This is my favorite time of year, right now. The beginning of the holiday season just fills me with warm fuzzies that last all the way through mid-January (February if I’m being lazy). The holidays always fill people with gratitude and they remember to say thank you for their families and well-being. Of course I’m also appreciative of those things but today I’d like to draw attention to things that are often taken for granted, the little things.
Things I’m Grateful For:
1. Scissors that work. Why, just last week I was cutting (as we all are at some point in the day) and all I could think was, “Wow, these are nice scissors. Not like those scissors I used to cut with in elementary school. These are NICE. I’m so happy I took the leap and purchased some scissors worthy of all this cutting I’m doing…”
2. Elevators because, let’s face it, who wants to walk up a flight of stairs when you can be magically transported without moving a muscle? If you said, “I do, I want to walk up a flight of stairs,” you exercise too much. Elevators are the closest thing we have to teleportation. Don’t be better than the elevator.
3. Books. Obviously.
4. People that cover their mouths when they yawn. Really, thank you. From all of us.
5. The invention of Seamless. While I love to cook, it’s not always ideal in a studio apartment. If it weren’t for Seamless, I’d probably have starved by now. Shout out to Red Beet Gnocchi for keeping me nourished.
I am so excited to be spending so much time with my family this month but will try to make it back for a blog or two before 2014!
