18 Reasons We Are Thankful For Living In North Carolina

Happy Thanksgiving! As a day of giving thanks, I’m reminded of the amazing things in my life, one of those things being my home state of North Carolina.

Saying you’re from North Carolina comes with a lot of pride, we do have so much to be proud of! Our beautiful beaches, mountains to explore, lovely scenery awaiting us each day. If you call the Tar Heel state home, we can all agree we’re thankful for these things.
