I love a good quotation, don’t you? In getting my home ready to host Thanksgiving this year, I came across some picture frames I’m not using for anything else. I thought it would be fun to fill them with quotes about gratitude and use them as part of our decor for the holiday.

Here are eight quotes I found that speak to the spirit of the season – four 0f which I designed into Thanksgiving printables! Just click any of the images below to download a 5×7 image (you can print it at home on 8.5×11 paper, but the image itself is 5×7).

Enjoy!

PS – Printing these at home for your own use is totally free – my gift to you. If you want to share the images via social media, we’d love if you link back to this post and tag The Happiest Home when you do. If you have any other plans for the images, such as uploading them to your own blog or site, just shoot me an email first. – Sarah

A Mom's Guide To Getting Naked (And Feeling Good About It.)

Moms: How do you feel about the way you look without your clothes on? If the answer is something along the lines of “ugh,” “meh,” or “eeek!” then you aren’t alone. When I recently wrote about bringing more sex into your relationship, one of my tips was “be kind to your body.” And what I […]

Want to focus on YOU this fall? Join me for Beyond Baby Boot Camp (It's FREE!)

How’s this for irony? The very morning I was set for an early launch of Beyond Baby Boot Camp, a free program meant to both celebrate the freedom and space we start to experience as our children get older, while also urging us to use that newfound time and energy well…my daughter crept into my bed in the […]

Sexy Times Are Here Again: A Primer For Parents Who Aren't Getting Any

Friends, it’s time for me to get real with you. I admit it: I’ve been holding back. When readers have asked how my husband and I have kept our marriage strong through 17 years, divorce, remarriage, and five children, I’ve mostly talked about the emotional stuff: respect, partnership, friendship, forgiveness, support, trust; and the practical stuff, like strategies for making time […]

On home envy, destiny, and being open to possibilities.

On home envy, destiny, and being open to possibilities.

Four or five years ago, when we had recently moved to our little city and I was spending hours weekly poring over real-estate listings, I fell in love with a white Colonial house for sale, just a few blocks from my kids’ elementary school. Full of charm and brimming with built-ins, it was just the right […]

Learning to embrace solitude (even when it comes with sadness)

Learning to embrace solitude (even when it comes with sadness)

One recent weekday afternoon, I found myself in a completely quiet house. Clara was spending the day with my mother-in-law, Jon was with clients, and all the boys were finishing up their last week of school. The weather was perfect: 75 degrees, sunny, and clear. I’d planned to go to the gym, but the outdoors was calling, so instead I […]
