thankful thursday, one last time

As November comes to a close, there's one more chance to celebrate with Miss Lifesaver for her Thankful Thursday posts!

There's been many things to be thankful for, and here's my last list!

Thankful for my Chicago friends!

We had our first friendsgiving this year - but it's was Kristy's (right) second-annual baconsgiving. Kristy hosted and we all brought dishes. Only requirement? Everything had to have bacon. There was bacon guacamole, bacon-wrapped jalepeño poppers, stuffing (with bacon), Mac and Cheese (with bacon), Bacon Butter to go on the bread, and chocolate chip cookies (with bacon). The cookies? So good! Time with friends? Even better! :-)

Thankful for my bffs!

I don't know if you know, but I love cards. I love to send them and I love to get them, and I love my bffs. Here they all are: Anita, Heather, Jamie, Holly, Liz, and Katie. We live all over the place: Southern California, Kentucky, Washington State, and Phoenix, and of course Chicago....but we keep in touch enough to make the times we're away from one another more bearable. I wouldn't be who I am without these six - and I'm so thankful for each of them!

Thankful for this blog!

I had no idea how much I'd love blogging when I started this blog in July of 2013. Not only that, but I've made new friends, have networked with other reading specialists and literacy coaches, have lived the "writerly life," and have had an outlet for creativity that I had never imagined. I really get so much from blogging - so much more than it actually takes to sit down and write, and for that, I'm forever thankful.

What are you thankful for? Write up your post and link it up with Miss Lifesaver!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Thanks for linking up, my friend! I, too, am thankful for your blog because it's how we met! I'm impressed with your close ties to friends all over the country, and it makes me a little sad about my own friends I've lost touch with due to distance. There really is no good excuse with all this technology at our fingertips. I should reach out to some of my old friends!
