I love when my husband does this Russian accent, we call him Boris. I had no idea I was attracted to Russian accents until my husband. Men are so charming sometimes. 😉

I am thankful for DH, period. Even for the annoyances, but especially for the friendship. 🙂

I am thankful that my FI is such a loving, sweet, loyal, caring person who would do anything to brighten my day.  He is so supportive of everything I do and I feel incredibly lucky to have the most amazing man.

I am thankful for my SO for loving me for everything I am, for being everything he is and for being in my life as both a lover and my best friend.

I am thankful for my partner and how much on the same page we are.  We’ve had problems with communication in the past, but got over it.  But something we have never had a problem with is fidelity and loyalty and trust.  I see other couples who are torn apart because of these things and feel so grateful that my partner and I don’t have that in our relationship.  Ironically, the first time my partner and I said we really liked it eachother, we made it clear that if we were going to be together there had to be no game playing as we had both played the field a fair bit before eachother and that this had to be different for both of us.  We said it and meant it and there has never been any game playing on eithers part – just 100% committed to eachother through thick and thin. I am so thankful my partner is on the same page as me.

We live abroad and didn’t get to see family or friends for thanksgiving. Large ovens are not common in this country and I have never seen a turkey here… long story short I didn’t have a day off work, let alone black friday, ate curry for thanksgiving dinner, and played video games.

As a result of the holiday season starting this way, I’ve been feeling really homesick and depressed. To make matters worse, FI had to do overtime yesterday, he teaches after school classes sometimes at the local library (we’re English teachers in Korea.)

So he comes home late at 7 PM and I’m on the couch in my little ball of self-pity, and he says “I made something for you.”

Turns out he did a thanksgiving class at his after school… and taught them how to make hand turkeys.

He made me one — colored it in and everything, it’s adorable and hilarious — with sunglasses and a gold chain, and wrote “Thank You [nickname for me]” on it.

I’m tearing up writing this, it was exactly what I needed to remind me that he’s my family now and even when there’s nobody else, and we’re just eating curry and coke zero for thanksgiving dinner, we’ve still got each other.

thanks for making this post!!!

I am thankful for SO because he is truly one of the best friends I’ve had. He is incredibly supportive, encouraging, fun, and loving. He looks for ways to demonstrate that he loves me.He’s my nerd and my family man. I love the times we share and our relatinship. I’m so happy I have him in my life.

My SO in truly a genuinely kind, caring, giving, nurturing person.

He doesn’t blow his money on ridiculous things because he wants to take care of us and our “babies” (a guinea pig and a cat). 

That’s another one:  he truly loves my/our pets and calls us “his girls”.  I mean really, who buys organic lettuce for a guinea pig??

He really just wants to make me happy.  If it means watching the Bachelor(ette), driving across town to the coffee shop I like, or letting me move away for a couple of years to do the job I love, my SO will do any of it if he knows I’ll be happy.

Maybe it sounds like I’m taking advantage, but I know he’s getting the short end of the stick.

Some girls have all the luck.

Love this post! I am so thankful that my SO is supportive of my second round of post-secondary education, and encourages me through it… I’m a big ball of stress a lot of the time, and he knows exactly how to bring me back down to earth. He makes me laugh, keeps me company, puts up with my temper and gives me my space when I need it. After 7 years, this guy knows me better than anyone, and he is without a doubt my best friend in the whole world. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!

@roguefishfood  I’m in Korea and did Thanksgiving alone, too.  Working on a holiday at home that everyone knows about is way different than working on one and trying to remain spirited when no one around you observes the holiday!

I make pumpkin pie and some stuffing.  And mashed potatoes.  Sending pie-infused vibes your way ^^

I’m thankful for DH because he’s very patient with me. We are opposites like that – I will freak out about something, and he’ll calm me down.

I’m thankful for my SO because he keeps me in line. I’m an emotional, impulsive person, and he lets me know when I’m getting to be too childish or b*tchy. I feel like he’s trained me over the years to be more mature by doing the above and by being so wonderful it inspires me to be worthy of his love.

Edit: wow, that kinda makes it sound like he’s controlling or psychologically abusive, but I assure you he’s not lol
