It is officially the day before Thanksgiving and boy do I have a lot to be thankful for. The weather is getting cooler, I'm wearing one of my favorite mustard yellow sweaters in honor of "fall," - if there is such a thing in Texas - and I'm generally probably living in the best time of my life to date.

Here's a list of things I'm thankful for, not including those I just mentioned.

1. Jesus. I wonder if He's getting excited about his forthcoming birthday! WINK!

2. a "new" bedspread that's finally in use after receiving it as a gift last Christmas. (don't worry, this isn't a picture of our actual room.....just the merchandising of said bedspread online)

3. living in Dallas. It's changing my/our lives. I think I only had to fill up once last week, rather than twice, and Kevin has exchanged his 3 fill ups/week for 1 every week and a half. Hurrah! We're also grateful for living so close to our work places. Getting hours of your life back every day is indeed praiseworthy.

4. having the luxury of a "guest" bathroom. guests......BRING IT ON!

5. not having to say "goodnight" anymore.

6. Barcelona slideshows that will be up as soon as we get internet.

7. my family.

8. my new family.

9. our pots and pans and my new recipes!

and finally.......

10. I am exceedingly grateful for this most wonderful and recently acquired husband of mine.

I love him so much and I'm excited about this little adventure we're starting. Plus he's pretty easy on the eyes.
