So, Thanksgiving was different this year. Our first in Colorado. No driving to anyone's place, or cooking for anyone but us 5. It was nice & low key, but next year we may need to invite some guests.
The day after Thanksgiving we hung out in Estes Park with Richard's friend's family who invited us to a Christmas Parade there. It's been fun going to new things & maybe starting a few traditions. Although it was cold as heck waiting for the parade to start, & I was told this was a warm year, so we'll see if this becomes a "thing" for us.
Yesterday, Richard took me to this Indian tea place in Boulder, that I have wanted to go to for years. It's beautiful inside. I don't usually take pictures of food, but every now & then I have to. Oh, & they have also combined two of the best things...herbal tea & alcohol. When I saw "tea cocktails" on the menu, I knew I had found my place.
All in all, a good week & I even had time to do a little art.
Anyways, you know with Thanksgiving comes some reflection about life & the things we are blessed with. I am thankful for the people who are in my tribe, that love me for me, & I love them them in all their weirdness too. I'm grateful that here I am in another state, with my family & new things ahead of me. Last November, at this time, we had no clue moving was actually in our future. I guess I am also thankful for the hard junk that is changing me. It's hard to say that because if I could go back & change a lot of my choices in life, (& other's choice too) I would totally want to. But since I can't time travel & we don't get do overs, I am going to hope it's all for a reason & be thankful for it all. That's what I'm telling myself today at least :)
