I’m sitting here in my parents’ kitchen in Portland, OR. My dad is hand grinding coffee beans for his morning cup. My mom is starting Thanksgiving prep, with a pecan pie already made on the counter. My husband and I are sitting at the breakfast bar, talking and waiting for our sleeping daughter to wake up. Life is pretty good.
I know life isn’t always this simple, and not everyone gets to sit in a warm kitchen with loved ones this morning. If no one has said this to you in a while, please hear me loud and clear – THANK YOU. Thank you for being you. For being here. For whatever you are doing or thinking right now. For your contribution to this world. Whether you know it or not, you HAVE made, ARE making and WILL make a contribution to this amazing, crazy, chaotic and beautiful world.
Thank you for being here, right now, reading this words, and supporting my fun little labor of love that is Pilates Happy Hour. I would like to give back in so many ways, so today please accept my very large and loving THANK YOU and also a little giveaway coming the first two weeks of December!
I am so proud to be a part of the Cory Vines family as a Trailblazer, and they have generously offered to gift a $100 certificate for a lucky reader to use towards their great athletic clothing! Starting December 1, we will hold a 12 Days of Holiday Gratitude Instagram Photo Contest. Please follow us on Instagram @PilatesHappyHour to join in and gain a chance to win! I’ll be announcing the winner and sending out the gift certificate on Monday, December 15.
Happy Thanksgiving and may you have a wonderful and warm day and holiday season!
