Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving has come and gone, but it’s never too late to count your blessings. I have so much to be grateful for this year: a husband who makes me laugh on a daily basis, a healthy family — the one I was born into and the one I married into, a secure job that challenges my creativity. The list goes on.

Here are just a few things that made my Thanksgiving week a very happy one:

  • kind neighbors who allowed us to cook our Thanksgiving dinner in their gourmet kitchen because Aunt B’s oven went kaput (and, yes, we transported all of the casserole dishes by foot)

  • Tripoley and Bailey’s mint chocolate Irish cream
  • discounted camera lenses from Canon
  • “pumpkin pie in a pint glass”

  • a framing workshop and a patient husband
  • girlfriends I’ve had since grade school
  • a sunny, 60° day in November
  • kisses from my favorite little lady
  • new bed pillows that were well worth the investment
  • corduroy skirts, knit tights, and tall boots
  • the little place we call home

I hope you and yours had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  1. Dang, that pizza looks GOOD. Sounds like an excellent Thanksgiving, all round! I wish I had gotten some discount canon lenses, but even more, I wish I had a sweet DLSR to go with them! I had thought I might try to find a good black friday deal, but a) there weren’t many to be had, and b) I probably shouldn’t spend that extra $900 when I have Christmas presents, wedding party gifts, and a wedding ring to buy 😉 I have been intrigued by the minty Bailey’s since it came out… how is it?

    1. Kathleen, I bought my Canon Rebel XTI almost four years ago, and I can’t believe it’s already so out of date! It’s impossible to keep up with technology. But I do still love it. And, yes, the mint Bailey’s is delish — especially if you’re a fan of mint chocolate chip ice cream like I am. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
