1. Thanksgiving is coming this Thursday, and everyone comes here to eat. I hope that we create a fun, relaxing place where our families and friends can come together to enjoy each other's company and eat really good food. Our townhouse is far from perfect, but we're slowly getting it fixed up the way we like it. And I like to plan and organize, so that helps the meal come together. We've been doing this a couple of years now, and I think we're starting to get the hang of it. It makes me happy to bring people together and feed them good food before sending them back out into the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to create family holiday meals, and it makes me happy.
2. My boyfriend is an amazing man. He is kind and supportive, smart and funny, and I am lucky beyond measure that he has chosen me. Being home with him, I feel safe and loved and like I can recover from the worst that the world has thrown at me. He makes me very happy.
3. Chocolate pudding, pre-made, in the refrigerated cups. Those things can fix a multitude of problems and stresses.
