Being Thankful

This is one of my favorite mornings, 2nd only to Christmas morning. I love getting up in the morning and going in the kitchen to bake my pie and make final preparations, knowing that women all over the country are doing the same thing makes me feel a kinship with all of you. I can't wait to sit and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with my family and pour over the paper wondering if I will have enough energy to make the early morning trip out tomorrow morning. I thought I'd share a picture of the main table today. I will try to post a picture of the kids table later.

I'm thankful for all the love, friendship and happiness in my life today and always. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.



  1. Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Your table looks amazing ... warm and inviting.

  2. Your table looks really beautiful. I love the table cloth. The colour is lovely. Happy Thanksgiving to you.
    I just discovered your blog from Primrose Hill so I will enjoy having a good look now.

  3. Yep. I'd be glad to sit there and eat! I love the brown it transferware? Love the cloth and the little bowls.

  4. So elegant and pretty! And such a lovely room. We don't even have enough chairs for everyone, but one guest is bringing her own so we're good to go. Getting very hungry and anxious for the feast. Happy day to you.

  5. Your table looks fabulous! I was also really feeling a kinship while preparing our thanksgiving meal. Hope you had a wonderful day!
