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!
