Happy Thanksgiving!!

It's Thanksgiving morning! It is one of my favorite days of the year, I am watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade - one of my favorite holiday traditions, Mike is already busy cooking in the kitchen and it smells heavenly already!! Yesterday I made an apple pie and a pumpkin cheesecake (stay tuned for photos) and stuffed mushrooms so today I just kick back and enjoy the day. This year it will just be me and Mike for dinner and I'm actually looking forward to the relaxing dinner, going for a walk with my husband afterward, playing games and watching movies.

I'm also taking time today to remember all the things I'm thankful for. I'm thankful for my family and friends, who listen, who support
me, who encourage me and who love me unconditionally. I'm thankful for the fur babies who make me smile, laugh, who cuddle me and just make this apartment a home. I'm thankful for my health and for my continued motivation. I'm thankful for my amazing husband. I'm thankful that the Yankees won the world series, I'm thankful for how lucky we are to visit Disney all the time, I'm thankful for my scrapbooks and the stories I continue to tell through them. And though we aren't together today I'm thankful that I'm so close to my parents, sister and grandmother that we will talk so much today that it will be the next best thing to being together! I'm also thankful for those of you who read my little blog here, I appreciate you and enjoy sharing my life with you!

Now I don't know about everyone else but I am eagerly waiting for Santa to make his appearance in this parade so that we can officially kick off the holiday season. Now you see I gave my blog a little holiday decoration - thanks to House of 3 for releasing AMAZING holiday items!!! Tomorrow we will put up our decorations around the house and I will start listening to Christmas music (sorry Mike!) but I will admit, like so many people seem to be this year, I got into the spirit a little early this year. A couple of weeks ago we got a little blast of cold air here in Florida and after I picked Mike up from work we headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios for the Osbourne Family's Spectacle of Dancing Lights! It was so great getting there in time for the switch flipping ceremony and to be there when the crowds were still light. We plan on going again but at least we went one day where we could just take pictures and bundle up or you know wear hoodies haha!

Part of the reason we are planning to visit the Studios again is because this year I'm working on a project inspired by Ali Edwards December Daily album. You can read more about the project on Ali's blog here. I'm doing mine a little differently which Ali encourages us all to do instead of just doing the album from December 1st until December 25th I'm starting my documenting tomorrow and going through to January 1st! wish me luck! I have my foundation pages done so tomorrow I will just start taking pictures and documenting the spirit and activities of the season! I plan on blogging each day so I can share all my stories with all of you so I hope you will take the journey with me!!

Now it's time for me to get back to the parade, Santa will be arriving in just about an hour!! Hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving, take time to remember what you are thankful for and hug your loved ones!
