Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year! Here in our family we celebrate them all. I just wanted to write up a brief post recognizing what I am thankful for as I reflect on 2013 and look forward to 2014….

This year I really started getting into blogging and created Real Food RN. I have had so many wonderful comments and readers and writing my recipes and posts has really helped me to balance out my life at the hospital. I am thankful for my loyal readers! Thank YOU!

Every day I am thankful for my children, but especially around this time of year. I grew up with Christmas as my favorite time of year and now watching my children enjoy the magic of the season is even more enjoyable than I ever imagined. Teaching them all of the traditions I grew up enjoying and starting our own traditions brings me so much joy that I am just bursting at the seams with excitement. Being a Mom is the most important job that I do and having such wonderful, curious, energetic children makes being Mom the best part of my life.

I am thankful for a healthy family and our access to local and organic food so I can create real food meals….and then write about them here!

I am thankful for my family and friends and all of those in my life that support and love me. I love you guys! Merry Christmas!

I am thankful for early mornings on the couch with my computer, a warm blanket and our kitty.

I am thankful for a roof over our heads, food in the fridge, and presents under our tree.

Lastly, I am thankful that Santa brought me exactly what I asked for this year….Beyond Bacon!!! Thanks Santa!
