We are just going to ignore the fact that I skipped yesterday. Ok? Ok.

That was the best vacation I have ever experienced. 'Twas epic. Wow.  I will totally post pictures...later...when I'm not so exhausted. :) However, even with how much fun it was, I must say that it feels nice to be home and in my own bed.

So today I'm thankful that I have a place to call home.

I'm also thankful for the unyielding support of those closest to me, when I chance to be having a rough time... especially my mom and Ashley. I love you both, dearly :)

I'm thankful for airplanes.

I'm thankful for grocery stores.

I'm thankful for socks.

And finally, I'm thankful for the fact that I had an entire week to spend with Kennedy- we had such a great time and had some much-needed mommy-daughter bonding moments :)

Wow, I was sooo behind on your blog. And there was much to catch up on. Keep it up and you are going to have to change your title :o)

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sorry I'm late. If I was a facebooker, I would have wished you a happy day on your actual special day. I hope it was special, you deserve it.

Hawaii?! Again?! I swear you just went there, what, twice last year? Sheesh. You go girl. I am quite jealous that you got to #1) go again and #2) take Kennedy. I have been wanting to take my kids to Cozumel since we went there almost two years ago. Sigh. Someday.

My favorite color is yellow. And I think soap operas are dumb too.

I have much to be thankful for this year, but most of all I am thankful for modern medicine and the hope that it can help my Dad.

Great posts. I'm sure I am forgetting something that I was going to say. Oh well. I'll be back again soon!

So glad we could be in Hawaii with you, Ashley. Glad you had a great birthday and could have some bonding time with Kennedy.

Today, I'm thankful for Asian hospitality, and for cheap food in Penang, Malaysia.

I am grateful to read all your gratitude posts. :) They remind me of things I am grateful for, and the more I am grateful for the happier I am. I am also grateful to be in our new homebase and be done with airports for a few months.

Love you dearly too, baby.

And when you spend the whole day traveling in an airplane, it's ok to skip your blog post that day :)

I really loved that you got so many mommy-daughter bonding moments with Kennedy. You both needed it... glad I got some too : )
