A Day to be Thankful

Each year as I get a little bit older, Thanksgiving becomes a more and more special holiday to me.  When I was a kid it was all about turkey and a 4-day weekend.  Now that I'm a grown up though and I've fallen in love, gotten married, and have started a family of my own it has definitely taken on a deeper meaning.

This year I have a lot to be thankful for again: A wonderful husband of more than a year (!!) and a fun, loving, and ever supportive family.  Speaking of that family, I'm thankful that my parents and my brother and his family have both purchased homes in Michigan this year.  One of the things I loved most about living in Boston was being a train ride away from my family.  Having them a few hours drive away is the next best thing!  I'm thankful for loyal friends (both near and far) with whom we've been able to spend much more time this year; 2 full time and fulfilling jobs; opportunities to travel around the country with my best friend (that aforementioned wonderful husband again); and of course, our health.  Not too shabby.

And I'm also thankful to be hosting our second annual Chicago Thanksgiving and to be celebrating with my husband and my little sister-- two of my favorite people in the world.

Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving full of friends, family, and food.  Eat a lot, count your blessings, and enjoy the day!
