Happy Thanksgiving!!

For me, it has always been a little tougher to blog during the holiday season. Maybe I need to slow down some....and relax and bask in all the hidden beauty around me. Hot Chocolate, fresh flowers in the season's most richest of Autumn hues, nature walks, the smell of freshly baked pumpkin cookies as you enter into the room....all of these "Diamond in the roughs." During the holiday season we tend worry about everything getting finished on time, or things looking perfect. Then we miss out on the simple blessings. I am not one to open up personally on a blog, I never have been. Maybe it's because people will start to notice my feelings. Not sure if I'd like this. I have much to be thankful for this holiday season my friends. We will be holding Thanksgiving at our place for the first time ever!! I am sooooooo excited, and yes I want everything to look perfect. But if it doesn't, I suppose it's okay ~;o) Where are you having Thanksgiving at this year? Will you be making something special? Will you be cooking a huge feast, or ordering your meal? Maybe you'll make a non-tradional meal? Whatever it is, save me a piece, kidding ~;o) So yes, tell me all about it! I'd love to hear ~:o) I would like to wish all my family and friends a very safe and blessed Thanksgiving Day! I am sending these wishes to you a little bit early....as I and you both know tomorrow will be a busy day for all of us. May you savor every beautiful moment of it, and let us not forget to thank the Lord our God for the many blessings he has provided each and everyone of us with this year!

Thanks for sharing Rebecca! I'm celebrating with my family and Kristina Meleshko's family. We decided to have a joint Thanksgiving this year since we've lost so many loved ones and our celebrations seem to be shrinking each year. My mom and I are cooking at my house: 2 turkeys, my grandmother's stuffing, my other grandmother's sweet yams, mashed potatoes, and caramel pecan pumpkin pie. My aunt Bernadine is bringing a broccoli corn casserole and an old family recipe for sweet potato pudding. Not sure what other sides will make an appearance, but it should be a yummy time for all. We definitely have a lot to be thankful for this year, but we'll also miss our loved ones who won't be with us for the first time. Hopefully their recipes will keep their memory alive for years to come. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Enjoy your celebration at your house! :)

That's quite the table their Stephanie!! And that is just wonderful that you and Kristina's family could get together for Thanksgiving!! My husband, Bella, and I were all sick for Thanksgiving but we still managed to make the most and best of it!! I'll bet it is hard to do a turkey? I never have tried to do one before, too intimidated I guess, I did make a fruit tart and homemade mashed potatos! Sides are always a little easier for me to do ~;o) Thank you for sharing with me and I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!
