Being thankful this holiday season

It’s important to remember what we already have this holiday season, so I asked some of my wonderful sponsors to write about what they’re thankful for. This is one of the sweetest groups of ladies I’ve ever worked with and I just know you’ll love their answers. Because it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Being thankful this holiday season

1. Kristyn of Chits & Giggles
I am thankful for my family. They are always there when you need them and give you advice even when you don’t necessarily ask for it. I obviously wouldn’t be here without them and I don’t think I could go through a day/week/month without talking to them. I am also so incredibly thankful for my fiance. I honestly don’t know where I would be without him. His love and support is constant and I can’t imagine my life without him in it.

2. Jess of Stamp in My Passport
I’m thankful for a hot drink and a long conversation by a fire, the luxury of waiting for a job that I’m interested in, and having the opportunity to see the world. I’m also thankful for my parents who taught me to be independent and to dream big; no matter my lofty goals, they encourage me every step of the way. But most importantly I am thankful for friends and family.

3. Amber of My Life in High Heels
I am thankful for an amazing God, incredible family, awesome friends, and exciting new adventures in Australia.

4. Dee of A Deecoded Life
I am thankful for the things that I take for granted most of the time – a healthy family, a job that pays for my needs and a lot of my wants, wonderful true friendships, a blog which allows me to exercise my passion for writing, a good head but a better heart, and a life that my teenage self didn’t even think was possible.

5. Amanda of Living in Another Language
I’m thankful for the opportunities my husband and I have had since our marriage in 2010. We’ve traveled all over Asia, have had the experience of a life time living in a completely different culture than our own, and have learned how to live completely independently. I am thankful for my husband and the support he has been to me in the past three years. He’s always there exactly when I need someone! And I’m thankful for coffee. Let’s face it, the world would be a lot lazier of a place if we didn’t have coffee around.

6. Debbie of Tales of the Benedicts
This Season I am thankful for all of the wonderful blessings in my life. I am thankful for my amazing husband who is supportive, loving, and kind. I am thankful for a roof over my head and food on the table. I am thankful that I have a job and I never want to take that for granted. Lastly, I am thankful for the great country I live in and the freedoms I have.

7. Britta of The Boots Parade
There are so many things that I am thankful for in my life but the biggest things would have to be the people. I am so lucky to have an amazing family that has always supported me. I am also so thankful for my boyfriend who I learn to love more every day. Every day I do my best to show my thanks and how grateful I am for these people!

8. Shana of Keep It Simple
There is so so much to be thankful for this season. I am so thankful for our new house– for a place to begin a new chapter of our lives. I am also so thankful for my husband and our families. Even though we can’t see our family as much as we want, it is always so wonderful whenever we do. And they bless our lives each time we are with them!

What are you thankful for?
