Thanskgiving













I love all the fire places in these beautiful photos!
The day before Thanksgiving, or as my supervisor says, "Thanksgiving Eve." Our CEO announced on Monday that he's giving us a casual dress Wednesday, so I'm decked out in jeans and comfy shoes. It makes me think, what else am I thankful for?

1. Sparkly bracelets
2. Beautiful neighborhoods to go walking in
3. A little baby neice on her way (4 months to go)
4. Healthy family
5. Inexpensive gas that allows me to travel to Minnesota without crying
6. My blog family (you know who you are)
7. Self Portrait project that allows me to "see" you all in a different light--thank you
8. Turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie with Uncle Harry
9. Eggnog lattes
10. Andrew's patience and hugs in the morning

What are you thankful for today? I'll be in Minnesota till Sunday, so I'm taking a Thanksgiving blog break. I wish you all a wonderful, delicious, relaxing Thanksgiving holiday! Sending you all heaps of love!

You should here me "Oooo & Aaaah" as I scroll down through your photos. Just when I think "Wow, what an amazing room"...I'm like "Woo, THAT one's even BETTER!"
I'm Thankful for all your Eye Candy!!!

Geez, I've been asking you why you have such quality, quality pictures and it's only now that i've finally got it. Duh, I'm so stupid sometimes. Haha. You're a graphic artist after all.

LOVE the third one. Do you know, both my desktop walls (for my laptops at home and at work)are pictures featured here? Thanks for these lovely things. =)

How are you Julia? I'm playing catchup after a Thanksgiving break...and wanted to say hi. I love your Thanksgiving pics. I'm so thankful for having all the basics...health, family, friends, happiness, and a warm cozy home. Oh...and I would be so, so thankful to have the "dream" room you've included. :)

Missed you...hope you have a great Thanksgiving.
