Happy Thanksgiving from London!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Wishing all my American friends a lovely day filled with great food, great drinks and even better company. This is my first year celebrating Thanksgiving in London, which does feel a bit strange but we will be cooking, watching NFL and enjoying the day with my other family. I like to take Thanksgiving as an opportunity to reflect on the past year and there truly is so much to be thankful for.

I am incredibly thankful that my mom and sisters flew out to visit me earlier this year for my birthday – it was a real highlight and those memories I’ll hold on to forever. I’m even more thankful that my older sister got to visit twice and was here last weekend!


familyI am thankful to my future in-laws, who are the best I could ever have. They are always so supportive to Ciaran and I. It means a lot to me that they wanted to get so involved in Thanksgiving today.


I am very thankful to have some great friends out here – the past two years of living here have been a whirlwind and I feel really fortunate to have such wonderful friends to laugh and have a great time with.


I am thankful to live in this amazing and inspiring city – there are so many opportunities here and I still have those “pinch me” moments.


I am thankful for my job – I am loving what I am doing and learning so much. I feel very lucky to be surrounded by super supportive people to learn and grow from.

And finally, I am thankful for my wonderful and loving fiancé Ciaran for always being supportive, thoughtful and kind.  I am very excited for our wedding next year and for what is to come! I am so happy to have the best life partner.


I am thankful for lots this Thanksgiving and really excited to be spending it here in London. We have just finished our Thanksgiving shopping and are going to see a film and then come back here, start cooking and drinking.

What are you most thankful for this year?
