I love my small town world

All good things comes to an end eventually. Laying in my bed watching the snow falling slowly down, I'm feeling grateful for being able to spend my last couple of weeks in the lovely state of South Dakota. To spend that time with my family and to be able to see friends, truly blessed ! You never really truly realise how much you have missed someone or something until you're reunited. It's the little things around here that makes me happy. Like driving around on dirt roads blasting country music and laughing with friends. Or sitting down at the dinner table and having one of my siblings say the cutest prayer before we eat. 

Also very thankful for getting to spend thanksgiving with my big american family. Can't remember the last time I had that much food. 

This was just the first round! Everything was so good! We had mashed potatoes and gravy , turkey and stuffing, sweet potatoes and bunch of different salads, even though I wouldn't call them that !

This has definitely made it's way to my top list of places to visit during Christmas time. It's at the capitol building in Pierre. This years theme was around the world. Even my own little Finland had made it ! 

Getting older has taught me that it's not the things that make you happy but the moments, the memories that you'll have for the rest of your life. So grateful for all the new memories I've made these past weeks.
