You knew it was coming! How could a holiday celebration go by without me sharing it with you? I do enjoy reading other Post-Thanksgiving blog posts to see how other people around the world celebrate the holiday. It’s interesting to see how you: decorate your home, do you have a casual or a formal dinner, do you dress up in fancy clothes, do you eat stuffing or dressing, or cranberry sauce from the can or homemade? But most importantly and regardless of how you do it, it’s the fact that you are doing it—sharing a day of thanksgiving with the most important people in your life. The definition is still the same. 🙂
Here’s how I spent my holiday.
We were in Birmingham (hallelujah, it’s not Maryland or Colorado anymore) with my family and started our Thanksgiving morning with a walk.
Lunch was casual and we enjoyed it sitting on the back patio in the beautiful weather. My nieces made us custom name tags for our glasses and table setting…one for Mamie and one for Clarky.
And because I don’t eat dairy and most dessert choices include some sort of a dairy ingredient, here’s what I had for dessert instead. Heaven. In. A. Bowl. Seriously.
And later that night, we were amongst the other crazies who stood in line to
fight for triumph in all the fab bargains.
Ready for battle. Warning: This is what happens to you when you’re out shopping at midnight.
One of my favorite purchases….get ready…..two things I don’t have access to in my small, country-fied, little neck o’ the woods….
Family + personalized mason jars + laughter + fitness + almond flour and julienne peelers = a Happy Thanksgiving.
What are you thankful for this year?
