A little thanks.

Have I ever been this blessed? I’m not sure. When I sat down at our holiday table—surrounded by the family I love, the fire in the fireplace, my favorite meal in front of me—I felt such a gratefulness from the bottom of my soul that I stole the reins from Dad to give the annual Thanksgiving toast.


I don’t know what I said, but I’m sure it was something like “so blessed blah blah graduation! blah blah best family ever blah blah and for the first time in years and years I’m in love…” Everyone cheered and rolled their eyes. It was fantastic.


We had the usual meal and 10 bottles of wine, and then played this fantastic game brought to us by Buzzfeed that had us laughing so hard we started crying.

And now here we have December, slipping in quietly underneath the radar. My final two weeks of school begin, and I interview for my future job. (?!?!?!?!??!?!) Think of me Thursday as I attempt to answer clinical interview questions and impress HR and nursing directors!

I’m halfway done Christmas shopping, but am feeling past due on my holiday favorite Christmas movies, baked goods, and music. Did anyone listen to the Kelly Clarkson Christmas album? I’m a fan!

Here’s her song Wrapped in Red. Enjoy!

    That game looks SO fun and hilarious. I passed it along to my family to play at New Year’s Eve, which is our big game night! Also thanks for sharing Kelly Clarkson. I’m always on the lookout for new Christmas tunes 😉

      SO fun, you’ll love it. Drinking first helps with drawing, sentence making, and the laughing part…
