but yet i have so much!

its my first thanksgiving away from home. wierd how i dont really care then....tis just a week off of school for me ya know? but i guess, as the days are being counted down until i go home, a holiday can really take its toll! this thanksgiving is soooo odd. i mean another state is one thing but another country? continent? wow....its so hard to find things that are normal for everyday eating let alone special occasion foods! at least sweet potatos are here!
anyway heres my "thankful list" for this year
the opportunity ive had to be in London and meet wonderful people and make new friends and help old friendships blossom
fruit juice
clinique happy heart
innumerable movies and books
girl talks
being able to sing songs (no matter how weird and how bad i sing) at the top of my lungs or while doing odd dances
christmas songs

oy there are so many more! our thanksgiving "feast" begins in about one hour. ive made sweet potato casserole and cant wait to eat it! im thankful for that too! Thanksgiving in London is much different of course, but the part where we are a family...have been since about sept 20 lol and we are together. thats whats important!

miss you all sooooo much! you should comment and tell me what YOU are thankful for...thats a good idea i think


  1. Courtney, I am thankful to have known you this long, for watching you grow into the beautiful, thoughtful, gracious person you are, for your blogs and your pictures and your stories of a place I have never been.

    I am also thankful for the unconditional love of an amazing God, the love of family and friends and blessings to numerous to count.

    Have a great Thanksgiving Day!
