Soups & Sweet Treat 11.29.12

Thanksgiving  is over.  A popular thing throughout the month, especially on Facebook, is sharing a daily “I am thankful for…”  I love this idea but when faced with coming up with one thing, once a day, that I am thankful for I usually fail.  There are so many things that I am thankful for both big and small.  As a way to wrap up my Thanks, I am going to attempt to acknowledge SOME of the things that make my life rich here….

Being an American voting-living in Vermont-living in Burlington – the change of seasons and the variety of light that accompanies the change-the smell of the air on a cold November morning -my house-my children (even when they fight, tantrum, and call my name WAY too much)- my husband that makes me laugh every day -my pets- my extended family-my friends-my garden- local food-music-Breaking Bad, Mad Men & Downton Abbey-the release of the last Twilight movie (harnessing my inner teenager)- and the list goes on and on and on.  It is really hard to list all of the things that I am thankful for.  Maybe if I did it once a day for 365 days I could nail them all?!

Oh…one more thing that I am really thankful for?  All of you that order meals and soup on a weekly basis.  You all make it possible for me to do what I love to do on a weekly basis!  For that I am EXTREMELY THANKFUL!

Now on to the soups…
