During one of my typical (usually daily) pinning sessions on Pinterest, I came across this quote in the picture above. It really got me thinking, and on this chilly Thanksgiving morning, I figured I would share with you all what I am most thankful for. I’m sure I could literally go on forever if I wanted to, but I’ll try and keep it as concise as possible. Hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with turkey, loved ones, and full bellies.
