Thanksgiving snuck up on me this year... somehow the warm days of summer slipped quietly into November and without the sun setting so early in the evening I don't think I would have known the holidays are here. Our lives have been blessedly wonderful here at Liv Life and we have much to be thankful for.
First off I'm thankful for the good health that has blessed our family this year and the safe travels of my loved ones.
I'm thankful for Liv who shows me what it's like to truly Liv Life to the fullest each and every day.
I'm thankful for my son who makes me smile with his wit and views on life.
I'm thankful for my husband who takes such good care of me.
I'm thankful for my parents who are always just a phone call away.
I'm thankful for my girlfriends who support me when times are low and who celebrate with me when times are good.
I'm thankful for the chemo that is helping more friends than I had ever imagined would need it.
I'm thankful for the Dance Mom's of Liv's competition team who are nothing like the dance moms on tv. (and that Twitch took a moment to pose with us!)
I'm thankful it doesn't snow in San Diego.
I'm thankful for Italian Pasta and wine with lunch.
And I'm thankful for this wonderful food community that I have become a part of through this blog. Thank you for the support, the wonderful comments you all leave and the extraordinary recipes you share. Thank you for checking in on me when I've been absent for a while, thank you for the spontaneous emails and facebook posts just to say hi, and thank you for the friendship.
Liv and I want to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving filled with wonderful food, family and friends. I'm sending virtual hugs to my husband who is spending the holiday on the road in a hotel. Our real celebration will be when you return home!
