Being Thankful

It is Thanksgiving here in the States and although it is important to always keep in mind what you are thankful for, today I gave it extra thought. Of course my list is actually longer but I would like to share some of them with you.

  •  My husband and children. They keep me exhausted, partially insane, and deliriously happy.
  • Oh sleep how I miss thee! I am thankful anytime I can get some extra zzzzz's
  •  Cinema. Thank you to the creators of Hollywood and all the films you made and make.
  • Books and more books. I am grateful to have eyes to read (and see) and the ability to enjoy (and consume) all the books I can get my hands on.
  • I love to write and as of the past three years, I love to blog. It feeds my brain and keeps me social as I tackle the everyday joys of being a housewife and mom.
  • I started taking photos with my first camera at twelve years old and have loved it ever since. I am grateful I was able to upgrade my camera (named Gidget) and take some extra fabulous photos of my family and for my blog.
  • I am thankful for the fashions of yesteryear. I love how so many outfits where pretty and even sometimes sexy but they were never too revealing. I also love how feminine everything was!
  • British TV, what would I do without you? Most of my favorite shows are BBC made and well, I just love the British and their writing styles. Their shows are always so well thought out and the story lines are never disappointing!
  •  I adore the community of vintage bloggers. What an exceptional community it is!
  • Last, but never ever least are the brave men and women of yesteryear and today who try their best to serve their countries and bring freedom and peace to this world.
What are you all thankful for?

  1. What a wonderful list, I'm with you on just about all of those and am thankful for all the people who thought to save things in the past so that we can still ooh and aww over them today! :) I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

  2. This is a great list! I am always thankful for my husband and my dogs. Im also thankful to live in the modern age, despite my love of vintage, where I have more choices about what I want to do with my life. Im thankful for blogging and the creative outlet it give me
