Thanksgiving is a few days away and I am so excited. Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday… I don’t know if its because of all the food we eat and make (which probably is the reason) BUT… I love the smells, the feel of the holiday, the colors and coming together with family and friends and being thankful of one another.
I start preparing my Thanksgiving meal weeks in advance and have a countdown of when to prep items and purchase as well. This year my husbands family is coming in town and we are all gathering at my in-laws house. We set-up our Menu weeks ago and of course we all claim what we are bringing for extravaganza, because we always have more than enough food and PLUS nothing is better than Thanksgiving leftovers. I love Thanksgiving so much that because I’m not hosting it this year I am making a small turkey for us to have for our house so I can do so many things with after…
