"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."  ~G.K. Chesterton

To my daughter, who makes me rise in the morning before the sun because she is my sunrise; who laughs at me when she thinks my hair looks funny; who cries with me when she has made me too tired to go on.

To my husband, who cannot resist stealing smooches and buying me secret presents from online sales; whose strong hand holds me up and holds my daughter when all will to be a mommy has left me; who eats my varied cooking experiments with enthusiasm; who loves me.

To us, this little family, scrappy and cute, nutty and kind, at our best and at our worst.

I am thankful to them, and for much more.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your familY!
