Little Things: The List

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! In the spirit of this lovely holiday, I wanted to take a moment to give thanks for some of the most important people in my life:

1) To my husband: Thank you for being there for me every single day. For loving me unconditionally, supporting me in everything I do, making me laugh, taking care of me and being the best husband a girl could ask for.

2) To my family near and far: Thank you for always being there for me even if we can't always be together. For encouraging me to follow my dreams, giving me the freedom to make my own choices, worrying about me, continually challenging me to be the best I can be, and for loving me more than I sometimes feel like I deserve. I love you all and miss those of you who aren't here. I wish we could all be together today.

3) To my friends near and far: Thank you for being my support system. For calling and emailing even if you have nothing important to say, making me laugh so hard I cry, letting me be my silly self without judging me, asking me about school even though you know I will probably launch into a 30 minute speech containing way more school-related information than you could ever care about knowing, giving me advice even when I can't ask for it and for everything positive you bring into my life. I love all of you, and miss those of you I don't see nearly often enough.

4) To every single person reading this blog: Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read what I write. For leaving comments, supporting me, encouraging me to keep doing what I'm doing and for caring enough about me to read about what's going on in my kitchen. You guys are the best!

And finally, as promised, I have been keeping a list for the past month of "little things" that make me happy...
