Gratitude

I can't tell you how thankful I have been these past ten months for the rocking chairs on my best friend's front porch, or for the jack-and-cokes her fiancee makes me, or for the fresh eggs they send home with me after each visit.
I'm thankful for my second family-- my two good friends and the wild and crazy boys who used to call me their nanny. We grill, we play, we laugh until it hurts. They give the. best. hugs.
I cherish the naps on my parents' couches. I am grateful for the text message love notes I get from my yoga teacher and friend, even though I haven't been to class in months. I am also thankful that my new roommate (an office intern from Germany) likes dogs, because Tater was staying regardless! Oh and did I mention he can cook?? Hallelujah!
