I'm thankful to have found a new activity to do close to home.
Living in the suburbs of a large metropolitan area, it always seems as if the good stuff takes place downtown. However, I recently found salsa classes being taught at a studio on my side of town. Those in the area who know what it can be like trying to cross town for anything in the evenings can appreciate how big this is. I would not have been at all likely to sign up for classes were they taking place somewhere else. Now, I have a fun opportunity to get out and meet people while learning a new activity, without using all of my gas to do it. And for that I am thankful.
