I absolutely love Thanksgiving because gratitude is a big part of my daily life. I usually have a pretty positive outlook, but like anyone I get into ruts or funks sometimes. Whenever I become aware of my not-so-great attitude, I turn it around by expressing appreciation for all that I do have. Using this tactic has genuinely changed my life. Even when things aren't going right, I have an endless list of things to be thankful for.
Right at the top of that list, I always put my family. I am so beyond blessed to have three little souls who are healthy that I get to spend every day with. They drive me nuts sometimes, of course! But I legitimately love being a mom and I couldn't imagine my life without them.
This past year I have also made a lot of connections within the Edmonton community, and that has been transformative for my personal growth. The YEG local business scene is so inspiring. I am so proud to be an Edmontonian, and I think because of the work people are doing today, my kids will want to stay here for the long term.
One of the connections I've made recently was with Jamie Cornish Photography. She took these photos of my family, and I will cherish them forever. Time is so fleeting. Make sure you capture it before it's too late!
On top of making connections with fellow business owners, I am so touched to have met so many amazing people who believe in my brand and who share it with their friends. Whether you make a purchase, shout me out on social media, or just tell people about me when you're hanging out at the playground, it means the world to me. I have so much appreciation for everyone who has lifted me up and I am doing my best to send that love right back out into the world!
