fresh start

I've said it before, but Thanksgiving is hands down, my favorite holiday. There's something about Thanksgiving that beats Christmas for me (I know, I know, everyone is probably gasping in shock), but Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time. Christmas has become so overrun with the decorations (don't get me wrong - I love good Christmas decorations, and our house will be decked in festivities) and gifts that it seems that it's become a time of greed instead of what Christmas was truly intended for.

That said, Thanksgiving is such a blessed time of thanks. Everyone is so appreciative of the time being spent together. Love just overflows throughout Thanksgiving, and what is better than that?

So Thanksgiving, thanks for existing, you make my November every year!

I am starting my "New Year's Resolutions" early this year! As in, tomorrow. Want to know what they are?

1. No more sodas. I used to be really good about never drinking sodas, but lately, I have been having the "occasional" soda, which has become much more normal than occasional.

2. Be healthier. I mean this fairly broadly... Fine tuning workouts, tweaking diets, wearing sunscreen more often, etc.

3. Spend more time with God. I want to start doing daily devotionals again, which I haven't done in quite some time. I'm looking forward to furthering my personal relationship with Him.

Those are my three main ones. I also want to spend more time with the people that matter most to me and spend more time with family (though really, Sean and I are pretty good at spending time with both of our families. Love you guys!)

Tomorrow it's going to be time to take down the Thanksgiving decorations, because on Wednesday we move into December, my official starting point for Christmas decorations! I'm excited to have a house to decorate for this year, last year Sean and I had JUST closed on our house right before Thanksgiving and everything was far too chaotic to decorate. But this year is the year!

  1. I think those are great goals to have and you will over achieve them, you have some of the best will power and determination I know!

    Side note: I think I've seen you drink 1 soda ever, so this one should be a no brainier for you :)
