Next Friday will mark three years since Dann asked me to marry him, which means it's been nearly three years since my mom, my two sisters, and my sis-in-law gave me my first KitchenAid stand mixer.
Ever since I was a teenager, I wanted a bright red KitchenAid. I wasn't a baker then, but I'm sure I saw one in a magazine and dreamt up a scenario in which I had time to learn how to bake all kinds of delicious treats and share them with my family and friends.
After we got married, I put that bad boy to use and baked hundreds and hundreds of cupcakes. I've been using it this week to bake all different kinds of Christmas cookies. At this point, I might even call myself a baker.
So this is what I'm thankful for today. A gift that I wanted for a long long time, family who knows me well enough to give such a gift, and time to spend learning how to make delicious treats to share with my loved ones!
What are you thankful for today?
