    Thanks for posting! I like seeing pics of your family, even though I don’t know you :) I hope y’all have a great Thanksgiving!
    I’m thankful for good friends, spending time with my family, and learning to see the blessings in the little things of everyday life.

    @Heather, Oh, Heather! I am with you on seeing the blessings in the small things. My favorite quote is from Mother Teresa – “You can do no great things, only small things with great love.” I try to live my life that way. I know I fall short, but I try.

    Blessing to you and your family over the holiday season!
    Hugs,
    Amy

    How adorable is that Nate?! And you and Joe are pretty darned cute, too. ;-) Your list covers so much of what I’m grateful for, and more. My life would not be what it is today without my blog, blog readers, and friends I’ve made because of it–and that includes YOU, of course! So happy that we met over the internet, and so glad that you are a part of my life. Wishing you three the happiest of Thanksgivings! Hugs and love–Ricki xo

    @Ricki, You have always been so special to me, Ricki! Maybe I was meant to be a Canadian?? Would love to be closer to you and Maggie.

    Sending much love up to you and your family for a lovely holiday season!

    Hi Amy,
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your gorgeous family! Thanks for inspiring so many of us readers. I remember when I first came across your blog 18 months ago and what you wrote made me realise that health my issues were similar to yours and that wheat and sugar were the culprit.
    So Im grateful for your blog and all the new recipes you share with us. :) xx

    @Clare, I’m smiling ear to ear, Claire! I am glad you have found a way of eating that works for you. It is a difficult road when you don’t know what’s going on.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    lovely pictures, how Nate’s growing:) Have a great Thanksgiving

    I’m grateful for the love of a good man, a healthy family, good friends, the new choir, my vegetable garden and so much more!

    @christine, Yes, Nate is growing. He turned 9 months yesterday. I cant believe it.

    Yea for a healthy vegetable garden! (All the others are great too…that’s just the one on your list that I can never get right.)

    Do you compost? Maybe I need to start doing that.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    @Amy, 9 months already!!! I envy you:)
    I compost all my non-cooked kitchen waste, and all the clippings from the garden – then it all goes back into the soil a year later to enrich it – totally organic fruit and vegetables, I love it:) I grew 21 varieties of tomatoes this year, delicious x

    Love the photos and your list. My sister’s baby is just about the same age as your Nate and I see from watching her how hard it is on her to have to leave for work every Monday. I’m so glad you’re able to stay home and make your career work in the best way for you and your family.

    Amy Reply:

    @Iris, Happy Thanksgiving, Iris!! I am sure it is so hard on your sister…I can’t imagine. I have really cut back so much and started saying NO on a regular basis because I just can’t do it all. It was difficult at first because I’d worked really hard to open up certain career avenues but I am at peace with it now. I don’t want to miss Nate’s life. I am grateful that today I can stay home. It is such a blessing.

    How was your Thanksgiving? Did everyone swoon over the food you made?

    xoxo,
    Amy

    He really is THAT cute. I am not much of a baby-lover and tend to think they all look kind of the same so take it as a real compliment when I say HE IS SO CUTE. He just oozes personality and his little face makes me want to smooch his cheeks off. Ouch, I think my ovary just released like 10 eggs or something, lol…..See what he does to people with that cuteness!!!???!!!! He could be a baby model.
