Thanksgiving draws near
I had hopes of writing about my November goals. I'd given myself one of those "the end of the year is coming" pep-talks, which usually plays out more like "what the heck have you accomplished, Beth?" The last month of the year is next month and what do you have to show for it?
Well, it's been one heck of a year. We have a child (note: this is the first year we've had her the entire year). I transitioned jobs mid-year and about two months later my husband transitions jobs and Maggie went to full-time daycare. There has been a lot going on, so I'm going to cut myself some slack.
I know I don't need an excuse for not blogging. Life happens and just because I don't write about it, doesn't make it any less true.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it's been my favorite holiday for years. We don't usually have grand plans. In fact, we've only spent two of the last five turkey dinners with family.
None the less, our dining room is ready (don't mind the wrinkles in the table cloth or box that made its way into the above photo). We have thankful hearts for the many gifts we've been entrusted with and given. We are excited to celebrate and I feel as though I could explode when I think about all that 2014 brought to our little family.
