Thanksgiving Edition

I suppose I love Thanksgiving for the food. Most importantly, food any day of the week with my family. I enjoy the loudness as it echoes through the house, and our laughter as we share stories about our childhood. We get lost in our stories and forget we’re probably screaming in each others ears. Moments like this make up my day, and remind me that chaos is okay inside my bubble. Today I’m most thankful for…

photos of my nephews smiling awkwardly
random “I love yous” from my niece
the daily knock at the door by my niece
listening to my niece sing about the color blue
Frankie’s furry paws
when Frankie snores
the smell of clean linen
pizza
a case of St Arnolds
people who love me in spite of my flaws
watching Meet Me In St Louis over wine with my mom and sister
enjoying Tim Duncan videos
bonding with my sister over Law and Order, and our new favorite show, The Blacklist
thick sweaters
winter boots
my eye mask
the moment of silence when I eat
listening to my niece and nephew giggle
the chaos that brings balance in my life
the simplicity of life
country music
my mom, who derives joy from watching me eat her food
moments I get to facetime with my sister
facetime
moments when Frankie lays on my feet as I work
the memories and love my sisters and I share
