Yay! Yay! Yay! The holiday season has officially begun! I LOVE it! I don't know what it is that makes me so giddy this time of year, but the chill in the air (sorry GA peeps, that you haven't experienced this yet, its coming I'm sure of it!), the Christmas music playing in every store, people going out of their way to consider others, the realization that we are celebrating the most beautiful gift this world has ever received, its just too much!
Today I had so much fun preparing for out Thanksgiving lunch and my kitchen smelled lovely all day long. I'm not saying that I'm the greatest cook, but I have a mother, and she is, so I had some sweet recipes to work with. Tomorrow I will make my very first turkey and make my first pan of dressing that my grandfather always made. I would love to be with extended family on this day but this is a good experience for me, forcing me to make the things that I always just let my mom make. I'm a Gini in progress!
Not only is tomorrow Thanksgiving but tonight we had our first snow that actually stuck! Its beautiful but it was too dark for me to take a good pic... maybe tomorrow. Well, blessings and a happy Thanksgiving to all!
