Today’s 30 days of Thankful post is with much thanks to Circus Xtreme from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
Last night, I got to watch our kids’ eyes light up left and right. We joined other families in an exclusive backstage event before Circus Xtreme kicked off their four-day stay in Pittsburgh and then enjoyed opening night together as a family (for the first time ever).
It’s day 3 of 30 days of thankful. As I sat with Greg last night (watching game 7 of the World Series), I scrolled mindlessly through my Facebook feed and phone photos. I had a few “memory moments” as I did, and for these today I am thankful.
Greg and I met 9 years ago yesterday, at (a failed attempt at) a bonfire with Diet Coke and Mentos rockets. Back then, Nurin had long hair and I drove a convertible.
It’s November, which for many of us means it is 30 Days of Thankful. Follow along with me this month as I gather the things I am thankful for this year. Today, I’ll be talking about taking chances and the happiness it’s brought my way.
Last weekend, Arianna, Greg, and I got the flu shot. On Tuesday, right smack dab in the middle of dealing with Hurricane Sandy, the three of us started to sniffle.
We’ve gotten through the week with tissues, soup, blankets, and medicine. It should be no surprise, then, that today I am thankful for tissues. Especially when you’ve gone the TP route on a tender nose, tissues are a life-saver.
Today begins NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and also the month of Thanksgiving, aka Thirty Days of Thankful on Facebook.
I’ve decided to join along in the fun and will bring you my normal posts but try to add in a thankful thing every day. My friend Suzie did this via a scrapbook last year, and it was so much fun to watch. Hope you enjoy my thankful moments.
