We are so very thankful to have my parents in the same town. They are active and engaged grandparents. The relationship they have with the girls is something that we all treasure. It is such a gift to watch the girls enjoy their grandparents.
It is also a gift to occasionally get out of town with just my spouse.
We had a great time at the Governor's Arts Awards. Although they had no food for vegans (in spite of their advance planning) so we sat and watched others eat. Thankfully we were distracted with delightful and engaging people from all over our adopted state. Don't worry we ate later, back at the hotel.
The night was lovely. I am deeply thankful to live in a state that is so supportive of the arts. I am thankful for so much this morning: my spouse, family, friends, community!
