Hey y'all!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all are excited to spend time with family, eat amazing food, and think about all the things you are blessed with in life! I thought in honor of Thanksgiving, I would share ten things I am grateful for. 

Ten Things I am Thankful For:
1. Travel. This year, I feel like I have had a lot of opportunities to explore and visit new places, which I am so grateful for! I love getting to visit new places and try new things. I think it fosters so much creativity, inspiration, and gratitude so I am always glad when I get this opportunity. 
2. My fiance, Nate! He is so supportive, uplifting, kind, and is one of the most genuinely nice human beings I know. He definitely balances out my sass so I couldn't be more thankful for him in my life. 
3. A faithful God. This year has had some bumps in the road that were definitely unplanned, unexpected, and certainly not what I would have planned for myself. However, I am so thankful I serve a God who is greater than all the bumps in the road that we face. Its definitely hard for me sometimes to remember that it will all work out, but I'm so glad God always has my situations under control.
4. Being able to run! I love running and I'm so glad I can do that. Not only is it a good workout, but I love how great of a stress reliever it is. I can't imagine not having the ability to do it.
5. My besties Shelby and Carol for always being supportive, kind, and fun! Thinking about how we are all headed in different directions after graduation makes me so sad so I am definitely cherishing the time that we have left together!
6. Coffee. While a lot of the things on my list are deep/emotional, I think its also important to be thankful for little things...right?! I am a firm believer in finding joy in the everyday and when I think about something that makes me happy each day, its my morning cup of coffee (or two!) I have been trying to go to Starbucks less (I think I've been only a handful of times the past couple months!) And I just love relaxing at home with a good cup of coffee :)
7. All the fun that has come with wedding planning this year. I am so grateful for the experience, the support from Nate + I's families, and all the people who have shown us love throughout the process! It has been so fun, and even through the stress it has been an experience I am sooo grateful for. 
8. My family -- my siblings, parents, cousins, grandparents...everyone! I consider my family my best friends and they are hands down the most important people in my life.
9. My blog. I am really truly grateful to have this platform to share all the things I love in life from fashion, lifestyle, healthy living, my faith, and all things in between! I am so grateful for all the people that support me, read my blog, and all the opportunities that have come from this! It is truly one of the things that brings me the most joy in life and I looove getting to sit down and just create content for it. 
10. Dogs. I love all my dogs so much and I am so grateful to have them because lets be real dogs just get us!!! My dogs at my parent's house, Sage and Remi, and also Nate and I's dog, Scout, are just the best and I love them soooo much!

As for the look in today's post -- I am actually looving this whole look. I love wearing whites/neutrals/light colors in the winter. I think its a great contrast between the blacks and dark colors we tend to gravitate towards this time of year! So many of the items I am wearing are currently on sale for pre-Black Friday so I had to share these amazing finds! First off, my sweater is under $21 (although I sized up two sizes for a looser was more fitted in my true size!) Next, my jeans are my go-to white jeans. I wear them year round as I'm sure y'all have noticed! They are on sale for $24 which is a total steal. They are comfy + fit TTS! Lastly, my vest is also on sale from this retailer, and is also $24. It is from the kids' section but if you can wear an xs/s then the xxl will fit you!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and take time today to remember what you are thankful for! There are so many wonderful reasons to express gratitude each and every day!
