you all enough for all of the support and encouragement y'all provide me with to continue to express my creativity and write posts on a daily basis. Whenever I need a break from life I love to read the comments y'all leave on here or my instagram or respond to y'alls emails. When beginning my blog I didn't really picture people reading it and now that y'all take part of your day to listen to my random ramblings I couldn't imagine blogging without you!

I would love to hear what y'all are thankful for or how you remember to stay thankful on a daily basis!
