Wishing you all a happy, safe & peaceful Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for…
Crisp Autumn days with blue skies and crunchy leaves
Chilly nights that make fluffy blankets a necessity
A resilient little puppy that made it through surgery and is recovering well at home
Red wine and braised red cabbage, but not necessarily at the same time
Socks that match, and survive the washing machine while remaining as a pair
Gilmore Girls, and the 7 full seasons available online to distract from dark evenings
Pumpkin Pie, pumpkin pie season, and the fact that November is a good enough excuse in itself to bake one.
The fact that we’re mere days away from being able to put up a Christmas tree without too much judgement
Fresh coffee in the mornings
Wonderful friends who send cheery WhatsApp messages exactly when you need them
The life changing magic of a heated towel rack on cold mornings
Marshmallows that melt into syrupy hot chocolate
Family and friends near and far who are always there when you need them
Sweatshirts worn in just enough to be oh-so soft and comfy
Cosy cafes that remember your order when you walk through the door
Festive lights adorning the local high street to brighten up the dark afternoons
You, for visiting and reading. Thank you.
A footnote: I’m well aware that Thanksgiving is not a UK holiday, however I do celebrate it despite living here. I also think that even if it’s not something you celebrate, taking a moment to be thankful and grateful is always a good thing.
