well our first week of the new year is over, and come next week, this whole "new year" thing will be old news.  it will just be plain ole "year."  it was fun while it lasted! :)

here's what i'm thankful for this week:
* sitting in on my first acting class {hopefully we'll get jobs so i can take them weekly}.
* warmth, sunshine, & a very welcomed break from the rain.
* the daffodils that the mr. brought me.
* fancy bread + butternut squash.
* getting organized.
* getting fun packages in the mail that contain my non-planner datebook.
* finally watching man on wire, and the heaps of inspiration from philippe petit's life.
* kcrw's fantastic music with which i can start the day.
* someone to keep me warm on cold nights.
* free ways to have fun.
* that the holidays are now officially over {love the holidays, but i am so ready to move on with life}.

{one final goodbye to our little christmas tree - you served us merrily, and now you shall keep us warm in the fire.}

what are you thankful for this week?


  1. I love the holidays too, but I'm also happy they are over. I love the great food during the holdidays, but I'm ready for something a bit lighter:)

  2. I'm thankful for two very awesome classes of students to teach (the second one especially). I kinda want to invite them all over for a party. And how awesome you got to go to your first acting class! I hope you find a job really soon; I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Talk soon, my dear -- and happy weekend!

  3. I am thankful for family helping me out, coffee and pizza, lol.

  4. I just got home from Taiwan, and every time I leave from there, it's so bittersweet, it hurts. But every time I feel that way, I remember to cultivate gratitude - that at least I'm fortunate enough to have the means to return whenever I wish, and that I have two homes instead of one. It's a great thing, really :)

    How cool that you've taken your first acting class!! Tell us more about it? :)

    Have a wonderful weekend, Kim!! :)

  11. I'm with you; I love having someone to keep me warm! Beyond that, Noah & I arrived back home at the apartment today from our hometown and I'm glad to be back! and.... I bought a Kindle with the last of my Christmas money (and I'll be a little light on groceries next week). I'm grateful for having a supportive guy, a roof over my head, and books that will take me away to amazing worlds.
