Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

I woke up Thanksgiving morning with my heart full.  I needed nothing more than the people who were suddenly in my bed that morning, my husband, Jaiden and Mila-Jade.

My husband’s family decided to visit from NY and Puerto Rico and I was super excited because last year we were completely alone, just the three of us and now we are FOUR! crazy huh?! I decided to host dinner at my house this time and I forced my Mother-In-Law to cook (LOL)  I’ve never cooked for so many people so I would have been a mess.  It was 8 of us and I invited 2 of my good friends over with their husband/boyfriend, so a total of 12!!! 12!!!! That’s the most my little apartment has ever seen! but I was super happy because my husband and I are always used to spending it with our huge families.

I was also happy because I finally had someone take some pictures of us! (instead of with a selfie stick! haha!)

Everything went smooth and I’d like to say everyone had a good time.  Being around family and friends always takes the ease off of me.  Brings a little bit of the Holiday vibes we were used to in NY.  How did you guys spend Thanksgiving? I hope it was great! Thanks for reading!
