Happy Thanksgiving!

It was a great week for me. I had a wonderful time with my in-laws cooking, eating and vegging. Here’s what we did on Thanksgiving:


Waiting for turkey. Isn’t his shirt cool?


In she goes.


Deep fried turkey. SUCCESS!


Chilled soda. Grapefruit. MMM.


Waiting for food.


Carving the turkey.


Doesn’t that turkey make you salivate? It was delicious.


Good pie. Sad crust.


Too many cups on the table.


Still waiting for food.


The turkey-induced coma.

food overload. It looks like I’m 18 weeks along! I’m not.

I’ve been thinking on and off about the things and people that I’m grateful for and it’s boiled down to two lists. The silly things I’m grateful for and the sappy things I’m grateful for.

The silly things I’m grateful for:

  • An abundance of socks. Nice fuzzy socks and colorful tights. It’s been a childhood dream of mine to own comfortable socks.
  • Black Friday sales. I just got 50% off some amazing clothes at Tulle.
  • Sweet vintage chairs (more on that when I find my perfect table–Thanks Annie!)
  • The Yudu machine. Thanks Linda!
  • My wacom tablet.
  • My purple suede boots.

The sappy things I’m grateful for:

  • My husband, of course! Chris is the only one that fills that lonely void in my heart. He’s my other half. He makes me so, so happy. There’s no one in the entire universe that I trust more with my heart than him. He’s my perfect prince charming and he makes an excellent Mr. Mom.
  • My family. I’m grateful for all of my family members and for the support they’ve given me. I am also so grateful that Chris and I were able to start our own little family. I have loved Penelope from the very beginning. I feel really humbled that Penelope came into our lives as fast as she did. I know of so many couples struggling with fertility, and sometimes I feel a little undeserving to have such a beautiful and healthy child. I won’t take her for granted. I love Penelope so much.
  • My circumstances. I’m learning a TON from our current situation, and for that I’m thankful. I’ve gained more perspective, more confidence in my work and more love and appreciation for Chris and Penelope.
  • My church. I believe in God and I believe God is good. Very good. I’m thankful that my church has helped me figure that out.
