Thanksgiving Came Early

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! 

I got lucky and was able to celebrate Thanksgiving a day early ;)

For yet another year in a row, my mother-in-law, Joni, hosted a perfectly executed Thanksgiving dinner. Joni is the Queen of Hosting, and I’m always in awe of how she remains so cool, calm and collected. If I had to have a clean house, look presentable, and have seven different dishes ready at the same time, I’d need a Xanax.

I’m also always so impressed by her little touches that make everything so festive.

It was a wonderful night!

So today, as I sit around relaxed and without a plan to call my own, I find myself eternally grateful for the awesome life I have.

I’m crazy about my husband, I adore my amazing family, I have the best friends, and I have my health. Really, there is nothing more I could possibly ask for.

Enjoy your day, folks! I hope it’s filled with love and tons of good food ;)

Let’s chat – Tell me something/someone you’re thankful for today!

    You didn’t see it? Right there on the menu between turkey and mashed potatoes it clearly said Xanax. When you are as old as dirt you too will have the hosting thing perfected, just in time, it turns out, to turn it over to the next generation. Hope you have a guest as easy to please and spend time with as I have in you. Happy, Happy Thanksgiving. PS: thanks for being crazy about my boy.

    Today is my re-birthday — it was a year ago that I made the decision to leap into recovery!! I was flailing at first, but now I’m flying!! I’m incredibly grateful for all the friends and family who helped me every step of the way — I couldn’t have done it without them. :)
