It is funny to wake up today and not have to clean a turkey while watching the parade. I feel a little lost because this year I will be a guest and not the chef. Weird! Also it is our first Thanksgiving away from home. I know I have my husband and dogs here, but I will miss the little things. I will miss eating breakfast with my mom and dad, (I can almost smell the maple sausage lingering in the air) I will miss watching the dog show and It's a Wonderful Life with my mom, as she nags me to get things going even though we aren't eating for 6 hours. I will miss waiting for my sister and her family (they are always late coming over to my parents house.) I will miss taking days and days of prep work and planning to have a really great 15 minute meal! I will miss running over to Yia Yia's house to have her amazing pie. (even though she was generous enough to give me her recipe, it still is better when she makes it.) I miss talking with Travis' family all afternoon as I struggle to stay awake!
I am very blessed to have my wonderful sister (no sarcasm there at all for once.) and her family. I am very blessed to have my energetic dogs. I am blessed that I haven't chased my husband off with my crazy hormonal rollercoaster that I am on! (and also that he is understanding and will totally plays along with my requests!) I am beyond words blessed that I am pregnant. And with that I would like to wish you and all yours a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!
