Today I’m thankful for threats and bribery which made this photo possible.

And I’m thankful for kid cousins who exist to comfort each other when parents are Meany Mc-SMILE-NOW-Meanpantses.

And I’m thankful for grown-up cousins who welcome us and our threatening and our bribery to their home and insist no matter how many things we break that we’re wanted and loved.

And I’m thankful for the 17.5 hours I’ve been the mama of two teenagers during which I’ve committed zero homicides. So far, so good, Mama Me. And Happy Birthday, Ian!

And, finally, I’m thankful for YOU.

From our family to yours,
Happy Thanksgiving!


And, psst… heads up! Tune in tomorrow for Day One of three days of giveaways! That sort of thing is rare in these parts, but I finagled cool merchandise out of three lovely, creative ladies, so I get to pass it along to you. WOOHOO!


And what are YOU thankful for?
(The REAL list, please. Not the safe-for-dinner-table list.)
