Thankful things

November 21, 2010 in Food Porn, Meta Talk

Some years Thanksgiving seems to float in, stays for a vague day of pointless overeating, and then slips away into dim memories. This year I feel genuinely thankful for so many things.

Wild Turkeys!

I am profoundly thankful for:

  • the health of my children
  • their hard work this year in school
  • the 4 yo progressing so very much with his ASD challenges
  • the 14 yo getting student of the quarter in her first year of high school as she rose to so many challenges
  • the 7 yo for being so explosively creative and sweet and spicy
  • the DH getting a job (saving the bacon just in time) but not only that, getting a job that is PERFECT for him, that he loves, and his work people love him!


In the sphere of blogging it has been an interesting year. As always, BlogHer has been a source of inspiration and community. They have given me many opportunities to review and giveaway food related things.

I got to know MyBlogSpark this year and I can not say enough nice things about them. Goodness, have I had some fun with their activities! I got hooked up with and was whisked off to Miami to meet a whole “new to me” world of latina/o bloggers. After that I was invited to General Mills up in Minnesota and got to meet a whole other world of people who are passionate, friendly, knowledgable and devoted to food – both the bloggers and the people at General Mills / Betty Crocker. They treated us bloggers to such a fantastic time, its hard to explain how welcomed and pampered I felt!

As always I am so thankful to get to know the people who visit my blog, it makes it all worth it.

I am looking forward to the holiday food season and then the new year. What new blogging horizons await?

Its my hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
