Giving Thanks

Dear Reader,

Last year I made a list of things I am grateful for, in honor of Thanksgiving.

So, as I promised this time last year, here are more things I am grateful for:

Children's magazines
Working at a children's magazine
Hidden Pictures
Getting to do Hidden Pictures at the children's magazine that I work at (That's what I was doing today. Can you tell?...)
Fluffy kittens named Bailey
My surprisingly resilient car, Jacques, who has been my faithful travelling companion these last 6 months
Being a "real" adult, with my own apartment and everything (even if that comes with my own bills and everything)
Aunt Kerstin and Uncle Mike for hosting Thanksgiving this year
Living close enough to my parents that I can have Thanksgiving with them for the first time in 5 years
The Book of Mormon
Airplane trips to visit friends named Natalie in Portland
Children's books
Children's books at Powell's in Portland
Finally living somewhere that has tons and TONS of green trees
Treadmills and ellipticals
30 Rock
Being a legit college grad
Not having homework (it's seriously THE BEST THING EVER)
Warm clothes
When the sun sets at a reasonable hour like, say, 8 at night instead of 5 in the evening when I'm still at work
Finally getting to see NYC
Ice cream
Caesar salad
The baking section of JoAnn's and Michaels

I have more things to be thankful for than is reasonable for one blog entry. So we will have to continue this again another year.

Until then!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I'm glad you get to spend it with your family!

  2. We're thankful for you, too, kiddo.

  3. What a coincidence, I'm thankful for most of the same things!

  4. I LOVE HIDDEN PICTURES!!!!! They were what kept me occupied at all doctor's appointments (both mine and my brothers..) Mostly orthodontic stuff.. but whatevs.

    Here is a VERY serious question. Could you somehow get me a stack of those? Like, just a pile of hidden pictures? That would be the ultimate best present of ALL TIME. (please let me know if it is even at all possible.). MK. LOVES!
