My Thanksgiving thankful list

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope your tummy’s are full with turkey and stuffing and you’re forced to spend the rest of the night on the couch from the delicious food coma. That’s a holiday.

Today, I stuffed myself with turkey and making a swimming pool of gravy in my mashed potatoes. But before I surrender to my own food-induced exhaustion, I wanted to reflect on what’s really important about Thanksgiving and make a list of what I’m grateful for this year, both silly and serious (and in no particular order):

  • Good health (despite a recent cold and cough that is driving me crazy)
  • A stable job
  • Friends
  • Family
  • Straight teeth
  • Roomba
  • Bubbles
  • Moroccan oil
  • A glass of wine or champagne at the end of the day
  • Pretzel M&Ms
  • Underwire bras
  • Impromptu dance parties
  • Hugs
  • My dishwasher

Okay the list is mostly silly but the serious stuff is solid too :) I’m going to hang on to this Thanksgiving joy for a little bit longer before I move on to the next holiday. I will try to hold off on the Christmas talk until December 1, not that far away!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish or what are you thankful for this year?
