Today is the one day where everyone uses "thankful" and everyone suddenly remembers how important it is to be thankful! I half love this day, but I half do not like this day because I, obviously, see the importance of being thankful all 364 other days of the year. Nonetheless, I do love thanksgiving. The food. The family. The naps. The friends. The Black Friday shopping. The joy. The thankful hearts. Such a great day!
I love it so much that I woke up at 5 a.m. and I'm still thankful!
As a mentioned earlier this week, Stuttgart is the duck and rice capitol of the world, therefore everyone and their mothers are hunting this week! Huge thanks to Mr. George for taking my brother and I hunting this morning along with the rest of the crew. I had a blast! I have been hunting, but I in no way compare to most other true hunters around here. It has been a couple of years, so I'm super thankful I got to go with the fam early this morning. Usually it is so cold, but all day it has been pretty warm meaning this morning it was a very doable hunting temperature. Thanks again for the super fun experience to start thanksgiving!
Like many of you, I spent the rest of the day with my family. JanJan and several others came together to put on yet another fantastic feast. I mean I am still stuffed.
A nap was necessary and Black Friday shopping was entertaining!
All in all I have a mountain of things to be thankful. That comes easy for me though I just really appreciate how others were thankful today. The amount of times I saw "thankful" today was CRAZY. Makes me happy! Makes me feel like I am doing the best I can!
I hope you all had a great day with whoever you spent this holiday with. Thanksgiving is such a special day for me because I often feel like I am doing my job. But with that being said please remember that you can be thankful as often as you want. I know it makes a huge difference just by seeing that in my life and I promise it will do the same for you! Being Southern and Thankful is a very important job.

I am loving being home and loving everything about thanksgiving. I am reminded everyday just how much I have to be thankful for, but my hope is that now you can do the same! I hope you all had a very #southernandthankful Thanksgiving. My life wouldn't be the same without. I am thankful for you!
Until the next thanksgiving where thankful is overused and turkeys are not turkeys... Of how much I cherish this day! Happy Thanksgiving friends, family, and followers!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
