A Brief Reflection on Being Thankful

A Brief Reflection on Being Thankful


Hi everyone,

It's been a few weeks since my last post so I think we're due for a little catch-up. I'm currently working my first busy season just a month after starting my full-time job, so my days have been pretty hectic and my stress levels are through the roof. On the bright side, my fiance and I finally moved into our first apartment together. And let me tell you, I've been to Ikea more times in the past month than I've ever been in my entire life. Nonetheless, we've had a blast furnishing our apartment into an Ikea showroom.


I guess this Thanksgiving, I have a lot to be grateful for.

I'm grateful for my fiance for being the house-husband, handyman, & all-around support system in my life (& even learning how to cook).

I'm grateful for my family for loving me unconditionally and giving great pep talks. 

& Lastly, I'm grateful for this amazing beauty blogger community. Thank you all for being so supportive of my photography and The Opal Gray. Although my blog still has a long way to go, I've never imagined that it would actually get to where it is today.

So thank you all. 


Until next time, Megan.
