Today I am thankful to live in a place that can be 40 degrees in the morning when you wake up, but by lunch be 73, sunny, and perfect for a picnic in the park. It gets just cold enough to bundle up, to want to stay in your warm bed, have a mug of hot cocoa or even put on the fireplace if you have one…but warms up enough most days to remind me why I live in mostly sunny Southern California and not on the blizzard-prone East Coast .  And for this, I am grateful.
