On the menu: Sweet Potato Tart
Shall we keep riding the truth train for another post? Let’s shall. Lest you think my existence has been consumed with the hellhole that is graduate school, I’d like to show you how wonderful my life is beyond that. I have so, so much to be thankful for.
My family. Being the big sister has always been the core of my identity, and being away from my siblings hurts this holiday. They are an extraordinary bunch, and I am so thankful for them. They motivate and inspire me every day.
My momma. What a woman. She is my hero. I am thankful for how hard she has worked to get me where I am today, and I’m thankful for all the fun times we’ve had along the way.
My grandparents. I admire them for so many reasons, and I am thankful to have them in my life.
This guy. I am so thankful to have found a love like this.
Best friends. These ladies are way too far away, but I think of them every day. Dance parties aren’t the same without them, but we get by with phone calls, emails, and Facebook. Mad love to you girls. I am so thankful for you.
Today it’s just me and the cat. We’re having turkey, stuffing, Brussels sprouts, and a sweet potato tart. I’m thankful for that wacky cat.
I’m also thankful for you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
