Thanksgiving 2009

This is a picture I snapped with my BlackBerry this morning in Dana Point before Rich and I did our traditional Thanksgiving beach walk. If you look closely, you can see Catalina Island in the distance! The temperature was a toasty 85ish!
For years while Rich's career took shape I desperately wanted to return to California, land of my childhood. My prayers were answered 13 years ago when Rich was offered a position with a new company out here. It is one of the very many, many things I am thankful for. We are very blessed.
+++Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.+++ Colossians 3:15

I love November. Why? Well, it is the month of my birthday. It's the month of Rich's birthday (he is one year and 2 days older than I!). It is a time to prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas, two of my absolute favorite times of the year. For me, these holidays are all about what is Really Important. I am proud to be a Christian.
Of course, I also really love all the decorating that will happen, not to mention the baking! This year, I will focus more on the decorating and less on the baking, however! Any baking I do needs to be beautifully packaged up and given away.
I am anxious for our SoCal weather to get cooler. We don't really have fall until December around here and the heat gets....well, boring after a while. Not that I am complaining, having lived in 7 different states with all types of climates going on! But a crisp, cool, fall day with leaves changing color and falling around me as I walk outside (note...NOT on a treadmill) is definitely in order about now. :)
