2014 Thankful List
November 26, 2014 § Leave a comment
I’m so fortunate that I get to celebrate Thanksgiving twice this year! In preparation for this 4-day weekend, here’s a little list of what I’m thankful for these days.
MY BROTHER, RYAN, and his wife, Suzanne. We always have interesting conversations when we’re together and Ryan keeps giving me giant Dairy Milk bars! Suzanne has also been sweet enough to visit us twice in NYC the past year.
FRIENDS – especially those with kids! (They just get it!) Seriously though, we have a few wonderful good friends – both here and in Canada – and we love them so much.
HENRY’S BABYSITTER, VALERIE. I’m so happy that I found such a cool lady whom with I can trust what is most important to me. I’m also very thankful I haven’t had to trim Henry’s nails in months – she does it without me even asking! ;)
MY ASHTANGA PRACTICE. Although I’ve gone from practicing at my studio 4 times a week to once a week, I am grateful to have such a portable way of keeping my mind and body in check. I may not have been able to progress much this year, but I have definitely maintained my practice and I know I will get back to working on it when I am able to.
HENRY. You all know this little joker. As my yoga teacher Alana likes to say, Henry is now my practice. He’s taught me many things over the past year and challenged me like no one else has ever been able to. I love him more and in a different way than I’ve ever loved anything before. I’m so thankful he’s come into our lives.
MY HUSBAND, NICK, who amazes me on a regular basis on how thoughtful he is. He is always thinking of Henry and I, and works hard to keep our marriage in shape. He’s handsome, smart, and funny. I could go on, but I’ll just say after 7 1/2 years, I’m still madly in love.
