in less than 24 hours our family will be here.

we all can't wait!

the girls have been beading bracelets for their grandma and aunts and i have donned my best fall apron.

starting 2 days early is the only way i can keep sane on the big day. after 3 years in a row of roasting birds i'm grateful to have learned a thing or two.

on the list for today: featherlight rolls, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes.

tomorrow i'll brine the bird and start the stuffing.

there is something so satisfying about spending days in my apron prepping for the feast. i love it - each and every step.

and when it's over i love lying around chatting with my favorite people - stuffed bellies and tired eyes included. i love the board games and laughter that follow and the cool walks around the neighborhood.



all is good in gratitude.



i can almost taste it!

travel safe and well gardiners! we are ready for you!
