Happy Thanksgiving everybody! So my friend Ashley has a blog too and she does this thing called Thanksgiving ABCs, where she'll write down what she's grateful in ABC order, and I am going to do the same thing!Amigos. I have the best friends imaginable, and I love making new ones. I have learned a lot from my friends/ex friends about the kind of person and the kind of friend I want/don't want to be. A large part of me is a reflection of my friends.
Bras. Honestly ladies, who isn't grateful for their favorite bra? I was chatting with a friend the other day and we both LOVE bra shopping. It is so much fun!
Chloe, my baby bird. Elle, her dear friend and the sweetest bird I have ever known, died a couple weeks ago. But I know she is now in Heaven with Mandy and Blueberry and Sara and Alice and Tabby, my friend Sara's cat who just died of Aids, and I know she is happy and now she can be my shoulder angel, because that is where she loves to perch :) And the knowledge of this makes me a very grateful girl.
DC. I love this city.
Emperor's New Groove. This is the FUNNIEST movie in the world! I lovee it :)
Family. I am so blessed to be in my family. I hope that I can raise my future kids the way my parents raised us, because I think we all turned out quite nicely :) We love each other, have testimonies, ambition, and want to help and be there for each other.
Google. Bing and yahoo just annoy me.
Harry Potter. This is the best book series ever, the end.
Ink, specifically the ink in my favorite pens. I love them. I loveee pens.

Variety. I love living on the East Coast, but specifically MD and DC. There are so many different religions and cultures and ethnicities. I want my kids to grow up in MD or DC I think.
Winter time. My favorite season! I love snow and nestling up by the fireplace and quilts and carols and decorating the Christmas tree and getting out my Nativity and all the traditions and hearing Christmas music on the radio....It's the most wonderful time of the year!
