Thanksgiving 2017 | Gratitude

As I said at this time last year, there's barely a month left before we'll be welcoming a new year. 2081, where'd you come from? 

This year, like every year (and every day), I am grateful for so many things. Not the least of which are the following people, and to make so much about life and this community - even silly moments, memorable.

Family | To my family I am beyond grateful to have you in my life. No matter our frustrations, at the end of the day, you mean so much to me. Without you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you for putting up with me, and letting me chase aspirations that only make sense to me.

Christmas TV Films | Thanks for being adorable, awesome and a constant source of endless smiles.

Books | Of course, this is an obvious thanks, but all credit is really due to the authors. It's that one idea that sparks everything else.

Readers and Friends (aka this book community!) | No list would be complete without thanks to you all. To you, the readers and friends, thank you. I’m grateful to you if you’re reading this. If you’re a new visitor and reader, welcome. I hope you enjoy your time here. 

If you’ve been with Finding Wonderland for longer, thank you. You have no idea how much your support helps inspire this blog’s existence.
Wishing all of my readers and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope it’s full of family and laughter, a slice of pie, and memory making. Enjoy the day, and Happy Thanksgiving 2017!

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  2. I didn't even think to include Christmas films on my list, but I have to say, Count-down to Christmas is definitely improving my mood. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you, Sam - I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving. Those Christmas movies never cease to make me smile. They're so festive. :)

  3. This is such a wonderful post! With the cold weather coming in, Christmas movies are great at this time of year (even if December isn't here yet, haha). I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!
