Thanksgiving was last week. For my non-American readers, it’s a national holiday for us to reflect on what we are thankful for in life. Traditionally, we eat large amounts of turkey, mashed potatoes, and other dishes with family and friends. And it’s one of my favorite holidays for the end of the year.
This year is a bit different. For the first time in my life, I am geographically apart from my home, and was initially well outside my comfort zone. And because of that, I am consciously much more thankful for where I am in life. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to continue my education. I am thankful that I have met a very supportive friend group in my home away from home. I am thankful that I still have friends and family that I can rely on back in New York and across the country. And lastly, I am thankful for my opportunity to practice photography and work on this blog.
I’m still surprised that my small desire to get a DSLR last winter would lead me to where I am today with this blog. This has been a great creative outlet for me to share my experiences and images as I continue going through Who knows where this journey is going to lead me.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
