Originally today’s recommended blogging topic from BlogHer was When was the last time that you cried? Why?
Maybe they didn’t think about it being Thanksgiving in the US or maybe they did think about it but didn’t want to exclude non-US bloggers. Either way, I didn’t feel that it was a good topic for Thanksgiving.
I’ll keep it simple today, as I am spending this day with my husband’s family in Detroit. Starting the first of November, I began posting on Twitter and Facebook something that I am thankful for every day. I hadn’t posted them here because that would be triplicating the same post. However, in keeping with simplicity, I am going to list them here in this post. I’ll continue to update this post the remaining days of the month, as well.

Tell me what makes you thankful.During the month of November, I am participating in the National Blog Posting Month, also known as NaBloPoMo, hosted by BlogHer. Most likely I am following these suggested prompts, but I might just get crazy and change things up every once in a while. I’m one wild and crazy gal!
