Ah, it's that time of year again. The time of elastic waistbands and tryptophan-induced couch naps, the one day where it is okay to be unabashedly gluttonous. Yes, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays!
I am on my own for the holiday this year, but that doesn't hold much sadness for me. I wish I could be with my boyfriend, of course, but since I can't, I am perfectly content to spend my day mired in pajamas, decaf coffee, and a nice dinner at Ruth's Chris.
I am thankful for many things in my life. Thankful to be well situated in life, thankful for my home, thankful for my boyfriend, thankful for a long weekend off work, thankful for my health, thankful for cinnamon tea and pumpkin pie. Thankful for my blog and my readers, few though they may be. =) I like having a day every year to not only stuff my face, but to take a moment to take a deep breath and let my complaints go for a while.
So whatever you are up to today, I hope you have something in your life to be thankful for!
And—just to make this somewhat relevant—I am thankful for the opportunity to pursue my dream of being a "real" writer.
