This week I’m thankful for…
…a FABULOUS 4th of July party/birthday bash yesterday. Grilled steaks and BBQ chicken combined with loads of vino and cold beer made the perfect party mix. We had so much fun meeting and getting to know our fabulous neighbors and new friends and finished with a exciting and slightly frightening firework display. The hubby bought a giant box of fun and really lit up the sky!
...arriving home safely on Thursday morning and getting greeted by Mr. Ripley devouring me with kisses for over an hour.
…deciding to change my 5.5 hour layover in Chicago from a lazy day into a 7 mi run at an airport hotel.
…this AMAZING BBQ shrimp Po Boy from Holley’s – it was so freaking delicious, I could have easily eaten 2 of them!
…getting to witness this pretty in pink sunrise as I landed in London on Thursday morning.
…finding my”perfect” new training trail shoe for my next BIG adventure. (promise to explain it all on Tuesday)
…not getting the sparklers I smuggled into the UK in my checked baggage discovered. They were the perfect ending to an awesome party and created some fun photos.
…all the AMAZING flowers I received yesterday and a package from my long time friend that was filled with cards she bought, addressed and never mailed from the last 5 years. It was quite awesome….
…and finally, saving the BEST for LAST…as we said goodbye to all our friends, cleaned up and finally were heading to bed – WE CAUGHT A STREET FOX eating our recyclables at 2am. We have never been able to photograph one before it jets off but luckily, I had my NEW iPhone 6 at the ready and was able to prove street foxes exist to all my American friends!
