Being thankful

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Before I head back to the kitchen to finish preparing the first Thanksgiving my SIL and I are preparing, I wanted to put up a post about being thankful.

This year has been full of change, but I’m still thankful for so many things in my life. Now, I just need to be better about being thankful for them year-long, not just today. Working on that.

So, here is my 2011 list of things I’m thankful for:

  • Friends (old and new)
  • A good job
  • Ability to travel (and the balls to challenge myself to do it)
  • Fur nephew/brother/SIL
  • Ability to live in a good apartment in Chicago
  • iPhone (even though AT&T sucks)
  • Dishwasher
  • Leggings (which always get me through the holidays)
  • North Face jacket (which I’ve slept in twice and spilled a plethora of food on)
  • Cooking accessories (which have helped me immensely in the last 24 hours – love you skillet)
  • Not having to travel far for Thanksgiving
  • Being as awesome this year as I was last year (high self-esteem much?)

Yep, that’s part of the list for this year. Some are ridiculous and some are serious (as you can tell).

I will be back with a full report on our Thanksgiving meal, but I will say this, the house already smells amazing.

I hope you all have a wonderful, food-filled Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for?
