Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 1 - November 1

Today is November 1, one of my top 5 days of the year. This year, I decided I'm going to celebrate Thanksgiving by having THIRTY DAYS OF THANKS. Each day I'm going to write about something I'm thankful for. If you'd like to join me, please do. Tell me what you're thankful for in the comments.

Let's make this the most thankful Thanksgiving month ever.

DAY 1 - I'm thankful for November.

Why? Because Halloween (my least favorite day of the year) is over. We're usually not buried in snow, traces of Autumn remain and most days you can get away with a jacket or cardigan.

I'm thankful for November because it's the month of my wedding anniversary, so every year during November, I get to focus on what a blessing it is to be married to my husband. We get to celebrate the beginning of our family. I get to remember that freezing, sunny day.

It's also the month my parents were married, so we remember the beginning of the family I was born into and I get to think about that picture of my tall dad and my short mom standing in front of the Logan temple.

I'm thankful for November because it's the beginning of the holiday season--Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. It's like great holiday overload. A celebration of thankfulness, family traditions, the Savior's birth and new beginnings.

Yay for November!
