Today I am thankful for:

  • Friendship – I am so blessed to have people in my life who “get” me and love me anyway :)
  • Smart Phones – When I really take the time to think about it, I am in awe of these tiny computers we carry around with us 24/7.  I remember before we moved to Italy one of my clients had a Palm Treo. (remember those?) It was so cool! I wanted one so bad but it was out of my price range.  I couldn’t fathom spending hundreds of dollars on a cell phone. Now, just six years later, almost every phone can surf the web and send emails – and that is on the most simple of flip phones. The rest of us carry mini computers that double as (really good) pocket cameras with apps that can do just about everything. Incredible!
  • Limoncello – Les and I started a batch of Limoncello before deployment last year.  The peels (from the lemons pictured above) infused in vodka for a few months and then we put the infused vodka in the back of the cupboard.  Today I pulled it out, made the simple syrup and finished our Limoncello.  I forgot how much I loved this stuff! So good!

What are you thankful for today?
