What are you thankful for?

I am peeling potatoes and chopping vegetables in preparation for our feast tomorrow, and feeling so happy and cozy.  I wanted to share some things that I am thankful for and to say thank you.

My health - I know how quickly this can be gone and I try every day to remember to appreciate how wonderful it is to feel good

My family - I am blessed with an amazing family near and far.  Mark is a constant source of support and strength for me and I love him more with every day.  Ozzy is such a cutie pie and a never ending source of joy.

My friends - I am so blessed with amazing friends who take time out of their busy day to touch base with me - whether in person, a phone call, a text message, a vox or a wonderful comment on the internet.  We are connected.  I am amazed at the friendships that we have built up in the wonderful YT community. Thank you. I am so blessed to have you as my friend and appreciate your sharing your life with me across the miles.

The intangibles - Being free.  Being happy.  To smile as I see the hummingbirds in my yard.  To enjoy a sunny day. To sit outside and read. To have so little that is worth worrying about.  

For all these things and more, I am so thankful.  No matter whether you are in the States and celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow or elsewhere in the world, I hope that you have much to be thankful for, now and every day of the year.  I would love to hear what you are thankful for to let me share in your life and remind me of things to appreciate.

Much love to you,



  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Elle. I try to be grateful for everything everyday. Life is short (cliché, I know).

    1. Thank you so much. You are so right that life is short and so much to appreciate in that short time. xoxo

  2. Happy thanksgiving ( belatedly) !
