Much like countless other 20-somethings, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star Nina Dobrev rang in the Thanksgiving holiday with friends, since her own family is far off in Canada. But unlike the rest of us, Nina’s best friend just so happens to be Julianne Hough — and she welcomed Nina into her family with open arms.
Nina Dobrev, 24, definitely has a lot of love in her life. Between her throngs of loyal Vampire Diaries fans and BFF Julianne Hough, 25, Nina showed the world she has a lot to be thankful for with a gaggle of gushing Instagram posts from her Nov. 24 pre-Thanksgiving bash with the Hough clan.
Nina Dobrev & Julianne Hough’s Thanksgiving Bash
Nina is constantly hard at work filming TVD in Atlanta, so it’s no surprise that she hopped on a short flight to Nashville to celebrate the pre-holidays with her best bud Julianne. Nina and Julianne shared several pictures of the cozy event, which inspired Nina to share some of the many things she is thankful for.
“Giving thanks,” Nina wrote on Instagram. “For friends. Family. Love. Life. Oh and food. Hot coco. Fireplaces. Crisp winter air. Laughter. Sleeping in. @juliannehough.”
With all of the gorgeous and fully festive photos that followed, we can’t blame Nina for her case of the warm and fuzzies. “Also thankful for @juleshough -friend who has become family,” she continued. “And to her amazing family who has welcomed and treated me like one of their own.”
Hey Hough family — want to adopt us, too?
What do you think of the Hough family bash, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy that Nina has a home away from home in Nashville?
