I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving this year! I just wanted to share some photos of my family and just chat with you. I feel like I get lost in all of the work sometimes and forget why I love blogging anyways. I love just being able to sit down and share with you whatever is on my mind. Today I am filled with the uttermost gratitude. This is my first Thanksgiving as a family of four, yes I am including my little pup Wrinkles! It is so fun to share the holiday season with Eleanor for the first time. She makes everything so much more magical.
2017 has not been the easiest year for me. I found out I was pregnant on Christmas of 2016 and then struggled throughout the rest of my pregnancy. I was so ill that every aspect of my life suffered severely and I became really depressed. It was so hard for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel but I kept pushing through, I mean, I really had no other choice. When Eleanor was born on the 29th of August, everything instantly shifted into perspective and I have never felt so at peace. Becoming a mom this year has fulfilled me in ways I never knew possible. I feel so grateful that my Father in heaven has trusted me and Brandon to be parents to the sweetest little angel. I strive every day to be the best mother and example that I can be. I want Eleanor to live the best life possible and I will work as hard as I can to make it all possible.
I am also so incredibly thankful for my health and the health of those I love! After being ill for a while, I will never take my health and the ability to do the things that I love for granted. I am thankful for my career and that I am able to work to help support my family. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves and watches over me and my family. I am grateful for all of you reading this post right now. Your love and support means so much to me. Thank you!
