Giving Thanks | Emily Hixon Photography- Pittsburgh Photographer

It is that special time of year once again. A time when family and friends are near, laughter fills the air and love fills our hearts. The holidays are always a wonderful reminder of what is truly important in life. If you have the privilege to spend today eating a beautiful meal with those people who mean the most, count your blessings. We often forget just how fortunate we are to have the chance to give thanks for all that we have today and every day.

Not only am I thankful for being able to live in this country with all of these great modern day conveniences, I am thankful for many things. Today and all other days of the year, I am thankful for my family and husband-to-be, Scott. Without their love and support, I would not be where I am in my life.

I am also thankful for my dog and little buddy, Speck. He is fun, loving and full of life!

Although I am not thankful for having type 1 diabetes, I am thankful for the available treatment that keeps me alive every single day! My insulin pump is my lifesaver.

Finally, I am thankful for being able to do what I love and love what I do! My biggest thanks goes out to all of YOU who make this dream a reality. Thank you!! As part of my appreciation, I would like to offer a giveaway to celebrate the holiday and to celebrate reaching over 500 fans on my Facebook page!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I am off to spend time with my family and eat delicious food like this yummy apple pie homemade by my sister, Natalie! She makes everything from scratch and is taking orders for Christmas 😉

(Heads up! I am offering a Black Friday sale starting today – click here for details!)
