Earlier this week we asked you to tell us what you’re most thankful for, and we’ve rounded up your answers below. Thanks to everyone who shared their gratitude with us!

🌅 Thankful for friendship, health and living in a city like Miami where we have access to the outdoors and are surrounded by natural beauty.

🌺 My exploding bougainvillea.
– Bea Rosabal

🏖 The beach.
– Josie Gulliksen

🌊 I’m thankful that so many local businesses are ditching single-use plastics to keep them out of our oceans! Also for more than $11 million in support of Miami’s awesome nonprofits on #givemiamiday.
– Rebekah Monson

☀️ That we ain’t freezing down here.

🌪 All the seasons that aren’t hurricane season (all love to UM though).

🏙 Thankful for new local opportunities and growth for Miami as a city.
– Charles Villard
