Thankful, in no particular order: Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style; a husband who is more patient, better-mannered and looks better in jeans than I do (and who will no doubt snerk because I mentioned Tim Gunn first); a sunny apartment; all 273 comments on my mom’s apple cake; a family that laughs their faces off when I tell them about our late night underbed horror story; the Flying Spaghetti Monster; in-laws that fulfill not a single in-law cliche; artichokes; that I get to do work I like, for people I like; a passport with a lot of stamps on it; bourbon; a new neighbor around the corner I can actually borrow a tart pan from in a pinch; Google Docs; this new print we are framing that makes me giggle every time I see it; January 20th; a coffee shop steps away that neither burns the coffee nor considers a 16-ounce tanker a “small”; the two slices of Poilane bread left in the freezer from our house guests; that I get to call editing photos of apple peels “work”; the scent of mingling of tree vendors and roasted cashews in New York right now; the relief realizing that I haven’t grown “out of” liking to crunch leaves and cut paper snowflakes; the RUB t-shirts that say “Best butt in town!”. And you.
