It's early(ish) Thanksgiving morning. The hubby is still asleep and the cats, well fed and content, have curled up next to me while I type. The only sounds are the slight whir of the heater and the clacking of the keyboard. It's a perfect holiday morning with space to reflect about how absolutely pinch-me happy I am.

This year I am thankful for:

The People...

Love by Fountain *My wonderful hubby--He's patient, loving, kind, and fiercely intelligent. He never once scolded me for crashing the car and, in my mind, that says it all.

*The kitty babies--they are warm purring cuddly balls of destruction and they make everything better.

*My friends--who make a dedicated effort to keep in touch, even though we are far away.

*Bloggers--all those wonderful people who put their thoughts, ideas, tips, tricks, and lives on display. They are a never ending source of inspiration to me, from the quilters who make me wish I could make a quilt a week just to make all the amazing things I see to the mommy bloggers whose refreshing honesty gives me hope for the generation they are raising.

The Big Things...

Stoplight*Our new house--It's beautiful, colorful, spacious, and has everything we ever wanted and then some.

*My job--I have a job I adore. I get to learn new things everyday, work with amazing people, and help bring products into the world that improve people's lives, even if only a little.

*My hubby's job--A job that lets him do what he dreamed of doing with coworkers he likes and respects.

*Our amazing new hometown--the lush trees, the clean air, the friendly people.

And the Little...

All Together Now*Online shopping, especially Etsy--I love being able to shop handmade year round and gift people with things that are made with love.

*Serendipitous decorating--the way all the random things we've collected over the years are pulling together to create an amazing whole.

*Netflix--not only do I not have to drive to the video store, but the hubby can stream all the scary movies he wants to his heart's content.

*Little mouse shaped cat toys--and the way Abby carries them around the house

*A super cute haircut!

What are you thankful for?
