A Thanksgiving to be Thankful For

As I look through my “30 before 30” list, I see many items that I completed without even realizing it. I guess that means they are natural goals that I have set for myself.

Truth be told, my husband and I hosted Thanksgiving dinner a week after we moved into our first home.

We weren’t even married yet. *gasp*

It was the November we moved to Shreveport-Bossier. I had just finished breaking down the last box, when his parents pulled into the driveway. It was a major transitional time in our lives and it felt so good to have family around to make our home feel like home.

I didn’t even really have to cook.

Well, aside from making my famous from-scratch mashed potatoes. We sat around our dining room table (which was a steal on Craig’s List) and talked about things we were thankful for.

Three weeks later we were married.

Now, I sit in our home making plans for this year’s Thanksgiving. When you’re as busy as hubby and I are, you have to plan Thanksgiving in August. It’s amazing that just three weeks after this round up at the table, we will be celebrating two years of Mr. and Mrs.


And I secretly thank the Lord, were not hosting this year.
