I have talked about starting a blog for a long time and have finally have the courage. I am now going to try becoming a blogger *gasp*!! Many experiences over the last year have lead me to feel this would be good way to say what is on my mind, share good recipes I find, show the photos I have taken with my AWESOME new camera, new music finds, my travels, and keep all my friends around the world updated on the day ins, day outs of my life. (not that anyone other than me will find them interesting, but hey you never know.)
My FAVORITE holiday of all time is right around the corner I cannot wait. I LOVE THANKSGIVING!! There is no pressure, just fun, family, food and football... my favorite combination!! This will be a Thanksgiving unlike any other. Both of my Grandparents passed away this year, so this will be the first holiday my family has celebrated without them. I still remember last year my Grandmother's face as she slide down the table. Not all that conventional to just pull her chair down from one end of the table to the other, but much safer than having her walk. She told me as I was walking out with her that she felt like the "bell of the ball" since everyone wanted to spend time with her.
This Thanksgiving has a happy side to it also. This will be the first Thanksgiving my family will get to celebrate with the next generation. Adyson is the newest member of the family and I know she has already stolen everyone's heart. How could she not?? Just look at how adorable she is!!
This photo was from a month or so ago, but it is my favorite and I have so many more of her to share I figured I should start with my favorite. I cannot tell you how much I love holding the little girl. I have this wonderful calm come over me and I just feel happy.
I also I cannot wait to see my BFF Natalie!! I miss her so much and the last time I saw her we was getting married, so I did not even get to really see her. So sad that I will not get to see Stephanie though, I guess a full reunion will have to wait till Christmas!! Below is my favorite picture of us from Stephanie's rehearsal dinner almost two years ago. (girls we need to get we need to get an new picture this year FYI)
Anyway that is all I have for now, but I hope to post more tomorrow. A little teaser, I am taking a cake decorating class and it will document my attempt to prep for the first class and the result from the first and second class...
