While the turkeys are cooking and the families are gathering, a few of the TUBE.rs thought we would take a minute to tap into our mushy side and share with you what we are oh so thankful for.  Here is an inside view to who we love, what we love and what gives us a smile.

Melissa Uroff: Art.  Avocados.  Laughter.  Music.  Matt.  Roller skates, sand in my toes, and scary movies.  My two smelly dogs, having great friends, my crazy family and fireworks.  I am thankful for all the people who have given me a chance to try something new, who helped me try something great, who make me laugh when I’ve given up, who challenge me, inspire me, make art with me, dance with me, play music with me.  I am thankful for all the people around me that make my heart explode on a regular basis.

Naomi Lucchesi: Grateful for amazing life long friends, for my crazy family, for the dogs and cat that give me grey hair, but most of all for the rollercoaster ride that I call life.

Sarah Elliott: Bees, beer and babes.

K. Hules: I’m thankful for Ryan (Stewart), my family, National Novel Month, TUBE., that I am graduating soon, and that neither my big brother nor I died in our motorcycle accident in June.  I am thankful for my awesome roommates and that Ryan didn’t wake up when I just smashed a spider in our bed.  And I will be even more thankful when I find the damn thing.

Lea Bradley: I usually hate everything about my body, but I am incredibly thankful for its amazing ability to grow a perfect little person in just nine months.
