Chris and I have very happily escaped Massachusetts and are in Maine for the Thanksgiving holiday until Sunday. It's glorious knowing that I have a full four days off, I really need the rest and the chance to sleep. I've so enjoyed reading your comments on thankfulness for the giveaway, and thought I would share with you what I'm thankful for this year:
I'm thankful for: Having Chris in my life. He makes me a happier and calmer person, and is so supportive of my personal goals- even when they change by the week. and sometimes day by day. He's also been incredibly patient with the whole blog-obsession-thing.
I'm thankful for: Let's face it, you all know I love my cats and have a tendency to dork out over them. The one on the right is sitting on my lap as I type this, and occasionally will look up at me and lean closer, and I'm dying over it. They're the best cats and I love seeing how much they care for each other (they cuddled like that on Sunday for about three hours).
I'm thankful for: Having a supportive and creative family. My brother moved to Colorado this summer and will be returning in December, we're all so excited to see him again!

I'm thankful for: Having inspiring ladies in my life! These girls are incredible and I'm so happy I've gotten to know Jen and Punky over the past year. (photo from last Friday's Swap by Adam Towner)
I'm thankful for: living in a great city. I've so enjoyed commuting to Boston these past few months, but one thing I've realized is that I'm perfectly happy living outside of it! The small city I live in is perfect and I love the community that I'm surrounded by.

I am also thankful for the opportunities that this blog has created, and for YOU, my amazing readers! Without you, there would still be a blog, but it would be a quieter and lonely place, I love hearing your thoughts, and inspirations everyday.

I'm off to go eat pumpkin pie (mmm!), but I want to know, what are YOU thankful for this year?

I am, of course, thankful for friends, family and Oakland. But I am also so thankful for all the bloggers who have inspired me, wowed me, and motivated me to believe that I too could share my love of fashion with the world wide web :)
Happy Thanksgiving yall!

I'm thankful for my supportive and understanding boyfriend, who doesn't complain when I can't see him because I have to do university work and actual paid work, even though we both miss each other something chronic. I'm thankful for getting the paid work, which I love. I'm thankful for the new friends I've made this year through doing my PhD. I'm mega thankful for my continuing friendship with my best friend, who is spending a year half the world away but we're still as close as ever. And I'm thankful for the shiny new bike that I got in the Spring, it's totally changed my life and I now cycle everywhere!

That was fun, I wish we had Thanksgiving in the UK. I tried to get my boyfriend to make me a Thanksgiving dinner, but instead we just went to the supermarket and bought pizza and chips. :)
