When I realized I was going to make my 3000th post on Instagram today, I thought it was cause to celebrate, and share my gratitude with everyone who has made the choice of joining the community I've been sharing.

I started my instagram account 7 years ago, July 2011, as we were driving from Texas to California for a family vacation. I first thought it was just a photo editing app, then someone told me I could SHARE the images with my friends and I could see their pictures also...I LOVE THIS! I'd already been family blogging for 5 years, and had my blogging "business" for a year at that point, so I pulled them all together on Instagram.

This episode, the day before Thanksgiving, is dedicated to gratitude...but in the hours before recording it, I felt grumpy, then I didn't want to talk about gratitude anymore. As I walked to dinner all sullen and somber, I told my family my quagmire, and my son Matthew pointed to the yellow sign behind me in our kitchen that says, "Whenever you get sad stop being sad and start being awesome."

So I thought I'd talk about my grumpy, that led to gratitude. I go into more detail on the below in this episode.
