Happy Thanksgiving to all! We have so much to be thankful for. Enjoy your family and friends on this beautiful day!

There’s something so wonderful in going to extra effort to create a meal to share with those you love. There’s a certain buzz in our household, a kind of manic, happy energy just knowing that the extra work involved in getting everything ready, is the knowledge that the meal is way more than the food. It’s the kids coming home, the guests arriving, the sounds of chatter and music playing, the hugs, the hours of catching up …

It’s love and thankfulness.

It’s not so much what’s on the table that matters, as what’s on the chairs
-W.S. Gilbert
