Happy Thanksgiving and One Very Long Table

Today is Thanksgiving. In a few hours, I will gather around a very long table with the beautiful family I was lucky enough to marry into. It's a very long table because my husband's 94 year old grandmother insists that each and every person sit at one table. There are 12 adults and 12 children to fit this year, so we add card tables end to end and a few people literally eat in the hallway. But we're at one table! As I get older I am increasingly more aware of how rare it is to actually enjoy the members of one's family and not just tolerate them once or twice a year. I'm blessed to genuinely love and like these people. They say there's also that one 'crazy' family member that's weird and eccentric and awkward. Since I don't think we have anyone like that, I should probably assume that it's me.

I'm also grateful for this space, my blog, to share my passions, my creative self, with you. Thank you for being here. There is a lot of transition going on in my life right now and it's not painless, but I know that in the end it is going to be an even better version of my life, which, without a doubt is already pretty crazy great. So Happy Thanksgiving. Gather your family near and love on someone who is missing their loved ones. And finally, thank God for the beauty we get to enjoy in each other and the world around us, lest we forget.
