Hi BB&Beautifuls, this is Cristina from Fuji Files! When Laura contacted me with her “I am Thankful For” proposal my mind was racing – I have far too many things to be thankful for to fit into this little post. But I certainly had a lot of fun trying!
1. I am Thankful For : Home!
I recently moved back to Texas after three years abroad, and although this move has meant leaving a wonderful job, friends, an expat lifestyle, and my happy little apartment – it is absolutely worth it to be back HOME with my family. That’s the one thing you just can’t replace! (Cue Michael Buble music now).
2. I am Thankful For: My Holiday survival kit
I’m thankful for this blazer, which I found at Zara but I believe looks MUCH more expensive. The gold sequined clutch is just screaming holidays! It’s Zara as well, perhaps this should have been called I am Thankful for Zara… because I am. The sunglasses with cat ears made the list just because they’re fun, and fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously!
3. I am Thankful For: Blogging
That’s right. I’m thankful for you beautiful people. Thanks to blogs there is just so much inspiration to be found out there, more than I could ever read in a lifetime. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn and connect and well, look at pretty pictures. I’m thankful for the friends who encouraged me to start my own blog which I’ve been writing for 2 years now. It surprises me daily that I still find so much to write about, and that people actually read it! I now face the exciting prospect of turning this hobby of mine into something of a career, and you’ve gotta be thankful for any chance to get paid doing what you would have otherwise done for free!
Thank you Laura for giving me the opportunity to reflect and be gracious, what a special series!
