Category Archives: Monday Listicles
Half way into summer calls for a recap!
Since the last day of school we:
1. packed out all our things to be shipped to Japan
2. packed out the rest to be stored while we relocate to Japan
3. prepared and rented out our house
4. left the island, drove across USA visiting 11 states along the way ( and wrote all about it HERE )
5. settled into a little cabin Upstate NY for the rest of the summer
6. said goodbye to friends way too often
7. had Max and Bruce groomed twice
8. Facetimed with daddy ( who crossed the equator two times already ) twice
9. took many photos but not nearly enough
10. and since it is 10 minutes past midnight I can declare this a Monday Listicle! Now that’s something!!!
Thanksgiving couldn’t come fast enough.
It is by far my favorite holiday. Perhaps because it is the only one I did not grow up with and I took the time to learn about it and understand it as I became American. Perhaps it’s because it comes with pumpkin pie. But I really really love Thanksgiving.
This year it will be extra special because we are sharing it with our new found friend Karin who is like me Slovenian and with or good old friend Lily who is on her way back to visit us. So excited!
This list is the easiest one to write. There is so much to be thankful for. My family, my friends, our health, warm home, beautiful state we live in, chocolate. List could go on forever. So I will try to find just one special thing about others that I am thankful for every single day. Curious to see your lists. Happy Thanksgiving!
