Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I hope you've had a wonderful day filled with family, friends and good food!  We've had an awesome day with my family and are incredibly thankful that both of Eliot's sisters were both able to join us this year!  

This time every year, I like to reflect on everything I'm thankful for.  (Here are my past posts for 20132014 and 2015.)  This year, it seems especially important considering how much negativity and uncertainty surround us.

First, I'm thankful for our house.  It's become more and more like home everyday.  And while we're still working incredibly hard to make it "ours", Eliot and I are so blessed to have a roof over our heads, and something that we can call our own.

I'm thankful for both of our jobs.  Eliot and I both enjoy our jobs, love going to work and I'm so thankful for that!  I'm also thankful for my Key to the World travel agent job.  I love being able to help others plan their vacations.

I'm thankful for our side businesses.  Eliot and I have worked hard with both Happily Ever Hatter and Snowblade Creations.  And we're only getting started.  I have another business that I'm hoping to launch in the next few months, and I still have quite a bit up my sleeve.  I'm so thankful for all of our creative ideas!

I'm thankful for our friends and family.  This has been an incredibly busy year and we've barely seen our friends.  But that only make me more thankful for the time we do have together.  I'm thankful for my KTTW friends and for lots of laughter.  I'm so incredibly thankful for our family.  They truly are our rocks and I cherish every single moment we spend with them.

And it may sound cliché, but I'm thankful for our health and happiness.  Eliot and I have both decided that we need to take better care of ourselves.  We're both doing the Princess and Tinker Bell Half Marathons in early 2017, so hopefully that will help on our journey to even better health!

Of course, I'm always thankful for Disney!  I'm so glad I followed my whim and started this blog.  I love interacting with other Disney fans!  I've also made Disney friends through other social media outlets.  I love to find people who also share a love for Disney and the sense of community we create.

Finally, I'm incredibly thankful for my positive outlook on life.  Sometimes, it's easy to get sucked into the negativity, sadness and anger, but I've got a lot of wonderful people and things in my life.  We definitely live in an uncertain time, but I'm looking forward to new beginnings, and to making all aspects of my life even better in 2017!  °o°
