Because one day of Thanksgiving is not enough (2 of 7)  
Today, I give thanks for my new house and home!

After many months of searching -- some of them demoralizing -- the house-buying process turned from a slow slog to a whiplash fast conclusion. It's totally different from what we had envisioned when we first started looking, and it's really wonderful. I'm still moving in and settling in, and it's going to be such a pleasure once we finally have all the boxes cleared out, but even so, it's a really friggin' exciting and wonderful place to be.

I feel lucky to have moved from one great house and neighborhood to another great house and neighborhood nearby. I'm enjoying getting to know my new neighborhood as the place I live, rather than a place I travel through, and am slowly learning the rhythms of my new home and my roommates and myself in it.

A new home is, in many ways, a new life! It changes everything. I can hardly wait to look back a year from now and see what it looks like then.
I'm feeling: thankfulthankful

Oooh, I know this one! Pick meeee! :-)

Since I didn't participate in the other ones of these you did, I have been thinking about this since you posted Part 1. I also want to give thanks for my far-flung and eclectic gaggle of friends, who have in common an awesomeness that is humbling. I have been visiting with them all over the hemisphere, and it has been splendid.
