The best (American) holiday?

So tomorrow it's Thanksgiving... You know, the fourth Thursday in November when Americans sit around for an entire day, eat lots and lots of food and feel generally thankful about stuff? ...Truly a wonderful concept if you ask me, and one that I have happily adopted even though I didn't grow up with the tradition. Every year, Sean's parents host a big dinner at their place on the beach: It's always a party complete with a huge turkey, homemade cranberry sauce and trimmings, a crackling fire, beautiful table settings, and most importantly - a ton of happy relatives and friends... (Sean may be an only child but he sure has a gigantic extended family!) This evening, I am already excited by the thought of tomorrow and how lovely I know it will be.

And here (in no particular order :) are some of the other things I feel especially grateful for right now...

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you are just stumbling onto TJ MAXX you have been missing out. My kids think TJ MAXX is part of the grocery store, we go there so often! It's a modern day treasure hunt and I for one, love that place, recession or no recession. Happy Thanksgiving you two - enjoy the tradition!

Haha - This is perfect, because it was actually you who introduced me to TJ years ago. (By showing me a great bag you got there, think it might have been Coach? Anyway, Sean and I promptly stopped at the Tacoma branch om our way home and I have been a dutiful costumer ever since...) And for this I am eternally thankful to you :) Because really, what's not to like? A bargain is a bargain is a bargain. (I guess I should just drop the pretence ;) Happy Thanksgiving Lizzie x
