I always thought Thanksgiving was perfectly timed. Like, whoever decided the holiday would fall on the last Thursday of November knew we would all need a little break. And if you’re like me, breaks are a rare and beautiful thing, so much so, I tend to lose sight of the little things. So, last night I sat down with pen and paper and decided to kick it old school and make a list of what I’m thankful for this year…with a little Asheville twist, of course.
Fiddlesticks with extra blue cheese
Sunday afternoons spent baking
4.) Malaprop’s Bookstore’s
My brother’s sense of humor
6.) That Chipotle coming to town is no longer a rumor
8.) Izzy’s Coffee Den’s
Leftover Halloween candy
meat counter. Best bacon in town.
Getting lost on hikes and discovering new views
My father’s example of living life fearlessly
Red gummy bears
H&M taking the hint and opening shop in the Asheville mall
The new outlet mall opening in 2015
The craft brew scene
Pink nail polish
My reading glasses
Hallmark Channel movie marathons with my roommate
21.) The New Yorker
Worn in running shoes
A great cup of coffee
24.) French Broad Chocolate Lounge’s
expansion. ‘bout time.
Laughing with friends until my stomach hurts.
26.) Highland Brewing Company’s
free brewery tours. And the free samples are always nice.
The camaraderie between the young people in this city. We all have each other’s back.
