I am alive.
We are employed (as of today).
We have a roof over our heads.
We have food on the table.
We have wonderful friends and family.
We are enveloped and consumed by love.

Happy Halloween!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


  1. I am grateful to you for writing your blog and never being afraid to put it out there! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I am thankful for you, Erin. You’re my favorite haven’t-met-in-person-yet friend, you’re someone from whom I have learned so much, and your strength has been an inspiration to be since I was first introduced to you.

    I am thankful that you have a man who will go to any length to take care of you, and who now understands the importance of making sure the house never again runs out of bacon.

    I am thankful that you are raising two awesome kids to be good, caring, passionate, and intelligent people–something the world desperately needs more of.

    Finally, I am thankful that you share all of your thoughts, emotions, experiences, and wisdom online for all to see. By vicariously being a part of your life, mine has only been enriched.

    Happy thanksgiving, Erin, to you and the rest of the Vest Family Funhouse.

  6. Glad to hear someone snatched up @aaronvest so quickly. You two deserve to have all the wonders of the world to be laid at your feet!

  7. Continued blessings. The guardian angel you have on duty is working double time. At this point you must have a tag team duo angel combo or something.

    I think you should have an extra slice of pie on their behalf.
    I hear one of the angel’s is partial to cherry but would not turn down pumpkin or sweet potato.
