As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on what you’re most thankful for in your life. This could be your job, your family members, your friends, your hobbies, and, yes, the Instagram accounts that bring you joy as you’re browsing social media during your lunch break. This holiday season, here are five of the Instagram accounts we’re most thankful for:

Tina Knowles aka Beyoncé and Solange’s mom (@mstinalawson)

Following Queen Bey is great, but if you want even more behind-the-scenes snapshots into her world, don’t forget to give her mom a follow too. You’ll love checking out the family dynamic between the three Knowles women.

Blake Lively (@blakelively)

Blake Lively is basically just life goals. She’s married to super hottie Ryan Reynolds, and yet they also seem to have the most fun, down-to-earth marriage. Her Instagram is peppered with adorable pictures of the two of them goofing off, plus drool-worthy food pics, and some serious outfit inspiration.

Britney Spears (@britneyspears)

Though she may be one of the most important pop icons of all time, Britney’s Instagram is totally relatable. You’ll see tons of pictures of her kids’ artwork, plus funny memes you’ll definitely want to show your friends. Oh yeah, and the occasional picture of her hanging out with shirtless guys when she has a day off from her Vegas residency. Normal.

Chrissy Teigen (@chrissyteigen)

If you’re in the market for food porn, chef, author, and dream BFF Chrissy Teigen delivers. She’s always posting delicious pictures of what she’s cooking up in the kitchen that day. Plus, you know you’ll see adorable pictures of her daughter Luna and husband John Legend.

Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood)

Carrie Underwood’s Instagram is filled with behind-the-scenes peeks from her latest concerts, so if you want costume close-ups and cool show pictures, this is an account worthy of a follow. She’ll also inspire you to get to the gym when she posts pictures of her line of trendy yet functional athletic wear.
