Tonight I’m thankful for the silly little moments I share with my husband. On our way home from the grocery store, we had a hilarious conversation about flatulence. I’m so lucky that Nick has a great sense of humor and that we can laugh over such plain and mundane things.
Some things that we laugh about together:
I’ve already mentioned that I’m thankful for laughter. But laughing with someone over special, inside jokes is even better. The cherry on top.
As I was making breakfast one morning, this is what I saw out of my kitchen window. It’s Nick and Mia, playing around outside. And it’s one of my favorite things about my life 🙂
SUSHI! Tonight I had dinner with another one of my very dearest friends and we ate what we almost always eat: Sushi. It’s definitely one of my favorite meals ever so tonight I’m definitely thankful for sushi :-)\
I learned most of what I know about Sushi from jut eating it and paying attention to menus and poking around online but I also learned some interesting facts from Alton Brown, who I greatly admire and respect when it comes to food. From him I learned that it is thought that sushi was created about a thousand years go by a little old woman who lived in the woods of Japan. She was sitting down to eat a big pot of rice for dinner when she heard some bandits coming. She climbed into a tree and hid her rice in the nest of a large sea bird so the bandits wouldn’t steal it. When she finally went to retrieve her rice, it had partially fermented and had little bits of fish left by the sea bird. She tasted it, decided it was delicious, and that’s how Sushi was came to be! Cute little story, huh?
I’m thankful for laughter. It’s just so much fun to do and you know when you’re doing it you’re having fun. What’s not to love about that? It’s also a pretty powerful medicine; even on my crappiest days I’ll start to feel better if I can laugh. Of course that means I have to actually find something funny, but when I do, it makes me feel better.
I happen to have a huge smile and boisterous laugh. Don’t believe me? Just look at this photo (or almost any of my wedding photos):
Yup. This is just the way it is and I wouldn’t change it for anything. So, have you laughed today?
…wait, isn’t that from a cheese commercial? Oops. Oh, well. GET TO LAUGHING! 🙂
