Oh Joy | Photo by Bonnie Tsang

I am thankful that my parents came to this country 38 years ago with only $600 to their name and the dream to start a new life in the States.

I am thankful that even while on welfare and living in student housing with a new baby, they worked hard, started their own business, and found the American dream. I learned so much about starting something from nothing and going after what you want through them.

I am thankful to have a husband who is my biggest supporter, who inspires me to be the best version of myself, and who can laugh with me on a daily basis.

I am thankful to have friends who inspire with their creativity and talent, friends that remind me that it's okay not to have it all figured out, and friends in which we can always pick up where we left off like no time has passed.

I am thankful to have a child—one that delights me daily and makes me appreciate the simple moments of life (and makes me more aware of my actions) thanks to her curiosity and determination.

I am thankful to have a job that I love—even if most people don't really understand what I do.

I am thankful for you and that you care to visit my little place on the internet, otherwise this whole blogging thing wouldn't nearly be as fun without you.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving for those of you who are celebrating! I'd love to hear what you're thankful for this year. And, I'll see you back here on Monday after a little rest and a whole lot of eating...

{Thanks Bonnie for the photo!}
