raising a healthy family in a toxic world

day 18: 30 days of thanks

on November 18, 2012

Sooooo, yeah, today I’m choosing to be thankful for alcohol. Not the rubbing kind. The drinking kind. Sometimes there is just nothing like a cold beer or a glass of wine at the end of a long day (or in the middle. I’m not here to judge.). Just when you think you may be on the brink of insanity, your buddy Sam Adams is there to calm your nerves and lift your spirits! My days of college style drinking and partying are long over, but I still enjoy a cocktail, whether out with friends or sipping scotch with the husband on a cold, snowy night.
Being a mom makes that drink even more rewarding. It’s one thing that makes me feel like an adult, like my own person, if only for a few minutes. Enjoying a glass of wine after the little one’s bedtime is so relaxing, especially after those tough tantrum-y teething days. Today just happened to be one of those.
Tonight I raise my glass and give thanks to the cocktail for keeping us all a little more sane. Cheers!

  1. I love it! I made an amazing pumpkin smoothie at lunch and thought, this would be great with alcohol!
