We spent the early part of the day with my boyfriend's family and then raced home to host my family at our very first Thanksgiving dinner in our new house. I'm not much of a cook so Chris handled the whole meal for us - even busting out the sweet potato casserole that we fell in love with from Ruth's Chris steak house! Yum! I know for a fact that he has new found respect for HIS mom and all of her hard work in the kitchen.
Chris' family does something really neat on Thanksgiving. They go around the table and ask everyone to share what they are most thankful for while we eat. His niece and nephew take charge and make sure that everyone has a turn - it's sweet. It reminded me to take a minute to really soak up the idea of gratitude in the midst of all the festivities.
I'm feeling grateful for all of our FRIENDS & FAMILY this year!
