Tina, over at Carrots and Cake, is doing a "Be Thankful Challenge." It's such a good idea, and I have so much to be thankful for, so I am going to do the same. So here is my list so far this month. 1st: I am thankful to have gotten home on time and with no major hassles. As much as I complain about travel, it's pretty amazing that I get all the way across the country so often safely and quickly. 2nd: I am thankful to be home. I love, love, love my house. 3rd: I am thankful for the new opportunities that constantly present themselves. I'm not quite ready to share this one yet because I'm not sure where it's going. 4th: I am thankful to be able to cook, and even more thankful to be cooking for people I love. I am prepping all the food for my housewarming party and having a blast. On the menu: caramelized onion tart, spanikopita dip,, rosemary pecorino cheese and crackers, and then the chocolate fountain with marshmellows, graham crackers, apples, and pretzels for dipping. 5th: I am thankful for my amazing friends and family. I didn't have a huge turn-out for the house warming party, but the people that mattered most all came. I couldn't help but think how different it was from my last house warming 4 years ago. Then we were all in our early/mid twenties and we stayed up till 3 am playing beer pong. This house warming party we ranged in age from 6 weeks to 60, and spent a lot of time jiggling babies, and playing red light green light. The party was wrapped up at 8:30 pm. 6th: I am thankful to have gotten to run with a good friend on a beautiful fall day. My friend Jen from Wheaton stayed over after the party and we went for a great run in the morning and then had brunch. It totally brought me back to my college days when I never ran alone. I miss that. 7th: I am thankful to have high quality, affordable medical care available to me. Since fainting 2 weeks ago, I've continued to have dizzy spells so I finally went to the doctor today. It was quick, efficient, and my new doctor is great. Hopefully she'll figure out what's up with me. What are you grateful for?
