I have found so many new and wonderful blogs recently, wondering to myself, where have you been hiding all of this time. So much inspiration and I realized alot of it is from meet and greets.
I am just so thankful for everything these days and would like to repay the kindness and in the process, give you a chance to meet some new friends. Tomorrow I am throwing a party of sorts but there is a specific theme to the party. Thankfulness. Now I couldn’t just make it for Thanksgiving as not everyone reading here is from America and I wanted everyone to feel included.
So what you need to do if you want to come to the party, is write a blog about a memory of Thanksgiving or a certain thing that you are thankful for. Leave a link in the comments section and I will pick four random posts or more to reblog through the holiday season. There is so much talent out there and whether it be photos or writing, it doesn’t matter and make sure you check everyone else out while you are there. I ask that as a family friendly blog you keep it clean. Any naked girls/boys will be deleted….after all, I have little ones who read (not mine of course) but they are out there.
So what I am most thankful for/happy memory of Thanksgiving:
As a child we were always bundled up into the family car and trecked over to my Grandparents house. Now my grandmother was a cook and it was always fun to see the big picture window completely steamed up as you knew there was some good things brewing inside. The house would feel like a steambath from the kettles of mashed potatoes and the turkey nestled in the oven. I always liked to sit underneath the table at the grownups legs and listen to them talk, pretending they couldn’t see me.
Now I realize I am far from invisible but they played along. We had to eat at the little kids table when it was time for supper and as we got older, we were teenagers sitting still at the little kids table. I only cared about the pumpkin pie and had fun hanging with my cousins, feeding the dog under the table the things we didn’t like, and I think by the time dinner was over, the poor dog could barely move. Although I don’t think he ate the lima beans, those we threw in the fireplace…no one used it and I wondered how long it took grandma while cleaning to realize the stashes of food hidden in the back behind the fire grate?
It has been many years, my Grandparents long since gone and the cousins now off married with kids or dogs of their own. We don’t do the big family events anymore and now for the world I think Black Friday has taken over the joy of family times. I am Thankful for those memories and of course for the pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream. So Mom, if you’re reading this, please send over a slice or two, or three, hell, just send over the whole thing. I promise to clean my plate.
Okay peeps, your turn, let me and the world know your favorite story, memory or just what you are Thankful for. Posts will begin to be reblogged Tuesday 11-24-15 just in time for the long holiday weekend (or at least it is for me) I am soooo excited and can’t wait to read your lovely stories and see any photos too.
