OMG! We have entered the most wonderful time of the year. The weather is perfect, love is in the air, and this is the month that we give thanks. We get to revel in the beauty of nature’s paintbrush of colors. When we feel the first crisp breeze, we know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. Then we have the awesome opportunity to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
Time to reflect on all you’ve endured and be grateful for all that you have been blessed with. This is our time to give thanks, our time to be thankful!
As I reflect on the wedding process, I think of the couples that have the honor of exchanging their vows in front of family and friends and make their commitment to each other for a lifetime. I then think of the great lengths brides and grooms go to, to show their appreciation to their guests. Displaying gratitude in your wedding often reflects in your food selections, open bar, and favors.
Take a moment to reminisce on when you first met the love of your life. If you’re engaged to be married take time to reflect on all the things you love about your fiancé. The beauty of love is worth thinking about.
We may not have everything we want yet in most cases we are more blessed than 80% of the world. So, in the spirit of the season donate to a person less fortunate than you are or a charity. It is such a blessing to give and did you know there are benefits of giving.

is good for our health
