Happy Thanksgiving


Today is Thanksgiving in United States and many families will gather around the table to eat, drink and be thankful together. I think I love Thanksgiving as much as I love Christmas. I am thankful I can share a meal with the people I love in my home. I hope all that are celebrating today are sharing this day with those they love.

Thanksgiving Table

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is it’s at my house. No traveling. I end up doing all the cooking but my kids like to help and I enjoy setting a pretty table and serving a nice meal. My husband and I are ninjas in the kitchen when it comes to clean-up and then we collapse on the couch in our PJ’s and enjoy a glass of Port after everyone leaves and the kids go to bed. It’s awesome.

I’m thankful for many people and things in my life. Here’s the shortlist:

  • My family. They love me. And tolerate me.
  • My friends. You know who you are and you know why I love you.
  • My blog. I do this every single day and it’s become an important part of my life.
  • I say “my” blog but really, I couldn’t do it without Angela, Jen, Catherine, Amy, and Samantha. Their hard work and support make blogging the best thing EVER. Plus, their pimpage is awesome.
  • My husband who fixed my kitchen with the flip of a switch and saved Thanksgiving this year.
  • Diet Dr. Pepper. I love you diet Dr. Pepper. I do.
  • Frozen margarita bags. Late night blogging got so much more fun since I discovered these.
  • Twitter. I run all things by Twitter. How did I manage my life without Twitter?
  • My laptop, iPad, and my iPhone because they connect me to my online friends and I love my online. It’s a special kind of friendship.
  • The romance community. So diverse, so crazy, so fun.
  • My city. Because it’s 75 degrees, with beautiful blue skies in November. And it’s pretty much like that all the time.
  • Everyone who takes a moment from their day to stop by Fiction Vixen. Thank you.

What are you thankful for today?

    :-) Best part of Thanksgiving is having 4 day weekend with my husband, he is home part of the week and works long hours so at night we have 3 hours for him to eat/relax and then time for bed and then get up early to start it all over again so I am thankful for those extra days in his company. His working out of town 3-4 days every week is a pain that we have put up with for almost 8 years and holiday weekends are spent home relaxing.

    Favorite thing to eat is dressing with a few pieces of turkey, at least a couple meals anyway cause after that I am wanting beef to eat! :-)
