I think my favorite part of November is the focus on gratitude that we’re all encouraged to have. We’re reminded anywhere from decor (give thanks), to the social media challenges to share what we’re thankful for.

It’s been a long year and a half and I think it’s really easy to want to wipe it all away and start fresh at the new year. But I think it’s important to sit where we’re at (as low as that may be) and give thanks for even the most simple of things.

Today I am grateful for an additional driver in the family. We only have two cars so it’s taking some juggling, but I love that Hallie has a driver’s license and get herself to and from tennis. (Sophomores aren’t able to drive to school or else that would be amazing too!)
