Lucky Me

I woke up this morning feeling compelled to count my many blessings. It's really something I should do more often - I have it pretty darn good, afterall! So, in honour of the fact that Canadian Thanksgiving is only 138 days away, here are some of the countless ways in which my life totally rocks:

  • I have an amazing Hubs, who loves me treats me with respect, picks up my slack, puts up with my nagging and mood swings, and is a wonderful and involved father.
  • I'm Canadian, so I get to brag about a year maternity leave, free(ish) healthcare, and Justin Bieber. (Hah! I managed to work him into yet another blog post!)
  • I have this week's episode of Glee on PVR. Gaga!!!
  • I have a sound roof over my head and plenty of food on my table and have never had to spend much time worrying about money.
  • I live in Vancouver. We have ocean, we have mountain, we have ridiculously overpriced real estate. What's not to love?
  • I have a great job waiting for me, and I can afford to go back to work only four days a week and spend the extra day with Lilah.
  • I actually like my in-laws. All of them.
  • I have fantastic friends and family, who would drop everything to be by my side if I really needed them, even if I'm not always the best at returning phone calls and touching base.
  • Though you wouldn't know it to look out my window at the moment, summer is just around the corner!
  • I get to be mommy to the cutest, sweetest, loveliest little girl on the planet.

Really, how did I get so lucky?
