Sunday

Since Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here, I thought I would share a random list of things I am very thankful for, in kind of a particular order.  I know I am leaving out things I am thankful for, but here's what I am thinking about this morning...

    1. Thanks Dani - you too! I just got in from a long walk and now need to do housework before I make pies and stuffing and cranberry sauce for tomorrow's big show!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of you who are celebrating today! I saw your boyfriend George in Gravity last night. I will say no more so that I don't spoil it for anyone. He looked good, though! I should read that Imperfection book, do you like it so far? It is exhausting trying to always better yourself, or especially to know you should be are making little progress! I wonder what it says about that. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

    2. Cate - I just got the book so I can't say yet, but I saw her on Oprah after seeing her TED talk. She is fabulous! I am thinking of taking her ecourse that starts on the 20th - it is all about this stuff, plus creative journaling thrown in!

    2. No and neither do they have it in Australia either! It would be in e but I think we are just thankful for bank holidays. Might be a reflection of the psyche? :)

  12. Happy Thanksgiving! Great post! I have to apologize, as you asked on JCA about the technicolor floral print, and I was one of the Wendys who said it bordered on ugly to me. But then, I saw it styled on a SA, and changed my mind :) It is mine now, and at a good price. I have an IRL photo of how I wore it, if you'd like me to e-mail it, though you may have moved on regarding the print.

    Have a wonderful holiday!

  13. Happy Thanksgiving, Wendy. I don't know whether you are a Donna Tartt fan, but her long-awaited third book comes out the 22nd and is receiving a lot of wonderful comparisons to Dickens in the reviews.

  22. This post was lovely -- was feeling a little sad that we won't make it home for Thanksgiving this year, but such a great reminder that we have so much to be thankful for, wherever we may happen to be on the day officially celebrated as "Thanksgiving".

  25. Happy Thanksgiving WMM! Do you celebrate all over again when American Thanksgiving comes around? It'd be tempting... but what do I know?! Hope today is wonderful for you! I am thankful for so much, but really for the relationships I've built from within the JCA community. Best thing ever, especially with my IRL friends are scattered and too busy.
