Happy day before Thanksgiving! In keeping with tradition, I figured that today I would share a few of the many things I am thankful for. I give thanks everyday for the things in my life, but probably not often enough. It's so easy to get caught up in wanting things we do not have or not being satisfied with the things we do have.

a family that loves me
my friends that support me
Chris & his family
having a full-time job
a roof over my head
a car to drive
a bike to ride
Trader Joe's
my KitchenAid stand mixer
my blog friends
my freedom (& the heroes that protect it)
the world wide web :)
potato chips
gossip magazines
health insurance

(some are silly, some are serious, 
but i'm thankful for it all)

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. If you are able to spend it with your own family, give them an extra hug. Chris & I wish that we could be home with our own families, but since we are going home for Christmas there just isn't enough vacation time. Las Vegas will be fun though (with the exception of the 5K, which I am pretty sure will not be fun AT ALL!).
