Thanksgiving 2014!

Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving!  The majority of my family gathered at my mama's house for our annual bash.  Lots of food lots of people and lots of love.  It's so nice having a blog to post pictures of our gatherings, as it gives us a forever digital album of special moments for everyone to share.  In life you never know what is to come one day to the next, who will be here and who will be gone, and with these blog posts our treasured memories are grouped together to look back on and treasure for years to come.  Here are some snapshots of our blessed day together!

My holiday attire:
Scarf:  Walmart
Tank:  Target
Plaid Shirt:  Old Navy (flannel)
Jeans:  American Eagle
Leather Knee Boots:  Chinese Laundry
Watch:  Bulova
Bracelets:  Alex & Ani

(These pics were taken on my aunt's tablet.  Some of the pics turned out airbrushed looking without her doing any editing....I didn't complain, lol)

Kathy and Kenny!  (She has always thought he looked more like her than anyone else, haha!)

Granny and her baby boy Barry

Kathy and her wannabe boyfriend :-(

Most of the gang!  Kat was taking the picture...Sandi and her crew were all that was missing.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Muuuahhh!

Thankful This Thanksgiving 2015

Hey guys! The past couple of years on Thanksgiving I have done a blog post on things I am thankful for, including some special times in my life that have really stood out. I thought it only fitting that I re-post that blog post, updated at the end with some special moments we shared in 2015. Hope you all enjoy!!!! 

 Hi guys. So I'm sure most of you have seen those "30 Days of Thanks" tags going around on Facebook and so forth, and I have never taken part in that. I take the time to read everything my friends are thankful for daily, but I never take the time to list things of my own. That got me thinking. I have been blessed with a wonderful life, have made some wonderful memories, and have had the opportunity to share these experiences with some great people. I've been a lot of places and have been able to see a whole lot. Not only this month, but for today and always, I am thankful for this life. If it all ended today I could honestly say, it's been a good one. Granted, not every moment has been great. But, it wouldn't be living if that were the case. Life is all about the good with the bad. I thought I would take a moment to compile a list of photos of some memorable moments in my life. Not only to maybe give you more insight into my life, but also for me to have something to look back on and cherish. I hope each and every one of you find happiness in your lives, and may God bless you abundantly.
