Fall is here and Halloween has passed. That means only one thing. Thanksgiving is on its way. I look forward to my cousin’s smoked turkey and the family’s cranberry relish and of course pumpkin pie. More importantly is family. Every year our family gathers together and celebrates together – stuffing ourselves with great food and good laughter. Each year I… Continue reading
By now I hope everyone has enjoyed their turkey, been stuffed with stuffing and got their delicious piece of pumpkin pie loaded with whipped cream. I hope you were all surrounded by those you love and that the mood was one of peace and love.
This year I took time to be thankful for all the wonderful… Continue reading
Okay, so really by last I am talking about those details you take care of in the last two to three days before Thanksgiving…or any party.

Perhaps it is because it puts my keen organization skills and detailed eye to good use and somewhat honors the control freak in me. Regardless I love entertaining!
