Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite holidays of the year! Besides the over consumption of deliciously fattening foods, Thanksgiving has remained a relatively simple holiday, free from many of the materialistic/consumer driven distractions surrounding Christmas (no offense Christmas). For the most part, Thanksgiving is a day to pause our busy lives and embrace the presence of family and loved ones over a carefully prepared meal well worth giving thanks for. Work is put aside, troubles are temporarily forgotten, and life’s blessings are recognized and appreciated…come to think of it, shouldn’t this be something we take a moment out of every day to do?
Here is a snippet of my Thanksgiving with David and his parents, Tom and Kibble. It was beautiful day, a scrumptious meal, and much needed time of rest and fellowship. Thank you both for making the trip West to join us!
So, in the spirit of gratefulness, I want to tell you all how much I appreciate your support and encouragement of this blog and my work. I wouldn’t be doing this without you….many thanks!
* I used my fine china from our wedding for the very first time this Thanksgiving (yeah, I know…its been 4 years! Better late than never, though.)…that was so special and a luxury I feel incredibly blessed to have.
**Also, I will be posting extra photos of our Thanksgiving on Hilary Inspired’s Facebook page… “like” the page to check out the album.
