My family and I are heading south to Dallas this Thanksgiving weekend. I can’t remember the last time we weren’t the ones entertaining family for Thanksgiving and I’m feeling a little torn about the fact that I’m not preparing for our out-of-town guest arrival. Typically I would be standing in my kitchen baking pies and desserts about now and enjoying all the smells that come with the Thanksgiving holiday. Instead, I’m cleaning, packing and getting ready for 12-14 hour drive that awaits us. Still, we’ll be with family and celebrating Naomi’s first Thanksgiving. That is the most important thing, especially this year with the loss of Ben still being such a strong force in our lives.
To those of you traveling this holiday weekend, I wish you safe travels and to everyone I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
