On this eve of Thanksgiving, I’d like to take a moment to be grateful for what I have, and encourage you to do the same, my beautiful reader!
After all, it’s easy to forget how lucky we are in life when caught up in the daily grind.

I am grateful for:
  • My home
  • Being able to visit my family in Spain last year
  • An amazing relationship with my parents and brother
  • A handsome, funny, and supportive partner
  • Having fantastic tutoring students that spread my name and give me referrals
  • Nutella 😉
  • Getting to experience all four beautiful seasons
  • The ability to live in a place as beautiful as Lake Arrowhead
  • My three furbabies: William Shakespurr, Robin Hood, and Dobby
  • Netflix <3
  • Neverending on-demand puppy and kitten cuddles
  • Living 45 seconds from the most fun off-roading roads I’ve ever been on 🙂
  • My overall health, despite migraines
  • The ability to call my grandmother long-distance whenever I wish (though I know I should phone more often)
  • My kickass new iPhone X and whatever new laptop I end up choosing by cyber Monday!
  • The ability to go back to school and continuously work on myself
  • Hot cocoa during these cold months
  • My cute new car and how much safer it is than my previous one


With migraine-related anxiety and depression, it’s sometimes easy for me to start throwing myself endless pity parties, so I like to stop sometimes and reflect on everything I am thankful for.
What are you grateful for today?
Let me know in the comments below!
With all my love,
