We’ll be taking a break from our usual Friday post this week to spend time enjoying the holiday with our families. Before heading off to be with them, I just wanted to take a moment to say if you follow our blog, or just drop by to read a post or two on occasion, we are thankful that you do!
In a moment I’ll be off to start the day in our usual way. We’ll have a light breakfast – you need to save room for the main event – and then we’ll sit down with a glass of apple cider to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade before starting our dinner preparations. The parade brings back many good memories for me – and countless millions of others no doubt!
I will always remember my mother watching part of the parade before heading off to the kitchen to start getting the turkey ready to go in the oven. As she left to get to work she would always say to us “call me when Santa arrives!” She loved the holiday season, particularly Christmas and she loved to see how Santa would look each year. Just as fun are the new memories we add each year watching our son view the parade through his eyes and all of the excitement that comes as each new balloon goes by!
I hope that however you spend your day, it is filled with happiness as you create new memories. Happy Thanksgiving!
