For my husband, whom I have loved for 10 years, who knows me better than anyone else in this world.
For living in Switzerland, and the gorgeous home in which we live here.
For the local friends I have made.
For all the family and friends that we miss back home.
For this child that I am carrying and all the joy he already brings into our lives.
For the ease this pregnancy has been graced with (thus far).
For all the places we have traveled to and seen this year.
For all these silly material things we can spend money on without worrying too much.
For our good health.
For a good life.
For all these things, and so much more, I give thanks.
I am making a pumpkin pie this morning that I will then take in to Zach's work, since most of his coworkers are European and therefore have most likely not experienced this utter yummy goodness yet. I even found a can of whipped cream to go with it.
Tonight I'd thought of making a small Turkey Day meal for just the 2 of us, but then we got an invite by Hillary to go to their apartment to watch the football game since they have the Yahoo sports package. Unfortunately, Dallas is the late game, not starting here till... 10pm-ish? I know Zach's disappointed about that. But at least he'll get to watch some proper American football, and get to hang out with new friends. =)
Sunday I've organized a bit of a Thanksgiving pot-luck with some friends. Unfortunately, both Zach and I are pretty intimidated by the idea of trying to cook a turkey ourselves, so we might opt for a different kind of meat (I know, this is sacrilege...) but I will probably also make pumpkin bread for dessert, and if I can find another can of evaporated milk at the American Market on Friday then I'll make another pumpkin pie, too. Since, really, we all love the turkey, but isn't pumpkin pie the real star of Thanksgiving? ; )
