give thanks

Happy belated Thanksgiving, friends! I hope everyone had a great time and wore their stretchy pants like me ;)

I’m so thankful for all of you – thank you for reading, commenting, emailing, encouraging…this is such a special little place for me and it wouldn’t be that way without each of you. (raising my virtual glass) – Cheers… this one’s for you!

Our Thanksgiving was so fun… we gathered around a folding table and devoured our meal by candlelight. I think the best part was that most of the group was celebrating Thanksgiving for the first time (babies + Brits). It was fun to watch them daintly put together their plates (the Brits, not the babies. Obviously) and then stare with wide eyes at the mounds all the rest of us Americans assembled. We made our country proud :)
