Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving...what a special day to spend with family & friends gathered around bountiful tables of food!  I personally think we should have Thanksgiving every month, once a year is just not enough....
(a beautifully decorated townhouse I passed on the Upper East Side)
It hasn't been an easy year, a lot of heartache, both human & animal.  Very sadly we had to say goodbye to my mom's beautiful cat Pooka last week.  She died on my Gram's birthday & we said Gram wanted a birthday present in heaven.  She was a stunning & special cat & mom to my 13 year old George.  I'm comforted to know she's playing in heaven with my Gram & Popper & Popeye... 
(Pooka was an angel & looks like one in this picture :)
Whenever you open your heart there's a chance it will be broken but no matter how long or short these special people & animals were in my life I am grateful for every second we got to spend together. 
What are you grateful for today?  Today I'm grateful for my family, friends & pets (of course), heat & hot water, the sound of birds singing on a cold November day & watching my new kitten Frankie see his first snowfall this week (he ran up to the windows like, What the hell is going on?!)  Do you know that gratitude is the key to attracting everything you dream of in life?  You can read more about the power of gratitude here.  It really is about a change in perspective that will change your life.
Happy Thanksgiving & I am grateful for each & every one of you!

    1. I am so sorry about Columbo, I truly know how it feels :( But I know he would want you to open your heart & home to another bundle of love just like you did for him...when the time is right you & that new little loveball will find each other :)
