While there WILL be a big Thanksgiving roundup coming, and believe me it will be both photo-heavy AND food-heavy, for now, I will be brief.
I’m thankful for having enough, and sometimes too much.
I’m thankful for amazing friends, who stick it out with me no matter what.
I’m thankful for a guy who will support me earnestly and wholeheartedly, just because he loves me.
I’m thankful for a family who love me, and who try their best to let me be everything I can and don’t encourage me to be too much that I’m not (besides neat.)
I’m thankful for youth.
I’m thankful for idealism.
I’m thankful for dreams and freedom to follow them.
I’m thankful for Rock-102 and jamming in the kitchen with my dad to Journey.
I’m thankful that my mom acquiesced and made the mashed potatoes without me having to beg. Because they’re the best.
I’m thankful for my dog, who kept us company in the kitchen and didn’t beg too much.
I’m thankful for my grandmas, who are two tough ladies that just keep on going, like Energizer Bunnies.
I’m thankful for my brother. Hemp Necklace.
I’m thankful that the squash was well-received, that the turkey was awesome, that I didn’t ruin the gravy, that the mac & cheese was good, and that my dad left that little dish of stuffing out on the table all day, because I ate way more than my fair share of it.
And boy oh boy am I thankful for Trifle.
And of course, for you. All of you. Whoever you are. I love to cook and I love to talk about it and honestly I’d probably be out here, blogging, even if no one read me. But I love that you show up, and read what I have to say, and what the rest of the Pretty Girls have to say. We’re starting to hit our stride, and I promise it’s only up from here. Thanks for your comments, thanks for stopping by. At our virtual Thanksgiving table, the extra place setting is for all of you.
And we’ll leave the light on.
