    My Ode to Things I'm Grateful For

    Starting off with...

    steve-urkel-224x324-2.jpg

    • My First Crush...the one and only Steve Urkel
      (You exemplified everything that a man should be. Smart. Compassionate. Honorable. Loyal. Intelligent. Inventive. Humorous. Positive. Strong. Determined. Stylish. Sexy...in a very geeky kind of way.)

    • DH's cooking skills and initiative to step up in the kitchen when I can't/don't want to (amongst other things)
      (You tried to hide it from me before marriage, but when I found out how well you can cook...OH BOY! Can I say "BONUS!" Chai. Chowmein. Cupcakes . Pav Bhaji. Khichada. Batura. Maggi. Etc. You know how to make a girl swoon.)

    • Parents perpetual concern and last minute help.
      (Mom. Dad. Always watching out for me and willing to step up anytime, anywhere, anyway possible.)

    • Extra Hot Peppermint Mochas with Whip and Chocolate Drizzle...
      (However would I start my mornings without you?)

    • UBER
      (How many times have you reliably saved my ass when i've been pressed on time to get somewhere! How did I live without you?)

    • Apple & Google
      (I can't even express how much you mean to me.)

    • Pinterest & Online Shopping
      (The hours you've saved me. You don't know.)

    • Bay Area
      (Intelligent/humble/friendly folks...Diverse ethnicities, languages, food, cultures, activities, industries, micro-climates, geography...SO MUCH INNOVATION...you got it all! Everytime I fly back and we start to fly over your beautiful coastlines, I sigh in relief. No place like home.)

    • My Kitchen
      (From cupboards to containers, and all the ways I try to organize you...you are my sanctuary. ILY.)

    • My Gadgets
      (I could not accomplish anything without reliable gadgets. iPad, mobile phone, computer. TY for putting up with me day in and day out. You follow me everywhere and find a way to keep me company. Your pulsing glow at night comforts me)

    • Sephora
      (From BB/CC SPF moisturizers to make up, from cleansers to tools...You, quite literally, complete me.)

    • My Job
      (Never did I think I'd get to do what I love and love what I do, who I work with, the impact it has not just on clients and the world...but on me, too. I never dreamt this was possible. Thank you, Universe! AND TAKE THAT BITTER, BITTER PEOPLE WHO TRIED TO DISCOURAGE ME!)
