Update + Thanksgiving

Hello world

I apologize for not updating here for a while. I've been so busy with a new job and school but I promise I'll update in a regular basis from now on :) ... Let me tell you I'm really enjoying my job! This is the first time I feel happy to go to work because the people there are amazing :) I'm enjoying this season since it's not too cold like other years, life is good in general! :D

We had Thanksgiving with my family and it was great and fun! I love spending time with my family so much! We are a really small family but we still want to have a little feast ;

Our Thanksgiving Feast!
We cooked the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, my mom did the Turkey and I was in charged of everything else!

I had to take a selfie showing all my hard work lol

I prepared the following side dishes from scratch:
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Stuffing
  • Caramel yams
  • Green bean casserole
I like to cook side dishes I think it's kind of relaxing since they are quite simple to do and I don't want my mom to be overwhelmed with so many things to do for this holiday.

Thanksgiving is a great holiday to make you think about life and that even though you have tough times there are some things that you can be thankful for. Here are some of the things that I'm grateful for:

• My family: my mom, my dad, my brother, my King Rusty, my extended family 
• My boyfriend who is my family as well :)
• My friends
• My job that is just awesome!

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? What are you thankful for?

Have a wonderful day!!
