Grateful for all of you who bring so much love into my life. Grateful for the lessons learned this year, for my two loving, artistic, sweet, and chaotic kids without whom life just wouldn’t be the same. Grateful for my partner who allows me to be who I am, and who supports my choices. Grateful to my bad-ass friends who offer endless banter, laughter, love, a few cries, and alcohol as required. Grateful for a career that inspires me daily to keep growing and learning. Life is good #fullheart 🧡 Happy Thanksgiving!!!! #deepgratitude #nowbacktocooking #family #friends
