Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday–and only partially because it revolves around eating a delicious meal! I love the spirit and joy of the Christmas season, but there’s something about Thanksgiving, a holiday dedicated to feeling grateful, that I really enjoy. This has without a doubt been the most eventful, emotional, and at times most difficult year of my life on a personal level, so I’m really feeling like pausing and being grateful for all of the good in my life.

I wrote this a few seasons ago, and it still rings so true that I am sharing it again.
I am thankful that I have the opportunity to work with some of the finest musicians in the city, the state, and the whole Midwest.
I am thankful that I have been given the opportunity to help students make music, and to provide the wonderful tools to make that happen.
I am thankful that I have been able to grow the business to serve the needs of not only our wonderful students, but also professionals around the state.
And I am so thankful to work for such an amazing company!
I truly could not do what I do here at the Indy Flute Shop without the support of you, my customers, so I truly thank you.

On a personal level, I celebrated the birth of my daughter, Ailey, on April 19th of this year. This was unfortunately followed by a crippling period postpartum depression and anxiety shortly after I returned to work.
I am thankful for the health and happiness of my daughter, as well as my husband, Colin.
I am thankful for the doctors and nurses that treated me during this incredibly difficult period and helped bring me back into the light.
I am thankful for my understanding, patient, and supportive customers and coworkers who allowed me to take care of myself so I could take care of them.

We have a really special thing here. I look forward to sharing many more Thanksgivings with you. What are you thankful for? Drop a comment below!
