It’s the perfect time of year to stop and take a minute to count your many blessings. We gathered some friends together for a gratitude blog hop because we wanted to let our families know just how much we love and appreciate them. Check out my Printable Thanksgiving Quotes and then visit my friends to see what they created with the “Gratitude” theme. There are recipes, printables and family traditions included in this blog hop.
When I was trying to figure out what to share, I looked up some quotes for inspiration. And I just couldn’t help but create some printables. Surprise, surprise.
Download these gratitude quote printables and hang them up in your home just in time for Thanksgiving! For personal use only. Thanks.

A big, huge thank you to our families for their support and love. They are our guinea pigs, models, help us when we have last minute deadlines, don’t blink when we wear yoga pants for two days in a row and stick through the good, the bad and the ugly. We are so grateful for you.
Look at all these pretty faces! So much love in this collage:

We thought you might have fun getting to know a little bit more about our families too. So we asked them some questions. Here’s what they had to say:
(if you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably used to seeing these faces over and over again :)
Funniest, smartest guy I know. We’ve been married for 15 years and he still is the only person who can make laugh when I’m really angry. He’s going to law school while working full time still, coaching baseball for our youngest, teaches the 10 year olds at church and is a “legal administrator.” Josh loves sports more than anyone I’ve ever met – with a slight obsession for the LA Dodgers and Pittsburgh Steelers. He also hates to admit it but is the most romantic guy (a big teddy bear with a heart of gold) and is constantly pulling off the best surprises.
How did you two meet?
It was love at first site. She was standing in the doorway to my future of bliss.
Note: I really was standing in the doorway when we met- he came to meet his roommate’s girlfriend, who happened to be my roommate.
And what do you love most about your wife?
How much time do you think your wife spends on her blog per week?
Oh. 200 hours. Slight exaggeration.
What is your favorite project/recipe she’s made?
Good answer Josh.
Independence and creative license.
And least favorite thing about blogging?
Interruptions. She hates when she has to do anything else other than that.Most favorite?
Her sense of empowerment.
I became a mom at the ripe old age of 22 years old. I feel like I have sort of grown up with my kids. Jonathan is almost 14- he loves music, movies, swimming, the trampoline, 4 wheeling, camping, hiking, ANYTHING outdoors related. He was diagnosed with autism (read more about the A word) at the age of 2 and works harder than anyone I have ever met times ten. My biggest hope for him is that he knows just how much he is loved. Julia is amost 12- she loves music, food, anything related to England (especially One Direction), playing the piano, her mini iPad, talking with friends and is a creative, girly girl. She is figuring out who she wants to be and is a typical “tween.” I am proud of her confidence and determination. Jules’ teachers have always said how kind and awesome she is. (I just wish I could get her to calm down her 11 yr old sass at home!) Andrew is 7 1/2 years old, our caboose- LOVES baseball (more than anyone I’ve ever ever met, can tell a pro player from behind by their stance) and luckily shines on his travel and all star team, also loves reading, and baking. He’s hilarious, smart, kind, and compassionate. At a recent parent teacher conference his teacher said “If I had a boy I would want him to be just.like. Andrew!” Proudest mom moment!
I asked Julia & Andrew to answer these questions since JJ has limited communication.
What are your favorite holiday traditions as a family?
Julia: Christmas Eve – how everyone performs something.
Drew: When we go to Grammy & Papa’s house on Thanksgiving
Julia: That’s a tough one. Because there are lots of ones I really like. You’ve done so many good ones, I don’t have a favorite. (BROWNIE POINTS FOR JULIA!)
Do you have any family favorite- games, movies, activities, hobbies?
Julia: Frisbee golf
Drew: Family Home Evening
Are you tired of taking pictures for Mom’s blog? :)
Just a note of thanks to you for visiting 30days, for your sweet comments, sharing the posts that I create and for you support. You are appreciated!
I’d love to hear about your family and why you’re grateful for them! Leave a comment below so I can get to know you a little better.
I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure
of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got
an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you
could space it out better?

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
out pretty quick.I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
