{Happy Thanksgiving!}

Today I’m thankful for:

– cool weather
– the opportunity to host our first Thanksgiving
– the folks that work at all the places I’ve had to shop in the last 2 days (and today)
– my family near and far
– my grandmother’s china
– naturally raised turkey that’s perfect for our first turkey/brining attempt
– grace
– our new {table}
– Disney vacations
– my loving, forgiving and ever gracious husband

What are y’all thankful for, friends?
