3 Things I am Thankful for | The Home Edition

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and you are having a wonderful weekend so far. I am planning on having a super productive Sunday and getting back on track with my blogging duties...oh how I have missed my little space on the internet. As I mentioned in my previous post the last few weeks have been a whirlwind for me with many highs and a few lows. I guess life is a serious of peaks and troughs, but it is all about how you embrace them and move forward. I know thanksgiving has passed and it is not something that is hugely celebrated in the UK, however, it is something that is growing in popularity here and I absolutely love that. So, after some reflection I thought I would share 3 homely things I am thankful for.

1. My Family 

This was a super easy one for me and without a doubt I am incredibly thankful for my Family. Firstly I am thankful for my parents, who have brought me up, taught me values, loved me, supported me and, of course, cared for me my entire life. I just couldn't imagine a life without them...they are a big inspiration to me. I was also blessed with a large family and they are all so supportive, caring and, of course, loving. I am an only child, but I was so lucky to have grown up with my Aunty, Uncle, 3 Cousins and Grandparents living in the same street as my parents and I...we are all in walking distance of each other and I wouldn't want to change a thing. I have incredible memories from growing up and we are constantly making new ones.

2. My Home

I am thankful that I can wake up every morning and have a warm roof over my head and also the fact that after a very long day at work I have a loving family and home to come back to. I am blessed with a wonderful bedroom where I love to seek refuge and shut myself off from the world, but I also have a beautiful blogging space / beauty office where I can be creative and pursue my blogging dreams and goals.

3. My Relaxing Weekends

I am thankful that I can take the occasional weekend off and just switch myself off from everything. Relaxing weekends vary but I am blessed with the fact that I can have endless cuddles with my Yorkie Bella (who is actually sitting on my lap whilst I am writing this post), I have functioning wifi so I can write content for my blog, I can watch typical Saturday night television with the family, order a takeaway, live in my pyjamas and whack the heating on full blast.

Like I mentioned before I have so much to be thankful for in my life...but at home I would say these are the three most important to me. Sometimes these simple everyday things are taken for granted so it was nice being able to have a little ramble to remind myself how truly blessed I am to have these wonderful things in my life. I hope you all enjoyed this simple yet sweet post showcasing some of the things I am thankful for. I would love for you to get involved also so don't forget to share your own...I can't wait to read them. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me via my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to ready every single comment...they really make my day!

What are you thankful for?
