Yesterday was the sort of grey autumn day that makes small pleasures like cozy knits and hot tea more keenly felt. I finally got to bust out my burnt orange cardigan in a layered look that perfectly matched the fall leaves at the local park. As soon as the boy and I wrapped up these outfit shots, we went for brunch and a walk before heading to his parents' place for Thanksgiving dinner.
There are a lot of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: the unusually gorgeous fall weather; returning to my energetic self after being under the weather for a couple days; the time to truly relax. But beyond the small stuff, I have so much for which I'm grateful: the love of friends and family; never having to worry about having food on the table or a roof over my head; being engaged to a loving, supportive man; the mixed-but-ultimately-awesome blessing of being too busy. I'm not religious, but if I were, I'd say the cosmic forces that be have been very generous.
And last but not least, I'm thankful for you, dear readers. As I've been reminded time and again at events, I was "one of the first bloggers in Vancouver." The fact that I started blogging in 2007 and you're still following along and I'm still having fun with it 7 years later—why, that's nothing short of a miracle.
