Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving Day was an unusual 75 degrees and so perfect. Today it is a high of 40. Interesting, huh? The weather--that is one thing I was grateful for on Thanksgiving. Secondly, as I was getting back from my morning run, I was walking through our neighborhood when a huge gust of wind came through and for a moment everything was in slow motion. The leaves from the ground were being swept up and pummeled back into the air and the leaves falling from the trees seemed as though they were suspended in the air, twirling and dancing in the wind. It was amazing, and the lighting was so beautiful. I couldn't help but smile and remember how many beautiful things there are on this earth. There is much to be grateful for, and it makes me happy that we have an entire holiday to celebrate the giving of thanks. Even better that we celebrate with the best food.
So, this is my one creation, one of my contributions to the thanksgiving feast this year. Caramel Pecan Cheesecake. So delicious. Happy Thanksgiving everyone ... Christmas is just around the corner!
