Happy Thanksgiving!!

by Jenn (eating bender) on November 26, 2009

I’m thankful for…

A beautiful family.

A kind, intelligent and handsome fiance.

The ability to enjoy Thanksgiving from the most beautiful place on Earth (photo found here).

Good food, good recipes and good moods.

See my recent guest post on Mara’s blog for last year’s deliciousness.

And last, but certainly not least.

I know it’s been a busy year for all of us, but the fact that you are reading this post right now means more to me than you’ll ever know (other than the fact that I will try to remind you as often as possible!) :) I would not be where I am today without you — trust me, I say that with complete confidence. I am thankful for all of the bloggers I’ve had the pleasure to meet in real life and hope that that will only continue in the years to come. This community has made me a better writer, a better friend and a better person, and I am SO. THANKFUL.

I will be back soon with a Thanksgiving recap, but before I go, I would like to again bring up a cause that is very special to me. One of the campaigns I am most proud of this year in my job as a public relations professional is the work my company is doing on a program called Tweetsgiving. You may have read about it by clicking here or here on MizFit’s blog and several others who have shown support.

Last year, the non-profit group Epic Change launched a program called Tweetsgiving that aimed to raise $10,000 in 48 hours and ultimately raised $11,000 through hundreds of small, first-time donations, thousands of tweets, hundreds of blog posts and more.

This year, Tweetsgiving, the first successful Twitter fundraiser of its kind, is back again, proving the power of social media and Twitter in harnessing thousands of small dollar donations to support a cause. You can read more about the story by clicking here . If you are interested, consider supporting the cause and share what you’re thankful for during this special holiday!


Remember this guy from last year? Amazing how time flies…and a bit scary!

Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving with your family. I don’t know about the Costco potatoes though, and the corn bread mix – in my family, it’s just against the rules to not make everything from scratch! LOL.
