Turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie…oh my!  While daydreaming of the delicious Thanksgiving feast right around the corner, we rounded up what our Seattle Southside staff is most thankful for this holiday season.

“I am so lucky to have the best friends and family that love and support me. Thankfully I will be able to spend the holidays with most of them creating wonderful memories.”

Emily

“This year I have been blessed by new relationships, a memorable study abroad experience, and my wonderful family. I have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and have hope for great opportunities in the year to come.”

Katherine

“I am thankful both of my sons have amazing jobs, wonderful girlfriends and still live close enough to visit me often. I look forward to having a Thanksgiving weekend filled with good food, football, laughter and love.”

Kristina

“My loved ones will help me celebrate my birthday over Thanksgiving weekend and I am also thankful for my new iPhone.”

Meilee

“My parents are flying in from Michigan for a visit. I’m thankful we get to have some quality family time this Thanksgiving.”

Noelle

“I am thankful my healthy and happy family who will all be together to celebrate my son’s first birthday.”

Yukino

“What I am thankful for is the days in the USA. I came here in the end of March this year after terrible earthquakes in Japan. To study and live abroad has been one of my biggest dreams. I would like to say thank you to my dear parents who allowed me to go even though it was in panic at that time. And I would like to say thank you to all the people who I met here. Thank you for welcoming me with the warmth. Your smiles make me happy and encouraged."
