Happy Thanksgiving



My kitchen is clean and closed for the night, my ingredients are prepped for tomorrow and my schedule is written out, so while Charlie is at basketball practice I thought I'd pop on here and share a few pictures of our table setting, since I had time to capture it my good camera today.  No promises for tomorrow though.  After I publish this post,  I plan to put away my camera. phone and computer for a few days and just be present and enjoy time with the people I love most.  Hey family, did you hear that?  I won't make you pose holding a plate of food! :) You're welcome.  As for my game plan that I published earlier in the week.... Well, I made a few changes... I ended up baking a pumpkin pie and my Mum made the glazed onion relish (we'd each rather make what we ended up making.  Pearl onion peeling isn't my favorite.)  I also ended up buying a whole bird rather than just a breast - it just didn't feel festive enough without a whole bird.  Nevermind we only eat the breast meat and carve it up before going to the table so no one really sees it but me.  Especially now, since I just vowed to stay off Instagram and put my camera away...  I also skipped the gratin.  It was a beautiful day today and after making a few sides I wanted to get outside and bike to the park with my boys.  Otherwise though, I'm right on track. ;)

So with a thankful heart, I hope tomorrow brings you the chance to celebrate and reflect on the things in life for which you are most grateful.  I thank you for reading this blog, whether you leave comments or not, whether you've read from the beginning or just discovered me today.  I'm thankful to be part of such a supportive  and creative community here and on Instagram, you all encourage me more than you know.  Many blessings to all.   xx


^^ I wasn't quite sure how my table would turn out this year but I LOVE it. I had ordered a beautiful set of scalloped antique pewter plates that didn't arrive in time. (They'll be making an appearance for Christmas brunch instead).  This gorgeous blue and white bowl was a birthday gift from Jimmy and I'm so glad it worked for a centerpiece too.  It sits on our table all the time.  It's from Wisteria.)  Flowers are anchored in Oasis. ^^
