Hey, friends!

Today is Thanksgiving.  I hope we will all set down our phones, our distractions, and our to-do's for the day and enjoy the loved ones around us, the time of reflection, and the good food.  Instead of a long post this week, here are three things I'm thankful for:

The amazing people closest to me who make good things sweeter and hard things more bearable; this life is infinitely more worthwhile with them in it.
The wonderful, fun community of students I am so lucky to teach and play music with!  I love my job.
Moments/days/weeks/seasons of rest.  That's a hard one for me because I always want to be go-go-go.  Rest is beautiful and needed; I'm trying to get some, and I wish the same for all of you lovely people this holiday weekend!


And also a big THANK YOU to all of you for reading my words and interacting with me in this space.  I really, really appreciate it and am happy to have you!

What are some of your thankfuls?

May you have a joyful, love-stuffed Thanksgiving!

Happy playing!
