2 Thoughts to Kick Off the Holiday Season

The Holiday Season is upon us! 

Have you been scouring websites looking for fun new recipes to try for the holidays?

I have. And it's been so. much. fun.

It's not like my mom doesn't have hundreds of delicious recipes from our family collection, but sometimes it's fun to try out new things and put a different spin on some old favorites. I've been faithfully checking websites like The Food Network, FoodBuzz, Food Gawker, and more almost daily, and I've compiled a ridiculously long list of "must try" recipes.

Aside from all of the great food that we get to make (and then eat!), we must not forget the reason we celebrate. With the official kick-off to the holiday season here in the U.S. coming in just a few days with Thanksgiving, I thought I'd share with you some quotes that make for a *happy* holiday. Of course, we should not reserve our gratitude solely for this day or any other holiday - we should acknowledge it everyday - but it is nice to have a special reservation for our most appreciated moments in life.

Here are 2 thoughts to kick off the holiday season:

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.  ~Meister Eckhart 

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

I wish you, your friends, and family a wonderful holiday!

Keep Smiling,
