Happy Sunday beautiful people!
What a week. I swear I say this every week, but every new week seems to surprise me, enlighten me and leave me feeling both tired and full of energy. I know those two completely contradict each other but it's true. That only way I can describe it is in the sense that my body and mind are tired from a busy week but I feel like bunch of light and energy inside of me. This energy is excited and feeling giddy about what will happen next week and the week after that and so on. Life is beautiful and confusing and amazing and unexpected and so many things that oppose each other, but somehow it all still makes sense and works out. It's the same with this energy. Maybe I sound crazy to you, but if you even just semi understand what I'm saying, then you've felt this energy too!
Maybe this extra energy is coming from the absolutely amazing weekend I have had and maybe it's just that feeling in the air.
I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my family and surprised them with it when they came to visit on Friday. I realise that Thanksgiving was Thursday, but Thursday just isn't possible for any of us, since it's not celebrated in Denmark and none of us have time off for it - so we couldn't have the dinner Thursday. This year we had just decided to not do it because it just didn't seem like a possibility logistically, but semi-last minute I decided to try and do it on my own. I love Thanksgiving and the concept behind it and it's meaning. It's one of those traditions that I want to carry on for the rest of my life.
I'm truly just so excited that everything turned out perfectly and tasted great! Far from what I expected and my families reaction made it worth all of the hours spent on trying to get everything together. A little cliché but there is genuinely nothing better than making your family happy - or anyone else for that matter. Being together and being happy is all that really matters in the big picture right?
Probably is why I'm feeling so full of energy this Sunday. I'm just so grateful for my family and all of the beautiful people in my life.
That's just some thoughts I'll leave you with today, along with the Happy 5 for the week.
