BLOGFEST: Class of 2k14 is Thankful For...

This week, the Class of 2k14 is sharing what we're thankful for. Click the logo above to see links to posts from the other members!

I'm not going to lie, this has been a difficult year. I'm anxious for 2014 to start, hopeful the new year won't be quite so heart smashing. But despite the trials, there's still plenty to be thankful for.

  • My husband. The best man in the world. 
  • My parents. Supportive. Loving. Funny. 
  • My husband's family. I couldn't have asked for better in-laws and nephews.
  • My friends. A wide variety of personalities and interests. I love them all.
  • My book deal with Bloomsbury. If it weren't for this amazing dream come true, I feel it's likely I'd be wallowing around in a black hole of sadness. This has been a bright spot that brings a smile to my face every day. And I'm so thankful for that. 
  • My agent, Marietta Zacker. She's so great, y'all. I can't even believe I get to work with such a talented and kind person who also gets my stories.
  • My editor, Caroline Abbey. Smart, sweet, similar interests. Couldn't have hand picked a better editor for my debut experience. 
  • The Class of 2k14. I'm learning so much, and it's brought me a new close friend. 
  • My boxers, Duke and Mylie. The personalities on these two! We're laughing every day. 
  • My tastebuds. I'll be especially thankful these work on Thursday when I'm eating pumpkin crunch cake. 
  • Books, and that people are still buying/reading them.  
  • Television shows.
  • Movies.
  • Music. 
  • Hair dye. 
  • Tap shoes.
  • Scarves.
  • Airplanes that allow me to visit far away lands.
  • Digital cameras, Photoshop, and that I sort of know how to use both of them.  
  • Running water.
  • Corrective eyewear.
There's plenty more, but I won't bore you. What are you thankful for this year?

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. A lot of your stuff is the same on my list. Family. Friends. Pets. Actually having a job that i don't hate. I was hoping 2013 might go a different way for me (and hell, there's still time) but there you go

  2. Is it bad that I'd put bundt cakes near the top of my list?

  3. Fantastic list! OMG....congratulations on all of your success! I really need to get caught up with all my favorite blogs. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year! Just added your book to my Goodreads. Yay! :)
