Thankful

So thankful for laugh out loud photo ops and late nights spent with my boy and our friends.








Thankful for so many things this year ... for cuddles and laughter and anything and everything with my Johnny... my amazing parents & sister and awesome best friends ... fluffy fat cats Winnie and Charlie who always keep me and Johnny on our toes ... and that Barack Obama was just elected as our next president ... I'm also thankful for bad TV like "The Hills" and "America's Next Top Model," summer concerts under the stars, books that are creased and earmarked from being read over and over again, funfetti cupcakes, Robertitos nachos and sleeping in, bubble baths and pedicures, Target, the new place that Johnny and I are so lucky to call home, a fat paycheck when I'm not expecting it and even a small paycheck because I'm still lucky (in spite of what you may read on Twitter. ha!) just to have a job, four day vacations and road trips, weekends and holidays, home cooked meals and eating out, old photos and nicknames, strawberry daiquiris, handwritten letters and surprises, my college degree and favorite professors, new shoes and favorite cardigans, long necklaces, French toast, Steely Dan and Spoon and too many bands to name, Christopher Guest movies, marrying into a big family that plays football on the lawn on Christmas Eve, skinny jeans, cozy PJ's and slipper boots, long walks around the neighborhood, bike rides and camping, sunny days where the sky is filled with tons of cotton ball clouds, board games and nights in, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie (but no thanks to their prices), that I live only a few hours away from the beach and the mountains, a secret handshake and inside jokes, Christmas music and traditions like watching "Planes, Trains and Automobiles on Thanksgiving," long phone calls about nothing, plaid shirts, trees bursting with fall colors, Taro pearl tea, bike rides, "Seinfeld" reruns and fresh baked cookies ...

And I'm also so thankful for YOU, my wonderful readers and friends! I'm so grateful for the friendships I've made through blogging. You guys seriously are the bee's knees. xoxo

I'm a lucky, lucky girl.

Hope you all had a super Thanksgiving!
