Thanksgiving was filled with chilly weather, warm cups of coffee, delicious food and tons of laughter. I was planning on waking up super early to finish my cooking and baking, but that didn't happen (surprise, surprise). It was my first day off and I wanted to sleep in. My morning was kind of a blur. I watched bits and pieces of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade while rushing to finish everything up.
One broccoli casserole, two pumpkin pies and two dozen deviled eggs later, we were ready to head to my brother's house. It was finally cold enough to throw on a jacket and pull out my boots. I even tossed on a scarf (for like the first time, ever). I was so incredibly thankful to be surrounded by the people I love most. Before everyone filled their bellies, we went around the table and shared what we were thankful for. Some were goofy, but others were heartwarming. It was nice to focus on our blessings instead of the hardships this life can bring.
