With Thanksgiving tomorrow, we each have a lot to be thankful for during this holiday season. I’ve always loved Thanksgiving, and the tradition of speaking your thanks out loud to remind you of all the good you have in your life.
I am grateful for my teammate. This year has brought about a lot of happiness. It has also brought about change, some changes tougher than others. Even on the toughest of days, I find great solace knowing that I don’t have to go it alone. I am so thankful for a husband who makes life, aka our “vacation,” way too much fun.
I am grateful for my support system which manifests itself through my family and my Chicago friends who I like to call “our fr-amily.” I am grateful that my husband and I have so many people who are there for us time and time again. I am thankful for special visits from my parents and brother, weekend in NYC, dates with my pseudo nephew and annual trips to Florida (and beyond!) with the best of friends.
I am grateful for the good health of those I love.
I am grateful for the brave men and women who are in the armed forces and keep us safe. I’m fortunate I get to call my brother one of them.
I am grateful for the parties I got to plan, the dinners I attended, the GNOs (girls night out) I survived.
I am grateful for the frivolous things; for Instagram and the Nordstrom’s shopping app; for popcorn and frozen yogurt with rainbow sprinkles; for champagne and martinis
Last year I was part of an icebreaker session where we were asked what our dream job would be. Most people said beach bum or heiress, and I answered “wedding planner.” A little over a year later, here I am. I am grateful that I’ve been given the chance to do what I loveand have so much fun while doing it because of my incredibly smart and talented colleagues. I am grateful for A & E!
Things I am thankful for…
Healthy and Happy family and friends…
It is amazing to have a year with few hardships and lots of love and laughter. I am so thankful to have so many loved ones around me all the time.
An amazing team – La Belle Fleur Events…
I thought it would be impossible to find the perfect job for myself, but I cannot imagine “working” anywhere else. Having a work family that cares about each other’s well-being, works hard, and can laugh together is irreplaceable.
A country that cares…
I am grateful for a country with people who care so much about others. There seems to be a lot of hate with just a simple glance at social media, but there is also so much love. I’m always looking on the bright side and there is so much good in the media, you just have to dig a little deeper!
A lovely life…
All of the silly things in my life that give me happiness everyday. The ability to workout, to get my nails done, decorate my home, and grab an afternoon coffee are just a few things that I am grateful to be able to do.
I am thankful for my other half. We’ve had a fantastic year filled with game nights, Netflix dates and lots of pizza! I couldn’t imagine going through life without my guy.
I am thankful that I traveled to so many wonderful places this year. From hiking at Mt. St. Helen’s, to a girls’ trip to MI, to visiting DC, to a spa vacation in Kohler, WI, it’s been a year of exploring and I am very grateful for the ability to travel.
We say this all the time, but we really have the best clients. We are so thankful they trust us to make their wedding dreams a reality. We’re grateful so many of them become our friends, and we are so thankful we can share such a special day with them.
