over the river and through the woods: our family thanksgiving

Yes, we really did go "over the river and through the woods". Not to gather at Grandmother's house, but to that beloved cabin on the mountain. Higher elevation meant snow on the ground, adding even more to this beautiful coziness. We hunkered down, wrapped in blankets and warmed by the crackling fire. Cooking side by side. Football. Movies. Cousins. Dogs. Puzzles. Reading. Talking. Laughing. Traditional food favorites. And there was pie. Oh, the pie.  

Another Thanksgiving Day, tucked away in our heart's memory.

Hoping you, too:

Found beauty in the faces of those you love.
Relished in the sound of joyful laughter.
Filled your belly with scrumptious delights.
Made some happy, lovely memories that you tucked in your heart, as well.
Found a quiet moment to see all the good, all the abundance, all the fullness
that is your life.
Right now.
