This is the first year that I won't be spending the holiday with my extended family, as the hubs and I are having ourselves a mini vacation in the Colorado mountains. Nothing says winter is almost here like lots of fresh snow at a ski resort in Crested Butte!
It is timely though, considering this is our first year as a married couple and we're spending our Thanksgiving at a hotel spa (relaxation = happiness) and enjoying the Eagles vs Cowboys game (Fly Eagles Fly!) with just one another in our hotel room. While very different from the hustle and bustle of our normal family meal (my hubby's Aunt always has a marvelous spread for fam) it is nice that we are starting our own traditions together. I hope the hotel restaurant is offering some amazing green bean casserole...
So, even though I am only able to spend today with hubby, I am thinking of those near and far - and am so blessed to be a part of your lives.
Enjoy your day of feasting with loved ones - and never forget how precious these moments are. I'll be thinking of you Dad - I'm sure the turkey in Heaven is AMAZING. <3
