Happy Thanksgiving! We spent the day as a family of three, eating, relaxing, and napping. I couldn't ask for anything better.

Although this is just the tip of the iceberg, but I feel compelled to tell you that I am thankful for so much:

  • my amazing (and amazingly patient) husband; 
  • our sweet baby Madeleine, her happy demeanor, and her good health;
  • our parents' health; 
  • our siblings and extended families (and the opportunity to see almost all of them in the last year); 
  • our friends - old and new, near and far; 
  • the babies coming into our friends' and family members' lives in the next year and the technology that allowed some of them to be possible; 
  • the technology that allows us to keep in touch with our friends and family across the globe; 
  • our new home and dreams of our future here; 
  • the opportunity to travel; 
  • having plenty of food and a closet of wine; 
  • getting our groceries and much more delivered to our door;
  • heat (especially after 3 days and 2 nights without it); 
  • this little outlet for writing and sharing our day-to-day; 
  • getting to know some of my "old" friends in a whole new light as we've entered motherhood at the same time; 
  • watching George and Madeleine interact and grow their relationship; 
  • the opportunity to be with Madeleine and make our house the home we desire; 
  • time and space to be creative and figure out my next steps; and 
  • George's employer and the care it shows for its employees. 

I hope you've had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and gotten the opportunity to reflect on the blessings of the last year. From me and mine to you and yours: Happy Thanksgiving!
