I love these two pictures of me and my Mom taken at my wedding shower almost 13 years ago. Like many of you out there, I've spent most of this day getting a start on Thanksgiving cooking and while I was alone in the kitchen, I really wasn't. I had my Momma there keeping me company, tucked into my heart like she always is, but especially at Thanksgiving. This was her favorite holiday. Her Thanksgiving spread was her pride and joy and with good reason. She was an amazing cook. I never miss my Mom more or think of her more than I do during the two days of cooking I do for this holiday.
This year it's just our little family and I am feeling thankful for that. I'm also feeling thankful that I'm cooking our meal in my finished (mostly) kitchen! Pictures to come soon, I promise.
I'm trying hard not to race past Thanksgiving to Christmas but it has been a struggle this year. I've been told that I have to wait two hours after we eat before I can start decorating for Christmas, I presume, like swimming, to avoid getting stomach cramps? So at aproximately 4:30 tomorrow I will be diving into the tinsel.
I hope you are all enjoying the process and not stressing out too much. Happy Thanksgiving to you.
