Celebrating Thanksgiving this year will also be a mini-anniversary, marking two months of happy marriage to my wonderful husband Gerry. We are so thankful to have had an amazing wedding, and to have joined together our truly fantastic families. I am also so thankful that all of my friends and family on the East Coast made it through super storm Sandy healthy and safe.

This year at Thanksgiving I’m grateful to be more integrated into my new city of San Francisco and to finally be working on more projects I’m passionate about involving livable cities and public space. I’m also grateful to to know there are other people out there who travel and can’t help but notice the urban infrastructure and streetscape – case in point, the photo above is me excited to try out the Bangkok Sky Train (BTS) public transit system, while being amazed to find a Dunkin Donuts in the station. As a New Englander, nothing could have surprised me more! I look forward to eating a delicious Thanksgiving meal with friends, to which I’ll be contributing cranberry sauce and at least two pies, the best part!

It is so difficult to stop and think about what we are thankful for. Most of the times, we just take the good things for granted, as if they are supposed to happen anyways. This year, I am most thankful about all the travelling I did, the lovely countries I saw and all the wonderful people that I met. I am grateful to have had an opportunity to travel to countries like Italy and Sweden this year and experience the culture, and not to mention the food, which is so different from mine here in India.

This year I am thankful for close friends and family, particularly my unwavering husband who has supported me through what sometimes feels like a never-ending process of education and certification. I’m also thankful for the first year-round Farmer’s Market here in Salt Lake, so that I can finally make a Thanksgiving feast using the best local ingredients around. And finally, I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the amazing Inhabitat team and able to help spread the word of the green revolution.
