I just had to share that this has been a wonderful Thanksgiving! There's just something about spending the entire day with the love of my life that makes everything else a little better. This was the first year without grandma there, it was tough and she was greatly missed but definitely not forgotten. I made her famous dumplings and they turned out exactly the way she used to make them which is what I had hoped for, even though the recipe I received wasn't exact and my mom had to clarify exactly what grandma did they were delicious! We had an early meal and then visited with everyone for a bit before heading home. It rained... and rained some more, but in spite of the rain we enjoyed our travels and talked a lot which is something we really needed to do together. Home around 5 and have been watching movies, just the three of us cuddling on the couch in our pjs!
We did run to the store and I just have to mention there are people standing out in the rain all the way around Best Buy and Toys R Us! WHAT THE HECK! Its cold and rainy and people are standing outside waiting for the store to open!? Nonsense! I did my shopping online in the comfort of my nice warm home but to each their own! Someone should go sell coffee and hot chocolate!
Thankful for today!
