It seems like these last few months have been a whirlwind. Like seriously, on my "to do" list I still have not crossed off buy books, let's talk about how the semester ends in 2 weeks. Actually let's not. Even though my free time is sparse these days it would be wrong of me not to publicly express my gratitude for some real important things. Gratitude lists in years past have included lots of silly things, like cookies and sweat pants, but more recently I've realized that at the end of the day cookies just make me fat and sweat pants...well they don't really help in that department either. Really the things to recognize are the things that don't go anywhere. The things that will rub your feet after a long day in the kitchen. The things that pick you up when you're certain your at your breaking point. The things that make you feel like you matter. Those are the things worthy of my gratitude list this year.
...for a husband that gets me on a level that no one else does, and loves me more than I ever thought possible.
...for this talent that has come out of what seems like no where. Culinary school has been one of the greatest things I could have ever done for myself.
...for my family. The amount of love and support that exists between these people makes me feel whole and I'm so glad I get to call them mine.
