Thanksgiving is next week and I’m not sure how it got here so fast. This year Thanksgiving is going to be a bit low key, read local. As much as I love hanging out with our extended family I was not feeling the long drive south this year. I know some folks dread spending time with their family and especially there in-laws. That is not my story, our families are a good time.

I’m not a cooker, I’m more of an eater. No surprise there, I can cook I just don’t enjoy it at all. I will contribute sweet potato pies, that is usually my thing and some wine. The new peach wine I’m in love with to be exact.
While I’m thrilled about eating all of the things I have to count my blessings. It is easy to dwell on what we want and need but don’t have. I’m trying to channel some good juju and celebrate the things I do have. We had epic hurricanes this year and I know the folks in Puerto Rico wished they had a home to have Thanksgiving in. I know the folks in the Caribbean are still trying to get some basic needs met. That isn’t my story so I’m thankful for running water, electricity and a solid roof over my head.
I got this mason jar from my Mom’s house because I will always shop her home like its the store. I’m thankful for her and that she always allows me to do so. At 38 I will legit grocery shop in her fridge like I don’t grocery shop myself. I created these cards in Canva, you can make your own or you can just cut up strips of paper. Each day try and write down something you are thankful for. It could be something big or simple as the cute guy that held the door open for you.
I will be sharing this easy DIY and others on Good Morning Washington this Friday, November 17th on News Channel 8 in the DC area. If you are outside of that market no worries, I always post the clip on YouTube and the MimiCuteLips page on FB.
