The Weekly

Hi there. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did. With three Thanksgivings to attend (thank you everyone - we had a blast at all three), our stomachs & hearts were full this weekend. I love Thanksgiving. It is one of my favourite holidays. The leaves are turning colours, pumpkin pie flavouring is everywhere, the air is crisp, the sun is out .. sigh. And just being able to reflect on everything that we are thankful.

There is so much to be thankful for this year. I am so thankful for Bug. For how she has been growing, her character, the times I have had with her. I am so thankful. I am thankful for our new home. Our new friends. For connecting with old friends. For baby friends. For family. For hugs & kisses. Photographs. For coffee. For apple pie. For my husband who works so hard. For my friends who take me in on days I don't want to be alone. These are just some of the things I am thankful for. What are you thankful for? What are your Thanksgiving traditions?

This week my husband is working harder then ever (midterm week) so I will be hanging out with my friends the majority of the time. Bug's last day of swimming lessons is on Thursday so that will be sad, but she gets a sticker! Hooray! I have a ton of projects that need to get down before the second week of November, and then the projects of Christmas are sort of stressing me out. Not really stressed ... and I don't even know if stressed is the right word. I am in that lovely sense of needing to get things done with a time limit and kind of worried that I am in over my head, but loving every minute of that. Is there a word for that? Does you guys have anything you need to get done before Christmas?
