A Day To Be Thankful

I cannot believe it's Thanksgiving. This year has seriously flown by so fast. 2012 has had quite a few ups and downs but at the end of the day, I know I am a very lucky girl, and I am very grateful for the life I have.

I loved the list I posted last year about all the things I was thankful for - so here is this year's version! 

 I am thankful for...
My health and happiness
A roof over my head.
Clothes on my body.
Food in my belly.
A supportive and loving community.

Not to mention some of the fun stuff that makes life so amazing:
Spicy tuna on crispy rice.
My iPhone - and Facetime with my best friends!
Shopping online. 
Swedish Fish.
The Drybar.
Visiting the Brentwood Farmer's Market every Sunday morning.
The fact that I finally learned how to cook!
Starbucks Chai Lattes and fountain Diet Coke.
Getting to decorate my new apartment so it feels like home.
Carbs.
My friends' adorable babies that they let me hold and snuggle and kiss.
Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Max Greenfield.
Sequin blazers, sparkly ballet flats, and glitter nail polish.
Gchat.
Date nights!
Our ridiculously comfortable king-sized bed.
Salted caramel ice cream.
Reality television.

And most importantly: my wonderful, adorable boyfriend who makes me laugh every single day and is the best roommate ever, my amazing, hilarious friends who are there for me no matter what, and the best, most supportive family in the world.

And in light of what is going on on the other side of the world, I am especially thankful for Israel. My thoughts and prayers are with my friends and loved ones living there as well as the brave IDF soldiers who protect our land and our people every day. I am so thankful that I live in a country where I feel safe and secure, and I can only pray that next year at this time, the people of Israel will be lucky enough to be thankful for the same.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving!
