Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It felt a little strange working on Thanksgiving but it was actually quite festive. One of my colleagues brought amazing pumpkin pie and I made "thankful cards" for everyone in my office. Nothing fancy- just a simple "I'm thankful to have you as my colleague because X". Kind of like when you are little and give valentine's day cards to your whole class. A lot of my colleagues aren't American and so don't celebrate Thanksgiving but I think the sentiment of being thankful is pretty universal.
Have so much to be thankful for this year....
being able to live in my favorite city in the whole world
the fact that one of my all time favorite people also lives in my favorite city
incredible friends all over
family (mom, dad, brother, sister, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles...)
DELICIOUS thanksgiving food- even in Hong Kong! Shout out to Blue Smoke BBQ. The manager is from Georgia and the food was absolutely delicious. They had all my favorites! Read my review here . Ok just delicious food in general.
living in a time where I am connected to all the people I love via awesome technology. thank you facebook, twitter, skype, googlevoice, email.
my teeny tiny but wonderful apartment
having so many visitors this year!
all the support for my WIP
being able to walk to work
the amazing hiking trails in Hong Kong
