thanksgiving is already here

November 26, 2008 |  Category:   holidays life the biz


We’re at our thanksgiving destination already (just my mom’s house) and Mark finally gets to relax. Never mind that it will be hectic again once we get back to Brooklyn in a few days as we dive into holiday orders, but it’s sort of amazing that he has *nothing* to do at the moment. Not even watching the kids as my dad is playing with them. He may even write a post or 2 in the next few days.

We’ve got a lot to be thankful for this year. I’m thankful that I am busy with work (and more is coming in, which is making my head spin, but seems crazy to turn anything down right now). We’re thankful for our good health (but not our health insurance conundrum), for our family, friends and our funny, cute, amazing kids. We’re really thankful that the business we started just 8 months ago has gone farther than we ever imagined and that we’ve managed to turn unemployment into an opportunity and a dream that is actually profitable the first year. But most of all, we are thankful to all of you who have given us encouragement through comments and emails, supported our business (and our family) through orders, and for coming to our little corner of the web again and again. It has been nice getting to know you guys a little bit – the internet is amazing in that way, isn’t it? Thank you.

    Happy Thanksgiving! Seeing your post just gave me the first pang of homesickness I’ve had for awhile. I lamed out and didn’t do anything for Thanksgiving. We had a chicken adobo (from the Philippines) dinner so at least it’s poultry! Brrrr, NYC looks so cold in your photos.
