Giving Thanks

{cranberries, chopped by my Grandmother, in preparation for Thanksgiving dinner}

Because Christmas is one of my favorite holidays and I love making lists, last night I found myself making a mental note of all the goodies (big and small) that I’m wishing for this December.  But then I realized that my actual favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is only days away and I hadn’t yet made the appropriate list!  So, here goes the list of just a few things I’m feeling thankful for this year:


the best friends ever

the fact that I’ve yet to run out of pointe shoes so far this season

the tiny bottles of yummy smelling perfume sold at Marshall’s

boots of all kinds

friends who can knit ;)

my iPhone (and its navigation)

laughing until I can’t breathe

my mom and her listening skills

Ryan Gosling’s appearance in quite a few movies recently

$10 Tuesdays at the nail salon down the street from my apartment

my seemingly never ending supply of tea

my roommate and all of the shenanigans we get up to…

…and the nights where we sit on our couches watching episode after episode of Friends

and lastly, the fact that songs like this are still be written and played by talented musicians:

What are you giving thanks for this year?
