Counting my blessings :)

     
      Sorry if it took a while before I posted this. We've been busy lately specially with the holiday season just around the corner but better late than never right? Anyway, I just wanna share my Thanksgiving moment with my husband, in-laws, and friends. And by the way, I drove all the way there on a Wednesday which I would say, is my first experience on a 1-hour drive in the highway ( I'm still on a learner's permit though). Thank God for keeping us safe!


     This turkey was made by my hubby last Saturday so that we can have our very own little post-Thanksgiving dinner. I wasn't able to take a picture of the turkey on the Thanksgiving dinner so I took a shot of this one instead. I'm supposed to be the designated photographer of that day but unfortunately I've been slacking. Not even a group shot of the family on that day :( I'm blaming it on the turkey and my full belly LOL :D

     Can't believe how time flies so fast! The memories of last year's Thanksgiving is still fresh on my mind and its been a year now. But it's not the days that pass that make every year memorable, it's what you do that make each day of your life count. Words can't express how thankful I am to GOD for blessing me with a wonderful husband, a precious dog, a loving family, and a circle of good friends. No matter the ups and downs, I still find that life is worthwhile. Thank you God for another year, and more years to come in my blissfully content life ♥
