Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Here is a very short list of stuff I'm extremely thankful for...

  • A job that lets me exercise my basic belief that girls matter. 
  • An online community of supportive feminists who educate me daily.
  • Hilarious, compassionate friends.
  • A city full of fun, vibrant activities.
  • Family--that's a complicated one for me, but I am thankful for them. Especially my in-laws, who have embraced me as their own.
  • The ability and means to express myself through writing.
  • My kitten babies. 
  • The ability to exercise my right to vote (something my great grandmother couldn't do!)
  • Excellent feminist books this year from writers like Jessica Valenti and Lesley Kinzel.
  • Gabby Douglas' smile and her talent reigniting my excitement for Olympic gymnastics.
  • A second Obama term.
  • OPI nail polish bringing color into my life daily.
  • And most of all, a supportive, loving partner who brings so much creativity and laughter into my life. 
I hope you all have a lovely holiday!
