Thanksgiving dinner and more...

There's so much I want to say...where to begin. I've been thinking a lot about how blessed I am to have the family and friends I do. I think about people don't have what I have and it makes me want to share it somehow. The amazing thing is it can't be captured...well, except for the occasional perfect photo :)

I wanted to share my smile with you. I feel an incredible sense of peace right now (that might also be because I'm exhausted from getting up at 5:30pm to shop like a mad woman!) No seriously, I'm truly thankful. After a year of tons of ups and downs I'm learning to stop, smile and enjoy everyone around me. Drink it in and tell everyone how much they mean to me.

Having said that...there's nothing like having the perfect meal with people you love! AND we had the perfect meal! Everything was so great! If I do say so myself.

Here's our beautiful turkey and more:



Isn't that a pretty bird? I knew Dave's mom would be proud of her baby/top chef son!


This is the reality of thanksgiving at it's height!


Of course, we can't forget the kiddy table! Like I was perfect!
