What are you thankful for?

I’m hosting Thanksgiving at my house for the second year in a row. Last year was a practice run as it was just 4 of us, but this  year I am hosting not only MY family, but my friend Karine’s family from France! Yep that’s me, embracing the spirit of Thanksgiving!  Wait until they taste those sweet potatoes – they will never go home!

So what are you thankful for? I could go on for days about all the things that I have to be thankful for in my life, I am truly lucky (and I try to remember this when I get in a bad mood about something stupid and meaningless), but here are 10 random things just for fun!

1. Cheese
2. Chocolate
3. Random people who help me when I have car trouble (helps to give that “damsel in distress” look)
4. DVR
5. The Muppets for always making me laugh
6. Basil
7. Philadelphia Film Society for giving me at least one free movie preview a week for the past few weeks
8. Rainstorms in the middle of the night
9. Thanksgiving Eve – seriously the most fun night out second to Halloween IMHO.
10. My incredible, wonderful, supportive family and friends who I don’t tell enough how much they mean to me. Telling you now. :)

Ok that last one wasn’t so random. Every post is better with a photo, so here’s one I snapped in Central Park this week, I just love the fall colors in the background. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

  1. that picture is beautiful – thanks for sharing! i’m thankful for lots of things this year, but my standard answer for what i’m thankful for at thanksgiving is rutabaga… one can never be thankful enough for the mashed root vegetables in their lives!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful to my parents, mother-in-law and fantastic babysitters for helping me to live the life I want. Thankful for my adorable son for the hugs that show me he loves me. Thankful for my friends for keeping me laughing and having fun. Thankful for my job for keeping me knee-deep in shoes and beer! :)

  3. I am thankful that my mom is still with us for at least one more holiday season. I am thankful to her doctors and nurses who have seen her through a difficult journey. I am thankful to you for providing me the opportunity to stop being strong and brave for one moment and just say the things that are on my heart. And I am eternally thankful to her for all she has done to make me the woman I am. There are no words. I can’t begin to imagine my life without her in it. This wasn’t how things were supposed to end.
