Giving Thanks!


There is so much to be thankful for this year!  BellaRose tops the list indeed.  I am grateful for this reminder of being thankful.  It is so very easy to get caught up in the day to day life and stress and to overlook how truly blessed we all are.  I am thankful for my wonderful husband and for his strength, I am thankful for my family who love us so passionately and deeply, I am thankful for my friends who stand by me daily, I am thankful to be home for the holidays and for BellaRose to begin her own traditions, I am thankful for the ability both physically and financially to cook this thanksgiving dinner and open our home to our friends.  I am thankful for the heat that just turned on and the cider simmering on the stove. I am thankful for Christmas music and my new sink!  I am thankful for a good cup of coffee and a kiss from BellaRose.  I am thankful for warm mixed nuts with rosemary and shallots and sweet potatoes and all the other trimmings.
I am thankful!

Yes, we are blessed. I love this holiday. Happy Thanksgiving.

Sorry I never get a chance to chat at the gym these days. My kids are always just about to lose it in childcare after an hour and a half so I have to hustle to get them out of there after class. I am so glad you are there though!
