Every Reason to be Thankful
As we head towards Thanksgiving, I have every reason to be thankful. I will remember all that I’m thankful for today, every day, and for many days to come…
Years ago I started dreaming about writing my own book. At the time it was just something I started fantasizing about from one of many, many items on my bucket list. Then, in 2009, I revisited that dream and realized I might actually have something that I was passionate enough to write about: food, entertaining, and event planning. Now I’m less than a year from seeing my book in hard copy.
A week ago, during the final round of the book photo shoots I was surrounded by 25 different food and drink items, making them, taking pictures of them, and preparing each of them for this project. At this very moment, I figured out what this book was really all about. It has become much more than your average entertainment/cookbook…it’s about all the people who have inspired me. It’s about Tram, who has taken her own extraordinary journey to join me on mine. It’s about each photo that Caroline takes to make my words shoot to life. It’s about my husband who supports my every move. It’s about every colleague who shared their time and talent only because they believe in me. It’s about all the friends who have stepped in and supported me. And it’s about every person who will one day read my book and in turn take the final step of completion with me. For all this…I am thankful!
My schedule is extremely busy, packed full of deadlines and demands. But I have every reason to be thankful. Because although I have a 6 more months of this craziness, I also have this time to appreciate and be thankful for every person, known and unknown, who have helped me to accomplish one more dream.
