A Thankful Post

turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet potato crisp, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, green beans, carrots with basil, olives, asparagus, crescent roll, butternut squash and turnip...a little bit of everything

This Thanksgiving I am most thankful for everything I missed while I was in Europe:

  • Electric toothbrush
  • Clothes Dryer
  • Chai lattes
  • Cafes (none in the little pueblo!)
  • Pizza
  • Sushi
  • Antonio's, Bueno y Sano, Fresh Side, Sierra Grille...all my favorite places to eat here.
  • Hulu
  • Pandora
  • Woodstove
  • Dogs
  • Ben 

 

the oh-so-fast! Basil and me

I am also immensely thankful for the memories and experience that are tied to the list of things that I now miss about being in Europe:

  • The pueblo's castle
  • My bedroom's terrace and view
  • Rich architecture
  • Old stonework
  • Fresh sqeezed orange juice
  • Good chocolate
  • Cheap wine
  • Cheap local produce and meats
  • Tapas (free food in the bars! come on!)
  • The newness of everything
  • Green sprouts of wheat 
  • Getting around by bike

a tell-tale sign that I am no longer in Spain
