I also have one of the world’s most amazing, hilarious, boisterous families, so what’s not to love about a weekend full of family and food? Today, I wanted to do a quick post before the craziness begins to reflect on what I am thankful for this year. In no particular order, cause that is just torture to me. What follows is purely stream of consciousness – watch out. Obviously – this blog … Continue reading THANKSGIVING WEEK!
