We are now less than a week away from Thanksgiving! RELAX…don’t get stressed about whether it will all turn out as perfect as you want it. It will all come together and everyone will enjoy it. Hey, Didn’t the Griswold’s? Okay, that was Christmas. But still, that turkey. It can always be salvaged with enough gravy, right?
A funny story about our last Thanksgiving (although it wasn’t funny at the time)…I went to fill the laundry room sink to bleach something and walked off, leaving the water running. About 20-30 minutes later I came downstairs for something else and there it was, water pouring over the sink and onto our laundry room floor and den carpet. I had so much to clean up and even more to do now since family would arrive several hours later. Guess what? Not everything was perfect, but we sat down, had a delicious meal, and lots of good conversation and laughter. And the kids went down in the family room to play the Wii, with fans blowing all around them, still drying the damp carpet. The water didn’t ruin anything and now we have a good story to laugh about…might as well!
This week, I want to feature links for recipes and decorative ideas for your Thanksgiving get-together. First, I want to show you this beautiful Thanksgiving table from Sue at A Purdy Little House. Isn’t it lovely? She always has such beautiful style and fun DIY ideas.
