oh darling, i’m thankful for you.

If I told you about our Thanksgiving from the beginning, I’d say that we tucked ourselves into his old, faithful BMW and set out for New Jersey hours before dawn on a cold, rainy morning.  And that dog snored in the back seat the entire way.

If I told you about our Thanksgiving in reverse, I’d say that we got sand in our shoes and felt the cold, salty ocean wind in our hair.

In between were all the beautiful details: friends and family hugged; sweet potatoes sprinkled with butter and sugar; centerpieces created and arranged just so;  tables set up, dressed, and gathered around.  Mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pearl onions, and vegetarian stuffing consumed in shocking amounts.  Fires built, then huddled around, and cigars smoked {a little}.  Many, many pages of books read while pajamas were guiltlessly worn.  Dogs played with, cuddled with, and dressed up in sweaters; dogs everywhere, in fact, including our sweet boy for his first-ever visit.

And of course, a whole lot of thankfuls spoken, unspoken, and now written here.
