I can’t help but feel an extra dose of gratitude this week as Thanksgiving nears. It may be cliché, but I wanted to reflect on some things I’m thankful for as we head into the Thanksgiving weekend.

My wonderful, loving, supportive husband who always manages to put a smile on my face.


My adorable son who brings more joy into my life than I ever knew possible.


My supportive family who loves me no matter what.

My close friends, near and far, who are a constant source of love and support.

My job as a group fitness instructor. It brings me so much joy to help others work toward being healthier, fitter, and happier through exercise.


Our two pups who greet me with excitement every time I walk through the door.

My faith … because I don’t know where I would be without my relationship with Christ.

Good health as I’ve gone down a long road to get to a happy and healthy place.


This little blog and all of YOU…my wonderful, encouraging, and supportive readers. I can’t thank you enough for making this such an uplifting, positive place.

I’m signing off for the rest of the week to enjoy some extra quality time with my family. I hope those of you that are celebrating have a relaxing and delicious Thanksgiving holiday!
