Happy Thanksgiving!

(Looooooove her...think she kinda looks like me sans the turkey since I won't be cooking this year)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Waking up in the morning to the smell of turkey and stuffing, cozying up on the couch to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, taking trips down memory lane with family and friends, all that good eatin', nodding off to the sounds of football...it has always been a comforting holiday for me.

I wish all of you, and your families, a very Happy (and yummy) Thanksgiving! Whether you go around the table aloud or you silently reflect, I hope that you will consider all of the many things you have to be thankful for...and don't forget about the simple things! I know there are many of us with really big hopes and dreams that have not yet come to fruition, but I encourage you to still give thanks for what you DO have. A roof over your head, food on your table, clothing on your back, supportive family, good friends, your J-O-B (that will be number one on my list this year)...these are things that so many people don't have, and that so many of us take for granted.

Be thankful and enjoy!

I miss all the traditions. Tday is the holiday that makes me "feel" the most that I am far away from so many friends and family. I hope you had a great day and thank you for reminding us all that the simple things are what count, I am in total agreement.
