What I am Thankful For

I am still recovering from my wonderful Thanksgiving break. I hope you all enjoyed your turkeys… I spent the long holiday weekend in Chicago with some of my absolute favorite people in the world — my best friends from high school (I refuse to say how long ago that was).

Not only did the ladies, who never cook (myself included), ┬ákick the boys out the kitchen and put together a phenomenal full course holiday meal, which includes a yummy 13lb turkey with all of the fixin’s (I am literally still beaming with pride at our skill and tenacity!), but I also had the opportunity to catch up with two of my closet gal pals.

With the stress of work really overwhelming me these days, I’ve fallen out of touch with some of the people I love most in the world. My besties and I literally sat on the floor of my friend’s walk-in closet until 4am talking about what has been going on in our lives, we then spent another full day drinking wine (way too much wine) and watching a full season of Dexter On Demand (great show by the way, that I will cover in another blog).

I started my week today feeling like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders, like I got some therapy that was long overdue. It reminded me of an important lesson that I often times forget — no matter how much work and day-to-day life can get in the way, your love ones are those who will get you through. I needed that reminder. I love you girls.
