why? as in why on earth am i stopping mid-clipboard of our pre-thanksgiving to-do list to craft? well, my friends, the answer is simple :: because.
because it calms me. because it allows me to take a much needed step back to inhale + exhale and get into a more soothing rhythm than the hustle + bustle situtation i have going on these days. sorry i haven't checked in in so long - all is well in our world save a few runny noses, deep deep coughing spells and more than a mountain of wonderful stuff to accomplish before thursday....
if i think about all that must be done because there will be 15 people here in 48 hours (yikes!), then the joy will be lost. so i take a step back. breathe. think about how blessed we are to have people we love here in our home to celebrate all that we are thankful for. and smile, knowing that since it's my first turkey, expectations are low - it's bound to be a hit as long as everything is cooked and i remember to take the giblet bag out. am i right?
there, that's better. now where's my clipboard...
my warmest wishes to you and yours for a happy thanksgiving! xoxo
