{31 Days of Playlists} Day 19…Thanks Is For Giving

{Beautiful plush pumpkin decor by Love Feast Table}

 I am counting down the days to Thanksgiving!  I marvel at a holiday that celebrates the harvest in all its forms — expressing my gratefulness to God, the abundance of good food and good love and the gift of community and family .  Whether I am in want or in plenty, I have always found ways to be thankful and celebrate this holiday, and this year is certainly no exception.  The Love of My Life and I will be packing some bags, and heading to the California beach for an untraditional, unconventional Thanksgiving family camping trip!  As my husband has never spent any real time in Cali, I am rejoicing that I get to show him the beauty of the Pacific whilst grilling, hiking, camping and exploring the coast.  I can’t wait to spend time with my sister and future brother-in-law, and languish happily in listening and long talks of her wedding planning.  I can’t wait to hug my stepmom, who has the biggest heart and love of life that inspires me everytime I see her.  I can’t wait to drive along the Pacific Coast Highway with the Love of My Life and delight in the spontaneity and joy of not planning where we are going next.

 May these songs bring you joy as you eat too much stuffing and green bean casserole, hug your son or daughter tight, fall asleep on the sofa to the sweet sounds of football, and remember and celebrate God’s gifts through gratitude…
