13 Things I Am Grateful for This Thanksgiving



13 Things I Am Grateful for This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is about gratitude, family and love. Here are all the things that I am grateful for this Thanksgiving. What is on your list?

Here are a few of my favorite things…that I am grateful for.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. That’s because it’s about gratitude and nothing more. We don’t have to buy gifts. There’s no pressure to outdo each other. No need for a mad rush to Macy’s (or if you’re like me – I love shopping online) because your cousin is driving down from Boston unexpectedly. And she’s bought you a gift!

No. Thanksgiving isn’t stressful at all. It is about family, love and enjoying a feast of turkey, chicken, pernil, morro de guandules, arroz blanco and then some.

What can I say? Latino Thanksgiving is not just about turkey.

So, you can imagine how excited I am to be home. I am in NYC as I type, preparing my hot Thanksgiving outfit (a black pleather skirt and a flowy, transparent, short-sleeve black top with a vegan-leather front panel). I can’t wait to be at my Tia Odilis’ apartment with my cousins, sister, mother, brother, sister-in-law, and of course, my niece, Nila. And we will dance. And drink. And be grateful.

So, without further ado (the turkey’s getting cold, y’all), here are thirteen things that I am grateful for this Thanksgiving.

All of Me

I have gone through quiet a journey this year and it's not over yet. There' s been changes to adjust to, some happy and some not so easy to embrace. But through it all I am still the best me that I can be. And for that I am grateful.

What are you grateful for this Thanksgiving? Share your thoughts!
