We got the best news ever yesterday! My boyfriend and I will officially be going home for the holidays this year. We’ll be staying at my parent’s house for Christmas in the suburbs of Atlanta, where all my family gathers every year to celebrate. My brother and his girlfriend will be there, along with my grandparents, my brother and sister-in-law, and my niece & nephew. I’m so overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness right now! This quote definitely got it right, autumn is full of the loveliest smiles.
To be honest, I’m so exhausted right now that it’s taking all of my effort just to type this. But in the midst of everything going on in the world right now, my heart is full. I just feel filled to the brim with thankfulness, gratitude, love, and happiness. I just got back from a wedding, which helped really to put life into perspective from me. This is a month to be especially grateful for what we have, the loved ones in our lives, and the little blessings that pop up every day.
This quote by Winnie the Pooh really put a smile on my face today! It’s so true that the smallest things really do matter. For me, something as simple as my boyfriend tickling me or sending me a funny meme when he knows I’ve had a tough day warms my heart. He knows how to make me laugh, how to make me smile, how to make my day just a little bit brighter. I am so happy to have found someone to share all the small joys of life with.
