Have you thought about what you are thankful for this year?

I'm thankful for a sweet husband who puts up with my long honey-do list with a smile and a big hug.

I'm thankful for two goofy puppies who melt my heart even while digging up our backyard.

I'm thankful for a family who likes nothing more than to spend our evenings on the phone with one another, discussing my brother's latest basketball game and our next home improvement projects.

I'm thankful for another family who has accepted me into their inner circle with open arms, even though my white-girl taste buds can't take the heat!

I'm thankful for a best friend who doesn't mind when I send her emails about Craigslist treasures and who is always ready to critique the red carpet dresses with me.

I'm thankful for legs that can boot a kickball and help me run to first base, arms that can carry my groceries (all in one trip!) and eyes that let me see all of the beautiful things God has created.  

I'm thankful for Blue Bell ice cream sandwiches, frozen grapes and extra virgin olive oil.

And I'm thankful for this blog that allows me to connect with awesome people all over the country through a shared love of the home!

Friends, what are you thankful for during this holiday week?
