thankful

Hi my lovely bloggers! How was your very happy happy Thanksgiving day? I hope it was filled with lots of love and yummy food :~) I know a post on this blog was probably long overdue, but I was busy working on the blog and it's whole new look! What do you guys think of it? Would love your feedback!

Today, I woke up early in the morning and my mom, cousin, and I went to a church down in Tustin and volunteered to package meals for the less fortunate! I've never done anything like that, and I must say that the experience was great. I was surrounded by a few friends in Key Club from school as well. Doing this made me feel even more thankful and happy to help people. After volunteering, I stopped by my uncle's house to visit him and took a nap there as well. It was very well needed hehe... We went to go pick up food for dinner later on and when we finally got home, I had to do some of my APUSH project (I know... what a wild life I live on a Thanksgiving day...). It wasn't until around 7:30 pm when my family started to arrive, and now here I am recapping my day!

There are so many things in life that I'm so blessed with/ thankful for, but these are just a few that I can name  on the top of head right now (brace yourself for the high-quality iPhone pictures..):

I'm thankful for what all of nature has to offer. 


 I'm thankful for being able to live in a community where there is so much opportunity. 


 I'm thankful for everything that my parents have sacrificed in order for my brother and I to live a good life. 


 I'm thankful for our brave soldiers who sacrifice their lives everyday to protect us. 


 I'm thankful for a world filled with art and music.


 Even though I complain about it sometimes (maybe all the time), I am thankful for having the opportunity to have an education. 


 I'm also thankful for the very few teachers I've had in the past who have actually taught me life-lessons and helped shape me into the person I am today.


 I'm beyond beyond thankful to have such a great support-system from my friends and family. They keep me pushing in all aspects of life, and I would honestly be lost without them. 
(Hence, most of the pictures in this post are of them...) 



Last, but certainly not least, I'm thankful to be able to share my life with you through this diary/inspo/style blog.


To me, I think today is a day that you should forget all about your worries and desires and just be thankful and grateful for what you do have because there are people who are less fortunate and don't have the same blessings that you have.  I think we should be thankful everyday, really. So I guess today is a day to remind yourself to acknowledge it, am I right? I also believe that family is top priority, so on holidays like this, I could only think about spending as much time as I can with them. Friends come and go, but I know my family will always be here for me, and hopefully, yours for you as well. 

I'm wondering, what or who are you guys thankful for? Would love to know! I hope you guys had a wonderful day/evening and don't forget to be thankful everyday! I just want to say I'm thankful for you lovely readers and happy blogging! Xo, Vanessa.
