giving back

This is a great time of year for me. Beside the fact that I am so happy to be married, fall is my favorite season, and last night was the first of my three favorite holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas). Honestly, I can't remember the last time I have been this happy for this long. I got thinking about it when I was reading a bunch of posts by people that are suffering through some hard times right now, and realized that I can't even remember off the top of my head the last time I was feeling depressed. Definitely something to be happy about!

Last night was a lot of fun. Trav and I had tons of candy (and we still have WAY too much left), and all night long we were happily passing it out to the adorable kids that came to our door. My favorite coustume was probably the little girl dressed as Clifford... more because she was so damn adorable then because of the coustume itself. It was perfect with a cup of hot apple cider, and I'm so glad that Halloween came on a tuesday, so Travis could enjoy it too!!

On another note...

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This is a great time of year to realize how luck we are... count our blessing, be with those we love, and experience that general all-around happy feeling that the holidays (specifically Thanksgiving and Christmas in my opinion) give to people.

And it has to do with more then just turkeys!

It has to do with loved ones, and togetherness, and doing nice things for other people.
While I don't agree with the war, I do support our troops 100%. They are there fighting for people like me and you. They will be without all those great things that home brings during the holidays.

Do something special. Go to http://www.anysoldier.com and pick a name (read the instructions and it will all make sense). Send a care package, or even just a letter. Help a lonely soldier (or two) to feel a little better for the holidays. I already have my name, and two care packages on their way to soldiers in Iraq. It's such a little thing for me to do, and it will make a huge difference to someone who is missing those they love, and spending the holidays at war.

And I hope your holiday season gets off to a wonderful start!!
