Thanksgiving brings you together with family and friends (whether you like it or not!). It’s a day where we focus on being grateful for what we have, for the richness that fills our lives. A day of feeling warm (with meat sweats?), cared for, well-fed, and loved. It is a day spent with a happy heart, good food at a big dinner table and full stomachs.

Are you Looking for Turkey Day Captions and Puns?

I honestly feel thankful just for the opportunity to take a one day to be thankful, if that makes sense. There are so many ways to say Happy Thanksgiving. Life moves at light speed, with obstacles popping up all over. Having a few hours set aside each year to just slow down, appreciate what you’ve been blessed with, and celebrate that with your loved ones is precious in it’s own cute little way.

There is so much to say about how a thankful heart and a grateful heart make you feel on Thanksgiving Day. Gratitude is empowering! One important thing to remember on Thanksgiving is to give thank you to your dinner host or even bring a lovely homemade pumpkin succulent centerpiece, which is often forgotten.


But enough about the ooey-gooey feelings…let’s get to the gravy. The turkey. The potatoes. The plating. All the apple pie. The way the cranberry sauce mixes so perfectly with everything else on the plate, in spite of the fact that it’s still shaped like the can it came out of. There is so much food! A happy Thanksgiving has plenty of room to be visually beautiful, too. Just don’t forget the stretchy pants aka Thanksgiving pants!
