Weekly Image of Life: Stories and Photographs

I love Thanksgiving.  Every year our home was the one with the open door policy, and friends we hadn’t seen in ages would always show up just in time for dinner!  ;)  As adults this has still been the case, with my mom welcoming everyone as family.  I’m extremely excited to say that even though she and my stepdad are settling into their new home in Georgia, we will be joining them for a Turkey Day feast! 

This was Thanksgiving dinner last year, and by far my favorite pregnancy moment, lol. Several dishes, including the desserts, aren’t even pictured! My mouth still waters…

My relatives thrive on story-telling around the dinner table, and my husband (who will be meeting many of them for the first time) will be in for a treat!  I believe the current head count is somewhere between 23-25 of my aunts, cousins, and friends who will be joining us this year, and I can’t wait for the laughter, full bellies, and fond memories that will be made!

The Weekly Image Of Life challenge is issued every Wednesday by The Island Traveler at This Man’s Journey. If you would like to participate and see other entries please visit here!

  1. I am excited for you. Visiting your parents in Georgia and introducing your beautiful daughter and loving husband. This is the essence of Thanksgiving. Being around your family who shares your joys and pain, and yes, over a delicious turkey and more. I will be joining my sister in Connecticut which I have not see for 6 years in person. I will see his two year old boy for the first time too. I can’t wait. God bless you and your family. Have a safe journey.

    • That songs like a wonderful time IT! I’ll also be string my brother, and I can’t wait for him to finally meet his niece! I’ll be praying for the safe travels of you and your family and I know we’ll all have so much to share when we return!
