Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Blogosphere, 

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and I have lots of things to be thankful for this year.  I have a lot of things to be thankful for most years, but this year, I especially have lots of things to be thankful for.  

Most of my friends and family are in good health, and we all have the basic necessities in life.

I moved back to San Francisco four months ago, for which I am extremely thankful.  I often randomly stop in the middle of my day–on my run to the pilates studio, while I’m shopping at the Farmer’s Market, buying a book at Kinokuniyia in Japan Town, driving across the Golden Gate Bridge with my friends, eating pumpkin muffins on my roof–and think to myself, “I can’t believe this is my life.”  I know I’ve worked really hard, but I also know that I’m really lucky.

I checked off a few more things on my 30 under 30 list this year: I ran a 10k, I moved back to San Francisco, and this past weekend, I took a trip down the California Coast (Highway One).  Even though I got carsick, it was an unforgettable experience. The views are absolutely breathtaking. Every Californian needs to do this trip at least once in their life.

Right now, I’m battling a cold, and I’m thankful for that. It’s a reminder of my mortality, and even though I have a need to feel productive or spend my time doing things that will move my life forward, I still need to take a break and rest once in a while.  So now I’m filling up on liquids, resting, and catching up on reading (& a couple episodes of Gossip Girl!)
