So much to be thankful for in this picture...wine, candles, Christmas tree and snuggles with my honey.
I think the thing I am most thankful for this holiday season is luck. Or fate, or divine intervention, whatever you want to call it.
So much could have gone wrong this Thanksgiving, but karma was on my side!
First, I was so lucky to get Thanksgiving day and the day after off from work. That meant I could leave Pittsburgh around 5 or 6 when I got off work and arrive home around midnight.
But then the snow storm hit! Mama Avocado got really worried and decided she wanted to come to Hunker and drive home with me, since I have virtually no experience driving in the snow. This turned out to be a huge blessing, because by the time I got off work we were driving home in this!
It was a long and scary ride, but we made it and were greeted by my father and key lime cosmos! Not only was my mama driving me so much safer because of the snow, when we got back to Hunker after doing some grocery shopping, my brakes went right out! Had my mom not come to get me, they would have gone out while I was driving home in this. I cannot get over how thankful I am she decided to come!
Once we got to Syracuse, it was a fast 38 hours before we had to head back so I could work the weekend. We had tons of yummy food and drinks on Thanksgiving, and Friday I had some girlfriends over for brunch and mimosas! It was so much fun to see them, and I was almost homesick a little bit. Why must I have the most amazing friends so far away?!
Even though it was super quick, I am so thankful I was able to get home to see my friends and family. Here's to hoping I get to do the same for Christmas!
