Thankful for You!

Thankful for You!
Thanksgiving is upon us. It’s a time to be grateful – outwardly and actively – for all the good stuff in our lives.I believe that being thankful and appreciative daily is the cornerstone of a happy and contented life. I try to be grateful for my health, my family and friends, my loving husband, my dogs and my home on a regular basis. But there is something else I am abundantly thankful for and that is my blog and its readers.

This Thanksgiving I want to give thanks for what and who blogging has brought into my life.

I am thankful for:

1. The meaningful friendships that were created through blogging that have brought me much happiness.

2. Having a space that’s all mine.

3. Using my creative skills to communicate thoughts and ideas.

4. Being able to interact with smart, funny, kind and interesting people all over the globe.

5. The many opportunities that blogging offers.

6. The unexpected surprises that come with blogging that always keep things interesting.

7. Learning what I have about technology, writing, photography, fashion, travel, beauty, aging and about myself from blogging and other blogs.

8. A supportive family, especially my husband and stepdaughter who both willingly take photos for me and politely listen – or do a good job pretending to listen – to me yammer on about blogging.

9. Finding my passion and living it!

10. You! For without your readership, your comments, your emails, or your just stopping quietly by for a quick glance, I would have given up blogging long ago.

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating today!
What are your Thanksgiving Day plans? Traveling somewhere, staying home or dining out?

My husband arrived home from the wild land fire Tuesday night, in plenty of time for the holiday.

Our Thanksgiving dinner will be at a restaurant this year as it’s just three of us – my husband, me and his father. It’s a little sad that we don’t have a big crowd to host at home this year, but I have to confess that I am doing a little Snoopy-style happy dance in my head each time I remember I won’t have to do any dishes or cook anything.

One last thing….

In case you didn’t already hear on our Facebook page, How I Wear My: Red has been postponed a few days. Jill and I both had some changes to our schedules that will keep us away from our laptops for a couple of days next week.

This might be good news for those of you who haven’t gotten around to taking photos yet – like me!

The new date is Monday, December 9th. Please send photos in by the afternoon of December 8th to be featured. Be sure to include a brief description of your look along with a link to your blog, if you have one, to

Jill and I can’t wait to see how you wear your RED!
xo, Adrienne

    Hi Adrienne,

    I look forward and am thankful for your posts…funny thing as I was making my dinner tonight I was thinking of you and how you have met up with so many bloggers. I am trying to organize a local blogger meet up for afternoon tea in the New Year,
    Good news that Bill is home safe and sound, you can share a Happy Thanksgiving together.

    Adrienne, I feel the same about blogging. It is a lot of work if you are dedicated to your blog but it is most rewarding and I never want to miss the contacts I have made worldwide within the short time since I started my blog.

    I work in an international environment with a big proportion of US colleagues who of course enjoy the holiday and long weekend – which means it is quiet for me in the office.
    Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner!

    Thank you, Adrienne. I look forward to your posts as well and find them very inspiring. Gosh, I think I might want to blog as well! I could join the Hostess for tea! Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Happy Thanksgiving A – wish you and Bill (and his dad) were here with us, but I’ll be thinking of you today and how grateful I am for your blog, and our friendship that came from it. xoxo

    I am thankful for you and your blog…I know that it takes time and effort to keep it going and your readers appreciate it. I have learned many things over the last few years and gained a friend too!

    It’s only going to be the four of us this year, I can’t remember the last time I actually made a turkey on Thanksgiving, because we usually end up going somewhere else and I only bring dessert or an appetizer. I forgot how much work it is to do the whole meal, and having one vegan in the family makes it a little more challenging!

    Enjoy your meal out and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Adrienne – hope you have a wonderful time with Bill and his dad. x

    Well, I must admit, I might just do a happy dance too if I had not had to cook and clean up for our Thanksgiving celebration. I did enjoy it but it is sure a whole lotta work. I should have enjoyed all the years that all I had to do was “show up” a whole lot more. Blessings!
