The face of a winner!

My Grover, my best friend. I'm thankful for such a loving, goofy presence in my life. And because I chose to share with the world how truly thankful I am for him, he and I won a photo contest!

Jessica Claire (an amazing photographer) asked for submissions of a photo that sums up what you are thankful for this year. With a few hiccups in my life recently, I've treasured Grover's companionship above all (much to the chagrin of my husband who said "Hmpf!" in a register vaguely reminiscent of Miss Piggy.) It seemed only right to submit him. With some well timed prodding from my dear friend Kate, lo and behold, we were chosen! I'm still a bit gobsmacked as the other submissions are nothing short of amazing. Touching, beautiful, just downright spectacular... I feel like an imposter.

Thanks to Jessica for loving his ugly mug, and to Kate for mentioning it in the first place. I can now stop lusting after her awesome Jessica Claire Shootsac, as one is on its way to me. Heeeee...

New England Fall Foliage

One of the reasons I will forever live in New England is for the foliage. There's nothing like it. It would have been nice had the weather been a bit more autumnal, instead of going from frigid to sweltering to sopping wet to frigid, but I'll take what I can get. It finally has that crispy fall smell outside...
