Gobble. Gobble. Turkey day is here tomorrow and while I’m not against eating turkey, it isn’t my favorite part of the day. I like the sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. Yum. They match my hair right now…seriously. I won’t go into any details other than, I made a hair mistake and now I am paying for it (if you follow me on twitter you understand). The last few weeks have been interesting and a little emotional on the family side of things; one would think I would write about all the things I am thankful for this holiday season. Most people would write about being thankful for their family, children or their job. Oh, I’m thankful for all of the above and a lot more but over the course of the last year Green and Clean Mom has taught me a lot about myself, technology, business, networking and writing. That is what I am thankful for and if a turkey could blog I think it would agree with me.

I am thankful that…

I got the mention in the NY Times last October that mention was my tipping point and led me to turn G&CM into a LLC and move from blogger to WordPress.

I decided to go with Claire at Sharpwit Designs because she created a beautiful WordPress theme that really branded Green and Clean Mom.

I have met great moms and bloggers like myself that are either blogging for business or for fun. The list is rather large but some of them included: Monica from Healthy Green Moms, Lori from A Cowboys Wife, Jennifer from The Smart Mama, Lynn from Organic Mania, Kim from Anti Social Development, Sean from Green Living Ideas, Bridgitte from Natural Pod, Kathy from the Safe Mama, Anna from Green Talk, Jennifer from Eco Office Gals, Rachel from Busy Mommy, Candace from Mamanista, Alicia from The Soft Landing, Kirsten from Trying to be Greener, Jennifer from Eco Child’s Play, Derek from Eco Child’s Play , Amy from Crunchy Domestic Goddess, Janelle and everyone from Healthy Child and Lisa from EWG and all of the great people that work to research and advocate for our environment and health.

I could fill this page with names and links but really, these bloggers have helped me tremendously and being connected to them and their causes, missions, experiences and good will, it has made me a better person. Just reading and watching what they do, how the interact, what inspires them and works for them…it has helped me and for that I am thankful.

I am thankful for going back to work and investing in myself, my talents and my skills so that I could be a happier mommy and a better person for my children. This decision has created more opportunities, personal and professional growth, the reason for my updated services page and more smiles. I just happen to have a dirtier house!

Have a wonderful thanksgiving and while everyone eats turkey or tofu turkey I will be sledding, setting up our Christmas tree and spending a blessed day with my family.
