Grateful heart

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I can't even begin to write down all that I am grateful for. Let's just say that I had a wonderful heart to heart with Heavenly Father this morning. He knows. But just a small recap for all of you...

my sweet husband. our marriage. my family. my body. my health. the gospel. hugs. the sun. quotes. my testimony. my education. a's education. the preisthood. temples. interior design. church callings. kipling. exploring. cell phones. the prophet. my friends. their families. computers. enough food. brave people. our apartment. this gorgeous autumn day. an income. forever families. our car. books. animals. history.  my journal. art. pinterest. experiences. make up. nice people. love. photos. trials. movies. laughter. fruit. babies. blogs. my freedom. holidays. life.

We started this day off right with sleeping in until 10 am (I can't remember the last time I did that!!!) We made bfast while singing and dancing along to Les Mis and the Cure (strawberry and nutella crepes mmm...mmmm) and a little Arrested Development. Can this day get any better?! really can.

The menu for this blessed day

spinach artichoke dip with crostinis
Grandma's famous mashed potatoes and gravy
old fashioned sage stuffing
Rhodes rolls
ceasar salad
baked zucchini
sweet corn
strawberries and raspberries
Pumpkin pie a la mode
cranberry sauce
and turkey turkey turkey!!!

We really wish that we were with our families today but a low key Thanksgiving is just as wonderful. I am so grateful for this experience here in Cleveland. It has been hard and even miserable at times but A and I have grown so much closer and really become our own family. I never thought that I would say this but I am grateful for Cleveland. :)

I'm off to take the boy for a Thanksgiving walk before the food madness begins! I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for YOU!!!
