Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

I hope those of you celebrating are enjoying it with family, friends and/or those who simply fill your heart with joy!

Rosi, with whom I work, was so sweet to invite me and my parents to celebrate Thanksgiving at her place with all of her friends. 

We already had plans to go to our friend's restaurant in the city for a special celebration he is hosting, but I love how this holiday brings everyone together as a family, whether you are or not!  

In honor of Thanksgiving aka Turkey Day, I thought I would post a few of the things I am thankful for right now in my life.  

I have always known how fortunate I am in life, but it is days like today that remind me to take a moment and truly appreciate things and life, even the small moments, and tell those I care about how much I love them.

For what are you thankful?  Let me know in the comments below! :)

My extraordinary family who has been a wonderful, ongoing example of what love, support, patience and guidance truly is.

My role as aunt to 3 adorable and incredible nephews who inspire me to be a better person.

Childhood friends, who have never change, and with whom I've grown closer to than I thought possible since all being back in the same area for the first time since high school.

Trying new things this year to create my own opportunity and possibility.

Volunteering with 2nd graders in Harlem who have reminded me how fortunate I am and warmed my heart in unexpected moments.

Christmas music, which I can begin playing tomorrow, and this song that will be heard on repeat.

Peppermint mochas from Starbucks, they bring a little joyful treat in a cup.

Twinkle lights, which glow during the holidays and simply make me happy.

Kenny, our maintenance man and garbage guy, with whom I shared a lovely conversation yesterday, after passing him in the hallway heading to do laundry, he left me inspired. 

New York City, which will always hold a piece of my heart no matter how short or long a time I stay, it strengthens and teaches me daily, and keeps things real through all the ups and downs.

Hope, something I'm feeling more of lately, while remembering to enjoy and live in the moment.
