I've tried to make it a tradition every year since I started this blog 4 years ago to take a moment to say thanks around this time. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday in the whole year because it is universal and it comes with no expectations. No presents. And what is better than sharing a meal and being thankful for what you have? No religion necessary for that.

This year has been great and I am grateful to have been able to overcome some of the issues that made the last two years so difficult. This time around I'm just going to mention very few things but share lots of pictures instead because it has been a great year. So here we go, I am grateful for.....

My Family. This will always come first, and I am grateful to have them all with me, healthy and supportive as always.

My Friends. It doesn't matter where you live, so long as you are surrounded by people you love, who love you back. I am thankful for those who have made this transition to Seattle so enjoyable. 

My Job. I am so lucky to have the coolest job in the world. I love what I do and I work with the most wonderful people I have ever met. Very few people get to say that. 

ADELE. She pretty much single handedly got me through this year. 
My favorite song is actually One And Only, but there are no good live recordings of it out there.
Seattle. Thanks for taking me in when I most needed it.
