Happy Thanksgiving! Let me share 88 Things I Love.

Happy Thanksgiving! How is it possible Thanksgiving is this week already? Man time is sure flying. Holiday posts are as much of a tradition around here as they are at other blogs. It's a tradition I enjoy. I like sharing some of us and learning about others by reading other holiday blog posts. I think these types of blogs help humanize the face behind the company.

In reading Thanksgiving blogs, I was inspired by my friend Gini Dietrich's post on SpinSucks yesterday, "The 82 Things I Love". She got the idea from Judy Dunns edition "Can You Name 99 Things You Love in 10 Minutes". It was a big hit on SpinSucks and I told Gini I was going to borrow it for this Thanksgivings blog edition. Before I start on my list, I would like to share our Thanksgiving traditions.

Thanksgiving we spend at my brother-in-law's house. He is a fabulous cook and really enjoys supplying the feast. I enjoy helping him in the kitchen and sharing a bottle of wine with him. Our kids enjoy accompanying him to deliver Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless. We enjoy driving past Best Buy and Target on our way home to see the lines of people outside the door in the cold (although with stores opening at 6 pm Thanksgiving, that tradition won't happen this year). We begin preparing our house for Christmas. We don't do Black Friday in-store shopping. We decorate our tree instead and have Chinese takeout for dinner.

Now, onto my list. I set a timer for 10 minutes, and I came up with 88 things. Without further adieu, here they are:
