Thankful ...

Countless posts have been written and deleted. The words are just not flowing. 
 But this one is easy ...

I give thanks this year for all the positives that came about and outweighed the negatives. On a personal level, this year started out pretty rough with some of the worst winter weather and associated damages than we've seen in a long time. The summer wasn't much better with house appliances quitting every.time.we.blinked. But the year brought the celebration of Allyson's graduation from college and finding employment in a location that makes her happy. Ryan survived his first year of college and life's bumps along the way. 
 And my husband and I endured, survived and did a lot of travel through it all, 
plus I got a new job.

So, while it is still acceptable to post Autumn pictures, 
I am thankful and wish everyone a 
Happy Thanksgiving.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Nicki. I hope you all had a great and delicious day!

  2. now is a great time to reflect on everything, the good, the bad and the ugly!!!! when the applianceS go (and it's never just one) i try to say, i am lucky to have a washer, a dryer....but it is difficult at that moment. but we are so very lucky....we have cameras that don't use film, can you imagine!!!!!

    i am wondering where you are, if you are in japan. i will look at some older posts. i hope your turkey day was amazing!!!!

  3. It's nice to reflect, even on the crappiest moments and be grateful for fortitude. xo
