I wish I had some pictures to share with you of our day. Some pictures of us lounging around all morning. Some pictures of the heaps of amazing food we consumed. Of the smiling faces of our friends who are basically our family. Of the four of us-- Iris, Eloise, Matt and I-- all rocking out on Beatles Rock Band. So much fun. It was a glorious day.
When I look back on this past year, there are gobs and gobs of things to be thankful for. In fact, I'm going to go ahead and call it as the best year our family has had. We're ending the year on an especially high note-- Matt is starting a new job in December. A job he is excited about. A job which will help him be home more with his family. It's looking to be really lovely. Our girls are both doing great. They both love school. They are full of health and energy and creativity and love and sass. I've enjoyed becoming a novelist, getting a handle on some health things, reading so much more and making our house a real, live home.
As we look ahead, there is nothing but excitement and positivity on the horizon for us. For that, I am truly thankful.
