I love Thanksgiving. It’s a chance to connect with the people you love, give thanks for your blessings, and eat some really amazing food!
I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude lately. It’s easy to be thankful when life is going well, and everything seems to be falling into place. It gets harder when things are challenging, but there is always something to be thankful for. In fact, I have recommitted myself to having an “attitude of gratitude” every single day. Even on my darkest, crappiest days there are blessings, and I want to honor them. With this spirit of gratitude in this season of blessings, I’d like to take a moment to give thanks for life’s wonderful gifts.
First and foremost, I am thankful for my husband, Mike. Not only is he a good, hardworking man who’s dedicated to his family, he is also my best friend and biggest cheerleader. I’ve been able to take great leaps of faith in my life because I know he is beside me no matter what.
I’m so thankful for my children. Ty and Maeve have filled my life with joy and laughter since the day they entered it, and now I’m getting to enjoy the outstanding adults they’ve become. I cherish our family and I’m thrilled that it has grown to include my lovely daughter in law, Syra. Not only is she my family she is an irreplaceable member of my team.
I’m incredibly grateful for my team. Syra and Cameron are my right-hand women, and they help me create amazing things for my clients. I couldn’t do this business without them. And this business is such a blessing. When I went out on my own years ago, I had no idea that it would turn into this huge, wonderful thing! I am so thankful for a career that allowed me to provide for my family while also being there for all the important moments. This business gives me the freedom and opportunity to enjoy the things I love- gourmet food, craft cocktails, fine wine, the beach, Harry Potter land (Universal Studios), time with family, time doing absolutely nothing and regular self-care.
Of course, none of that would be possible without the support of friends, family and my coach/mentor/guru, David Neagle, and his amazing team! I have been so lucky to have incredible guidance, advice, and encouragement every step of the way.
Finally, I am so incredibly thankful and grateful for my outstanding clients. Thank you for putting your faith in me and trusting me to take your business to new heights. It’s such an honor to be with you on this exciting journey, and I can’t wait to see what we accomplish next!
I wish every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life.
With thanks and gratitude,
