Better late than never – The 10 Things I am thankful for in November

Thankful November - The Perfect Fit Project

Time escape me and I didn’t get to publish this at the end of November as I wanted to. I actually wrote it and had it in my mind pretty much ALL-THE-TIME, but anyway, I guess better late than never, here is my list for November.

1. Jason and I finally bought the tickets to go on our honeymoon / one-year anniversary! We will be visiting Brazil and Argentina for two amazing weeks next year.

2. I went to a symphonic concert at the National Theater. It was so beautiful because the National Choir was also celebrating their 50 year anniversary and they sung a couple of songs with the orchestra. I can make another check on my 30 before 30 list!

3. I participated on Snail Mail My Email.

4. Jason finished another paper for the programmes he’s studying and now he will finally get some time off to rest and recharge.

5. We celebrated Friendsgiving again this year. We didn’t get to do it last year because we had a lot going on and honestly, we were kind of tired. But had people over this year again and it was really nice to share with them.

6. I finally got the chance to design some original pieces for the winery company I’ve been designing for. I think they have become a regular client now, and I couldn’t be happier about it!

7. Thanks to the Black Friday online deals I bought a new laptop!

8. Jason and I moved some stuff around the house and decided to make a “garden room” where we will actually try to grow stuff (it used to be my old sewing room – too small to actually be comfortable – ) and a studio/new sewing and design room.

9. This is a really random one, but some time ago I participated in sort of an online contest where one had to answer questions about food and cooking. The prize was a very nice gourmet cuisine cookbook. I completely forgot about it, but a few days ago I found out that I had won one.

10. I started learning a little bit of Portuguese online for free, and I’m really loving it. It is very basic level, but still it is a lot of fun. I will definitely try to use it during the trip. If you are interested in picking up some basics of different languages try Duolingo, it is a really good starting point.

This month I will try to be on time with my list, and just more present in general.
