Prepping for Thanksgiving


I love Thanksgiving! This is one of my favorite times of the year is when family is brought together to eat amazing food and celebrate all our many blessings. Mostly because I love good food and people. This year we are having thanksgiving again at my home and I’m looking forward to all the festivities. I normally wake up and get the turkey in the oven but this year my husband is going to be smoking the turkey.  Thanksgiving morning is usually spent prepping and planning the delicious food and I enjoy every minute of it! This entire day I think about the joys in my life, fun memories, happiness, and all my many blessings. One thing I’m really thankful for is the people in my life that includes my husband, family, and friends.

Thanksgiving is a day to be grateful and remember how truly blessed we are!  Enjoy, and embrace it my dear friends!
