If you’re like us, you’re also having a hard time believing how fast this year has flown by. The past eleven months have been filled with amazing opportunities, along with laughs and joy from the wonderful people around us. And although it has also been a hard year for many, there are still so many things to be grateful for this year. With Thanksgiving this week, we feel it’s only right we take a moment to look back in order to appreciate and celebrate what we’re thankful for this holiday season.
This year I am thankful for new friends. I’ve met some of the most amazing people this year that have restored my faith in both friendships, and in humanity in-general. This is probably one of the weirdest years I’ve ever experienced in my lifetime, (from politics to big life moments), and the opportunity to laugh and cry over rosé and pizza is the most rewarding gift. Tell people you love them, make time for those who need you, and never take any moment for granted! -- Shaq
This year, I get to celebrate the holiday season as a new family of three and I’m so, so thankful for that.
