Today is my second favorite holiday of the year and it’s all about three of the best things in life: tradition, gratitude, and food!  Today, I am thankful for so many things, for my family, for my friends, for my health, and all the little blessings that bring happiness everyday. Today I am thankful for those of you who continue to visit here, you make my dream job a reality and I am forever grateful to you.   

I’m so looking forward to the traditional meal we prepare every year, and the opportunity to spend the evening with family and friends. Today is a day of reflection and relaxation and I plan to savor every moment and morsel from the stuffing to the pie to the conversation around the table. I’m wishing all of my American friends the very same as we celebrate on this holiday.          happy thanksgiving collection

Cheers to good food and great memories!  Safe travels too.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to my baby brother Nate today. How cool to have your birthday fall on Thanksgiving, he gets his own personal pumpkin pie all to himself.  Awesome.

  1. My third child’s birthday is also today! He is six. We love Thanksgiving babies!

    And um, cough, cough. The boquet in your photos is stunning but more so is the price tag! What?? Now I’m inspired to make something like that myself.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Hi Kate, I am very thankful for you and your very inspirational and informative blog. I don’t comment much although I read daily :)
