I have so many things to be thankful for. Last week was Thanksgiving, and I felt a bit bummed that I was so far away from family and friends and unable to celebrate with others. I was feeling sorry for myself and complaining a bit to my lovely husband. He was so understanding, and just plain awesome. We decided to spend the long weekend in Sicily, as a little treat, and to do something fun since we couldn't be with family and friends this year. I am soooo glad we went! (Pics will be coming soon.) It made me realize that I really do have SO much to be thankful for. The picture above is just a little pretty with many things I love and am so thankful for, beautiful flowers, stunning colors, great cook books, my super awesome cozy red and white stripey scarf from H&M in the background.... I could go on and on.
What are you thankful for?

|I was trying to get the baby goat to come a bit closer so I could pet it, I used a bit of bribery in the form of cactus leaves.|
That is one thing I have really been enjoying since living in Malta all of the incredible fresh produce. I've been cooking a lot of Mediterranean inspired dishes, last night I made a tasty Sicilian fish stew. I can't get enough of the tomatoes and olive oil, it's been such a treat. I do have to be careful not to go crazy with the pasta, because everyone knows what happens when you eat too much pasta!!! Not a pretty sight. I have found a tasty gluten free alternative which is pretty similar to the original thing.
