My personal thanksgiving

Today is my birthday. Birthdays, unless they are big ones (like last year's), have for a long time been less about parties, cake, and presents and more about quiet reflection for me. When I lived in CA, Matthew and I would spend my birthday quietly at the beach. Today's not so much beach weather here in Milwaukee, it's more misty memory weather. So I wanted to make a list of people I am thankful for.

1. My husband - who despite not being perfect, is the perfect husband.
2. My mother - who is my best friend.
3. My father - who is an eternal optimist.
4. My sisters and my girflfriends -  I don't see them enough, call them enough, tell them enough - I love them
5. My dog - who is the best damn dog a girl could ever want
6. My family
7. Anyone who still reads my blog after such neglect and such self-indulgance
