Candace’s Thanksgiving Apron

A few things I’m thankful for this year:

– Grandmothers who inspire me regularly to be better

– My little brother’s sense of humor

– My girlfriends. Nearby, far away, in other countries — I am blessed with great friendships. Thank you!

– My extended families who always make me feel like I’m one of their own clan

– Community work; feeling like my job has a greater purpose

– a church where I am accepted for exactly who I am

– a strengthening relationship with God

– being loved, loving, feeling the full spectrum of confusing emotions involved

– time and passion for creativity and art

Finny and her little farm; she makes me want to be better at just about everything

– Spending Christmas with my family on the beach in Mexico in a few weeks

– Friends who do great favors, like design my book cover

– Salty Senor, for always making me giggle

– And the superficial: Dior Addict mascara, Tory Burch flats, great jeans, t-shirts, all things Target, Changing Hands Bookstore, my bike, swimming, pumpkin cookies/bars/pie, Sweet Republic Ice Cream, dark chocolate, a good glass of wine, bowling, Zappos.com, great stationery, NPR, REI, and Bumble and Bumble thickening hair spray.

Happy Thanskgiving weekend to you and your family!

With love,
