Thanks Giving.

...Taking a moment to get excited about just a few of the blessings my awesome God has given me!

I am thankful for...

Lorenzo, my camera. I never dreamed I would be able to buy him this soon. He completes me.

You! You know that feeling of "no way, you too?? I thought I was the only one!" I've been getting that a lot reading all of your awesome comments and blogs. Your posts and comments encourage me, give me warm fuzzies, make me jump up and down, make me smile, make me squeal "ooh, sparkly/shiny/colorful/so dang cute!, and I love them all.

My sister. Especially recently, since one of us keeps gadding about without the other and then making me miss her. It's rare to be able to get to hang out with your best friend all day. Even though that can be rough at times, too. :-) We're soul sisters, despite the fact that Bethany doesn't like chai tea.

Baby girls. Birth is such a crazy miracle. I am so thankful to have four scrumptious nieces, all healthy and beautiful. I highly recommend aunt-hood. 

Sugar. Without sugar, I would shrivel up and die. It's what keeps me going on those bad days. And what makes my good days fabulous.

Beautiful people. Especially the ones that let me take their picture. How cool of God to make gorgeous people. What if we all looked the same? I'm so glad He made such a colorful and stunning smorgasbord of people in this world. I sure appreciate it.

Those little things. The moments that are just right. When God gives me just what I need, when I didn't even know what it was that I needed. When I just want to hug God, because He is so good.

Happy Thanksgiving. I hope yours is full of butter-soaked mashed potatoes, loud laughter, spicy cider that burns your tongue and makes the house smell like heaven,
and ultimately,
