Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! I wrote a blog post on being grateful about a month ago, that is just as true today as it was when I wrote it. This post is one of the more difficult ones to write as I reflect on the word thankful. As I am at home surrounded by family and friends that I adore, I am overwhelmed by how thankful I am. The only noun that really describes this year is growth.

I am thankful for the opportunities that have came my way this year. Some I thought were not for me, but the people in my life knew better. I just needed a little encouragement from those closest to me to take on a new challenge.

I am thankful for friends. This year my friend group grew from 4 to 14! Moving to a new city is hard, and it took some time for me to find my place here. It is amazing how much more fun life is when you have friends by your side.

I am thankful for creativity. In a world full of boring black outfits and crunching numbers, I am thankful to have an outlet to express my creative side.

I am very thankful for you! Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your Thanksgiving to read my little blog. I hope Sprinkle of Glam becomes a happy place for you!

Each year my family goes around the table and expresses what we are thankful for, each year I struggle with what to say. This year is going to be exceptionally tough to express just one thing!

What are you thankful for this year?

Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

It is my favorite time of year, I love Thanksgiving. It is one of the only holidays where gifts are not exchanged. We actually take time to be with friends and family and just be thankful. With Thanksgiving only a week away, I have been researching table decor. My family always has Thanksgiving at our farm in Tennessee. The rustic setting makes the day even more special. Last year, I made these calligraphy “I am thankful” placemats for each place setting. My mom and I typically handle the decor and cooking for our family. This year I am loving these rich textures and whimsical plates!

Thanksgiving DIY Projects

My absolute favorite holiday, Thanksgiving is around the corner. I love it because it is a holiday where presents are not involved and we take the time to remember to be thankful. Here are a few DIY Thanksgiving projects that have been on my radar lately. We made the “thankful for” placemats last year, and all of our family loved it. This year I am loving the chalkboard pumpkin for the menu, such an easy DIY that will make a large impact.
