I am thankful. I am thankful for a safe community, a warm house and dinner on the table nightly.

I am thankful for my loving family and the best friends on the planet.

I am thankful for all the opportunities I have been given and all the doors that have been opened.

I am thankful to tell stories through pictures and I'm so, so thankful that I'm able to enter the lives of so many fabulous human beings.

I am thankful for coffee, and chocolate, and Boursin. I am really, really thankful for coffee.

But, most of all, I am thankful for these two beautiful people.

I am also thankful for you, my friends, you faithful readers who so graciously visit this humble little blogsite. There are some big, big things happening here in Britta-Land, some, big, big things I can't wait to share with you - and it's because of you its happening.

So, stay tuned - 17 days.
