Feeling Thankful

Hi friends. Can I tell you how thankful I'm feeling right now? I'm thankful that it is Friday. I'm thankful that my flight was NOT one of the many that were canceled on Thursday after another snow storm hit New York. I'm thankful to be home.

There's no place like home...

But mostly, I 'm thankful for the amazing people in my life. My husband. My dear, dear friends. And the wonderful people I've met since I started blogging.

Beautiful Pam at our wedding 

I love that blogging connects you with people you would probably otherwise never meet. Kindred spirits across town and across the world. It's so rewarding. I have to especially thank two of my favorites from the blog world, Pam Robinson from Red Ticking and Patricia van Essche of PVE design.

Red Ticking last week - almost as beautiful as Pam 

Pam is a dear one, and I'm fortunate that our friendship began many years before our blogs. Her encouragement gave me a gentle push into the blog world, and she graciously gave me "The Stylish Blogger Award" earlier this week. As soon as I can get my jet-lagged brain to choose 10 of my new favorite blogs, I'll pay it forward (how can I choose just 10?) but I didn't want to wait any longer to thank sweet Pam.

Also, a huge thank you to the delightful Patricia, who took the time out from her full and busy life to meet me in New York for a fabulous lunch and a little sight seeing. In addition to being one of the most talented illustrators out there, Patricia is generous and wise, and has the kindest spirit. She inspires with her creativity and always brightens my day with her lovely posts. Getting to chat with her in real life was the highlight of my time in the Big Apple!

I'm thankful from head to toe (my illustration) 

A huge thanks to these lovely ladies. And thanks to all of you who have taken the time to stop by and read my random musings. I hope you all have a dreamy weekend!
