countdown to thanksgiving...

photo: our labor of love

with thanksgiving happening next thursday (what?) i am inspired to share what i am thankful for leading up to the big day.

today i am thankful for:
-this man and child i call my family. i feel very loved and at peace that i've found the perfect partner to raise a family with. this little girl has me simultaneously smitten and bewildered. sometimes i look at her and still can't believe she's real.
-chai lattes that i make out of chai tea, almond milk, and a smidge of raw honey. about as close as i'll get to my beloved cafe. got any favorite teas you want to share with me? working on creating a new ritual.
-running. i love the experience of just going, going, going and how it makes me feel after. it's been really helping me work through some stress in my life. i really love this c25k app that helps me get there. would also love runner expertise on fitting it in with it getting dark so early.
-this gratitude journal to fill with happy thoughts to look at when i'm feeling extra grumpy. (also available here.)

Did you ever post that chai latte recipe? I guess it's probably just as it sounds. Chai Tea, steamed almond milk, raw honey?

AH. you guys are too nice! thanks for all of the sweet words.

re: jessica it's not really a recipe. i don't even steam the milk, i just pour it in there. steamed milk would be really yummy though!

Oh, I love this picture of your family!! How I love the joy that just jumps off the screen. I'm thankful for my mate and my little family, too. Thankful for this new season and adventure the Lord has led us on and how He's providing along the way.
