Happy Thanksgiving!

Me & my dudes

Today, I am grateful.

My body allows me to do wonderful, simple things. I started today by running a 5k with ease and pleasure even though I haven't been running regularly in months.

I have the means and know-how to prepare a beautiful, satisfying meal with my funny, delightful husband, who somehow makes each holiday meal better than last year's.

I can declare that I am magic. Not every moment or every day, but after a couple of years of breathing through uncertainty and loss, I have gathered enough confidence to move forward on some powerful projects. Stay tuned.

My boys are nothing short of amazing. This fall has been full of changes and unknown demands, and they have met them all with grace.

Hot Husband is a saint, the paragon of patience, and my rock. How did I get this lucky to have 20 years with him?

I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Here's to all of the stellar things happening in your world. May the yearning in each of us find a home, and may our wild, wondering hearts hold still for a moment to receive what we truly need.

Hot Husband and his dad both took first in their age groups!

Family fun! Hot Husband's parents came in for Thanksgiving this year!

You haven't had turkey 'til you've had Hot Husband's.


  1. What a good lookin', happy crew! Looks like a fabulous day, all around.

  2. Looks like a great time. Nothing beat running and food, especially with family.

  3. It was a beautiful day, for sure! I haven't been so happy on a run in a while. So grateful!
