I admit it...
I heart Thanksgiving!
The warmth of the Autumn sun and colorful Thanksgiving bouquets ~
The endless blue sky in my out of the way neighborhood ~
Golden star leaves ~
Natures confetti ~
What a fun and busy Thanksgiving week I had....
For the first time in a few years, I found myself in the pit ~
Oh how I adore Epica
I know, I know...I don't seem like the type that would listen to Symphonic Metal, but I just adore it. I listen to their CDs while I work in my studio ~
It was so much fun standing at the outside of the circle pit. So much energy and life. A really big guy stepped on my foot in the frenzy, but that's okay. It was all in good fun!
Then...a few days later ~
A book signing with the fabulous author and grand wearer of pink hair...
Laini is truly a gifted and inspirational author. She is always so nice and she always remembers my daughter and me. ♥♥
I am so thankful for music and books. Do you like music and books?
Do you remember that I posted a photo of this treasure a few weeks ago?
Yes...a conjoined pumpkin.
I am in love with this giant and orange double thing. I am such a lucky girl for finding it. Well, guess what! Of all the people in the world, I found another treasure last week ~
Yes...that's right. A conjoined potato!!
How lucky am I?
Isn't it or aren't they spectacular?
Yes, everyone in my house has already discussed what they look like, but I won't mention that. Plus, I don't care. I love it/them.
I am thankful for small surprises and heartful treasures.
Hand written recipes left behind by my mom.
Treasures indeed ~
Sometimes, when I'm cooking a holiday meal, I find myself picking up the phone to call my mom and ask for cooking advice. Then the burning in my heart reminds me that she's gone. Together again with my dad.
Thanksgiving in my home is warm and simple. Too much food and my immediate family (just the 5 of us).
This picture makes me giggle. I didn't realize it until I looked at the photo, but my 3 guys had already grabbed their plates off the table. The photo shows 5 place settings and only 2 plates...my daughter's and my own. The guys had already taken their plates to the serving area and were huddled around the food ~
I am thankful. I am thankful for my family and for my Everydays.
I am thankful for music and books and memories.
I am thankful for the opportunity to work from home in my little studio.
I am thankful for my Art ~
