Thank YOU!

It's Thanksgiving week and I'm excited. Traffic on the interstates will soon be moving at a snail's pace. Do you have to experience it? One year, traffic was so bad my younger brother turned his car off while sitting on the interstate to conserve gas. It's crazy. Airports are equally as hectic. Not only are there thousands of people trying to fly home, but then the weather could change quickly create a logistical nightmare. Why do we do it?

Happy Thanksgiving!

How will you celebrate Thanksgiving this year? Will you be traveling to spend the holiday with family? Or will you be entertaining guests at your house? I will be cooking a feast, beginning Tuesday, preparing everyone’s favorite dishes for the big meal on Thursday. It is one of my favorite times of the year because I love to cook and have people gathered in our home. We have a tradition of inviting friends who don’t have family close by to join ours for the holiday celebration. Another of our traditions is to have everyone share what they are thankful for [...]
