It’s almost Thanksgiving here in the States! Here are some things I’m thankful for:

1. Pinterest. With the need to stay home and make our own gluten free Thanksgiving dinner, this is where I go to find all things gluten free and Thanksgiving-related.

2. A home that’s warm and full of chaos, love, laughter, bickering, sharing, not sharing, reading, tv watching, dancing, slumber parties every Friday night, and gluten free food that most everybody will eat.

3. Snuggly pajamas, warm coats and hats.


4. A husband that does the dishes and kids that help him.

5. All of the around-the-world blogging friends that I have when I’m missing real-life friends.

6. My treadmill (yes, you read that right), that I can run on when I have an 8 mile run scheduled for training and it’s not even 20 degrees outside.

7. Netflix, so I can watch Brad Pitt in Moneyball and other people in other movies while I’m running on the treadmill for an hour and a half (I never said I was fast).

8. Fuzzy kitties and dogs that like to snuggle (there’s definitely a “warm things” trend here, isn’t there?)

9. An upcoming weekend with my BFF. It’s been WAY too long.

10. My family, every crazy member. Especially these five (photo courtesy of Julie, last year at Union Station):
