So Very Thankful

So, this is a couple days late, but I am so thankful for so many things.
I was planning on writing this article on Thanksgiving, but I got too busy spending time with all of the things I'm thankful for, and had no time to write.

So, as I inhale leftover stuffing and green bean casserole, sipping champagne and watching Netflix, I'm thinking about how I am TRULY endlessly grateful for COUNTLESS things this year.

I'm thankful for everything from stuffing, to Art, to canned Sofia, to honesty, to the pilot of modern family. I'm thankful for every second with my phenomenal parents to seeing every Twilight movie with my best friend. 
I'm thankful for races and dinners with Jake's family, and striped shirts, accomplishing goals, and bloody mary's with my surrogate sister.
I'm thankful for all my friends who are off doing incredible things from swing dancing in Ireland to helping people heal to attending Law School to making movies, music, plays, and magic in everyday life.
I'm thankful for Jake - the most amazing boy a girl could ask for.
I'm thankful for day drinking and iPhones and freedom of speech. For PJ's, and vintage shops, and novels, and being able to successfully make rent.
I'm thankful for health, and love, and satchels, and black and white movies. For the countless people who inspire me every day of my life, the ones I know and the ones I dream to know. 
I'm thankful that I surround myself with people who are perfect ingredients.  
I'm grateful for pizza and curling irons and photography and musicals. For black tights and health insurance and democracy and kindness.
I insanely appreciate fresh flowers and the Obamas and nail art and friends who fill my entire living room with balloons. I'm indebted to my grandparents and cousins and aunts and uncles for helping me believe in family and loyalty and board games. 
I couldn't be happier about the existence of dinner parties, and holidays, creativity, girl power and travel. For Disney cartoons, and new wave music, and different cultures, the internet, and having an incredible job.
I'm thankful for all of you readers, whoever you may be, for thinking I have something to say. (Or even if you don't, thanks for reading anyway. You guys rock.)
I'm so grateful for hope and fairy tales and magic and silver linings and happy endings - all of which I truly believe exist.
But most of all - I am grateful that I have THOUSANDS of things to be SO SO grateful for. 
I wish you all the happiest of holidays, and limitless things to be thankful for.
