Happy Turkey Day, Everyone!!!

I can't believe it is Thanksgiving time again, where does the time go? :)

Last year, I joined the lovely Sheila, from The FailteHouse, and posted a Thankful Thanksgiving Thursday post.  Since then, I have fallen in love with the concept behind it, and want to continue the tradition.

So, here I am with all of mine from this past year, which taught me so, so much!
(image via my Instagram)
 • Getting caught in an unexpected NYC Winter Wonderland with great company.

 • The supportive, kind and wonderful friends I've made in Blogland, new and old.

 • Moving back to the city that holds my heart.

 • My truly incredible family.

 My job with lots of fun, positive, personality-filled people, and all the opportunities it's given me.

 • Miss Jenny's hospitality, shepherds pie and all of our city and Brooklyn Heights adventures.

 • Residual checks, from past TV shows I worked on in LA, rolling in.

 • Thanksgiving with my entire family, enjoying yummy cheese, food and cocktails.

 • The smile, patience, respect, acceptance, comfort and calm he always brings into my life.

 • A lovely glass of red wine shared in great company in the evening.

 • All that Hurricane Sandy taught me, the togetherness it brought and appreciation it enforced.

 • Getting to see the Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular this holiday season.

 • Starbucks peppermint mocha holiday cups and Coffee-mate peppermint mocha creamer.

Road trips with my extraordinary dad and with the family.

Handwritten thank yous, from children in Brooklyn, for the school supplies my donation gave them.

 • Local NYC delis, and the super friendly deli men who look out for me.

 • The new friends I've made in the city.

 • The possibility and world travel ahead for me.

 • My little fashion blog and all the opportunities and wonderful things it has opened up for me.

 • My Rioni travel tote, which has yet to let me down.

 • Spicy Tuna Crunch Roll from OZU Sushi in Brooklyn Heights.

 • Giving up excessive Diet Coke drinking and enjoying fresh water instead.

 • Pinterest inspiration, DIY and crafty projects, ideas and organization.

 • Instagram, oh how I heart thee, and the ease of documenting my life in pictures.

 • Being curled up next to a cozy fire, especially when there is no power or heat.

 • The free, hot showers the YMCA provides during Hurricane Sandy.

 • Colorful Brooklyn Heights sunsets.

• The importance of kindness and listening to your heart.

My nephews, their love, big hearts and all they continue to teach me.
