I am thankful for...

It is that time of year, the time when we list the things we are thankful for. Here's my list:

1. Having a wonderful husband
2. Having a wonderful family
3. Having wonderful friends
4. Being reconnected to my father and his side of the family via the magic of facebook
5. Chocolate
6. Having a job where I can be around what I love {art}
7. Having been in a wonderful production in the fall {Ladies in Waiting}
8. The continual blessings of God in my life
9. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade

Some days it is easy to let little trials and tribulations get us down. I hope to be able to look at this list when I'm having a bad day and remember that things aren't' so bad after all.

This will be my first year cooking Thanksgiving dinner, luckily I'm only cooking for myself and my husband so there isn't *that* much pressure on the day, but I'm excited.

On the menu: baked macaroni and cheese, stuffing, collard greens, roasted sweet potatoes, croissants, turkey and cookies :-)



  1. Mmmm.. your dinner menu sounds delicious! Good luck- I am sure your husband is VERY THANKFUL for the feast you are preparing!

  2. Wow, you connected with your father through facebook? That's pretty cool! Everyone knocks facebook you know, but I think the technology is awesome and I've met up with some people I haven't seen in years through it.

    Happy thanksgiving and God Bless!

  3. @FreenDreezy - Yea, one of my sisters from my father's side found me there and I pretty much reconnected with that whole side of my family which was awesome. I definitely agree that facebook is a good people connector.
