Did you know Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? It is. Last year, I was eating for two at Thanksgiving. Actually, I was eating for two, then trying not to throw it up when I brushed my teeth before bed. (Hi Karen! Remember all the horrible retching noises coming from your downstairs bathroom?) This year, I can blame the huge pile of food covered in gravy on the extra calories needed for breastfeeding. Next year, well, it’ll be back to sensible eating, I guess.
We leave tomorrow morning for Appleton. Sam and Sophie are being baptized together on Sunday and then it’s off to Minneapolis to celebrate Turkey Day. I have much to be thankful for this year, like every year. I’m married to a wonderful man, have a beautiful baby boy, the best family ever, friends near and far (well, mostly far), and knitting projects piled up to my armpits. What more could a girl ask for?
