Happy Thanksgiving Storytellers! Today here in the States, is a special holiday that for me is a time where I reflect on my life and everything that I am grateful for. In my family, we aren’t big thanksgiving people (Christmas is our jam) but without fail we always will come together at some point in the day and tell each other what we are thankful for. This year, I found myself veering away from my usual go-to choices, and instead found myself being wandering to my blogging life and all the bloggers I’m thankful for.
So today, I wanted to highlight those people, as they have made some of the toughest times bearable by just being their unique selves and with their writing. They are truly gems, and I hope that the rest of 2019 and the entire new year are ones that will shower them with goodness, because they deserve nothing less.

Clo is my partner in crime in almost everything, with my juice and her cuppa in hand we are unstoppable. She has taught me so much in the almost 2 years that I have known her. A complete and total gem she is, I am so grateful that I am able to co-coordinate bookending events with her and I hope I can continue to call friend for the remaining future.
MICHELLE IS THE BEST. Honestly. She is one of my bestest friends and I honestly don’t know what life would be like without her in it. Her advocacy of queer literature and the LGBT+ community not only on her blog but also in her life is something that inspires me daily. Michelle is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Jammmssuuuuuuu!!!! If you don’t know this already, then let me inform you–Jamsu is a complete and total gem. By far my favorite Finn I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and her love of chips/crisps are right up there by mine (though I think she has surpassed me by now). I am so grateful for how authentic she is both in life and on her blog and how when she sets her mind to do something, she does it.
Soph is the diamond among the hay. A lot of people don’t see what a blessing they have when she is around until she is gone, and that completely sucks on them because WOW SOPH IS A PRECIOUS BEAN. Her honesty, her thoughtfulness, and her passion for things are what make me that much more grateful for her friendship. She is never afraid to tell you like it is, and I can always count on her to bless my entire life with her blog posts. Like I said, Soph is a diamond, and I hope I never forget that.
RUBY RUBES IS THE REAL MVP AND THAT’S THE TEA. I think my quality of life got significantly better with her in it. From her blog posts to our daily conversations about romance, audiobooks, and freebies–Ruby is queen. She is my “regular updater for stuff that doesn’t work, awkward memes and Freebie dealer” and honestly, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Kal is literally the wisest Queen out there in the Queendoms. Her friendship is something I hold very dearly and I am thankful each and every day for that moment on twitter where I found out that we share a love of BSG and basically forced my love unto her. Her advocacy of international readers as well as her use of her voice in regards to GRCA is something that inspires me as well as makes me proud. Not to mention, her blog posts have my TBR growing every which way from Sunday as her writing style is as lyrical and entrancing as the stories she reads. Like I said, she is Queen.
DESTINY IS MY FELLOW SOUTHERN GEM THAT WE MUST PROTECT AT ALL COSTS. I think it is safe to admit that I got stupid excited when we first began to talk, because her blog was one of the first five that inspired me to even take the plunge into making my own. Her authenticity in her social medias and her blog are what drew me in and I’ve stayed for who she is–100% herself. I am so grateful for her friendship and having the ability to see a little piece of her within her writings is something I hold very dearly.
Jeimy is a light within the darkness. I get a huge smile on my face every time I waddle to her nook of the internet. She is my fellow Mariana Zapata stan and lover of planners. I absolutely get giddy with every post that she uploads, that at times, I like to save them all so I can binge them at once for one big dose of serotonin and dopamine.
MY FELLOW TEXAN WITHIN EUROPE! I absolutely LOVE her. Like there is no scale that can accurately record how much I adore Haley and everything she does. Not only is she my fellow texan, she is my fellow artist who inspires me daily to keep pushing to do what I enjoy. Her love and passion for music and her spawn are some of the things that I adore about her. Haley’s blog is a part of the internet that I feel the coziest entering and one that I am so grateful my TBR gets full by.
Okay, please do not hit me if this comes out SUPER rough…
Camilla è la regina d’Italia. Questo è il tè e ora tutti possono andare a casa. La ADORO tanto quanto è diventata una delle mie amiche più care su questo pianeta. Il mio compagno amante del cibo, Cam è il disprezzo di Olive Gardens, e ultimo sostenitore di Asexuality e della comunità LGBT+. Non so come sarebbe la mia vita senza di lei. Il blog di Camilla è davvero un gioiello da esplorare e lo lascio sempre sapendo di essere diventato una persona migliore dopo.
Ahem now in English:
Camilla is the queen of Italy. That is the tea and everyone can go home now. I ADORE her so much as she has become one of my closest friends on this planet. My fellow food lover, Cam is the despiser of Olive Gardens, and ultimate advocate for Asexuality and the LGBT+ community. I do not know what my life would be like without her in it. Camilla’s blog is truly a gem to waddle to and I always leave it knowing I’ve become a better person after.
Have you ever met someone and fallen head over heels in standom for them? That was what happened to me when I met Meeghan. I became an instant Meeghan stan. There is nothing she could do that I probably would not stan and cheer on. She is truly a gem that I am so thankful I get to know and watch grow! Plus her instagram stories and blog posts are what get me through the week. Solid 10/10 would recommend!
I LOVE KAYLA!!!!!! She is my fellow local romance blogger that I will stan until the test of time. Her reviews are 100% genuine and authentic, her posts all around are ones I get super giddy over and rush to read–even when I’m in a meeting (shh). Kayla is the one blogger I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and though I was an awkward whale the entire time, I got to see that the person on the blog is the same person IRL and I absolutely adore her more for that. She keeps things real with her sass, wit, and authenticity. Quality content from a quality human being.
From my blog to yours–Happy Thanksgiving!
