The holidays are here and it is no secret it is my absolute favorite time of year! From the temperature dropping, leaves changing colors, Christmas decorations going up, holiday movie marathons, I become joyful. The older I become, the more I continue to fall in love with the holidays. Lets hope I continue feeling this way once I have kids of my own right?? (Not any time soon!!) Any who, besides the joyfulness, I also start to be more grateful. A whole new year is approaching and I can't help but to reminisce and reflect on what this year brought. With the spirit of Thanksgiving coming up, here are 5 things I am grateful for.

1. My family.
I'm so lucky to have such a strong support system. My parents, boyfriend, siblings and dogs make life easier.

2. My health.
I treat my body well by nourishing it with healthy food, plenty of sleep and excercise. I have a strong body and mind.

3. A warm home.
We don't realize how good we have it until we educate ourselves on the living conditions of others. Heaters in this cold don't exist to others.

4. The small and free pleasures of life.
A sunrise, a walk in the park, trees with their vibrant colored leaves.

5. I am alive.
People don't realize how quickly this can be taken from us. I get to see another day and hopefully many more to come.

What are you grateful for?
