I'm thankful for:
  • Hot chocolate.
  • Turkey Bowl football this morning with family & church friends.
  • Getting married in 9-days.
  • Unexpected surprises. The sweetest girl ever, Cat, who lives in Australia sent Daniel and I a wedding present after seeing our names listed on a registry when she was looking for a gift for a friend. When it arrived, I wasn't sure who it was from, because it said Catherine in Australia. Then I thought about it and remembered my reader/blog friend Cat and emailed her, just to see. Her response? "You've given me so much joy with your posts, that I would give you a little back." Thank you, Cat! I totally cried.
  • All the people volunteering to help on our wedding day.
  • Bridesmaids & best friends (even the one who can't make it—love you, Ash!).
  • Christmas music.
  • Good care for my grandpa, Far Far, who is in the hospital in Seattle.
  • The health of my friends & loved ones.
  • Family—all under one big roof.
  • New opportunities (thanks Yes To Carrots team!).
  • Happiness.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Awww. I did the wrong thing and read this post on the way to work, even though I'm blocked from signing in to Google and knew I couldn't respond till I got home. I've been sitting at work all day thinking about your post. It made my day happy. I'm thankful for finding you're blog and being able to call you a friend. Hope you had a fantastic day.
