Are you ready for Thanksgiving? This year the prep in our household is all happening last minute because we have had so many other things going on. Our Thanksgiving meal is much more of a production than Christmas, so I'll be in the kitchen nearly every waking moment from now until the food is on the table! Lots of love is being poured into every detail!
Keeping a gratitude journal for the month of November has really helped me to realize how much I have to be thankful for, and I love that at this time of year we all become more deliberate about saying so! Little things mean a lot...setting a beautiful table and cooking "family heirloom" recipes are tangible ways to express the love we share for each other!
I used a lovely dip pen that I purchased as a souvenir from Venice to calligraph our names on some hand-stamped Thanksgiving place cards. They're simple but the sparkle of gold ink, gold glitter washi tape and the rich colors of the Fall leaf brads make them elegant and traditional.
Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving, and every day all year through!
