Thanksgiving 2012

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we’re planning on driving up to Pennsylvania in the morning to enjoy the holiday with both sets of our parents.   We are lucky that both families can get together at once and enjoy each other’s company, which also means Adam and I don’t have to go running back and forth between two houses.   I’m looking forward to relaxing, catching up with everyone and enjoying the beginning of the holiday season!
It’s hard to believe that another Thanksgiving is here...last year on the day before Thanksgiving I was rushing around like a chicken…errr Turkey….with my head cut off trying to get everything ready to host the first big holiday at our house.  Now, another year has come and gone in the blink of an eye.  I try not to get all mushy, but here are just some of the things I’m thankful for this year:

-          An amazing family that is supportive of our endeavors.  This year, both my Grammie and Adam’s Grandma passed away, but we were so lucky to have grandmothers like that in our lives.  We both truly come from incredible families.
-          A wonderful husband who is there to listen, give me advice, fix things, cheer me up, make me laugh and give me a hug when it’s needed
-          Although I might not enjoy it all the time, I’m thankful for a dependable job
-          Great friends
-          A beautiful house that has provided us with lots of projects over the past 18 months
-          One little dog that always manages to make me laugh (even when he’s pooping on the basement floor or barking incessantly)
I hope everyone who reads the blog has a great Thanksgiving.
