I am thankful for {my} family.-Ben, Lucy, Peter... and of course Kona-our dog (even though she might tell you otherwise if she could) I do love her.. I really do. Sometimes it is hard to give even one more ounce. And she, no matter what STILL loves me.

I am thankful for extended family.
I am thankful for friends.

I am thankful that there are 50 seats available on the flight I am about to get on to L.A. I am thanking the people who will be sitting around me today that I hope will be patient as I make a
5 hour flight
from east to west coast. I am thankful that I do NOT have to cook this year.. although I was originally planning on it... sorry Berrey's and Bright's!
I am thankful to go and get some of that rich vitamin D in sunny CA!
I am thankful for free agency.
I am so very thankful for so many things, I could not possibly list them all. These are a few, just know that there are SO many more.

Happy Thanksgiving.

One more thing.... I am {NOT} thankful for turkey. It is gross. But, I am thankful that it brings people together, so I guess I sort of am thankful for turkey, as long as I don't have to eat it.

I have been waiting for Lucy to be the age I was when I wore my

I remember LOVING this costume and thought she did a fantastic replica!
We had a lot of fun
Trick or Treating...
mostly treating this Halloween.
I remember at one point thinking....
we have the

neighborhood for this!
Neighbors who go ALL out,
perfect weather ( not provided by neighbors... but nonetheless)
and friendly fellow cute dresser up-ers!
What a fun night...
even if we do it a few days earlier here in Charleston!

And not to leave out the MOST adorable Goldfish in Barker history!
(thanks Martha)
