Thanksgiving 2011

I think I am ready to do thanksgiving this year. Last year I was very sad....very very sad and I couldn't even get out of bed. On the actual day I got a horrible flu as well as basically crying every moment I was awake. I have had a LONG year of growth and healing. Still working thru a lot but I think I can take on Thanksgiving.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE thanksgiving. I love everything about it....fall, apples, pumpkins, cranberry, turkey....all the favorite things in my life.

So...the plans are beginning....deep in my head. I started a Pinterest board and will use this post to make notes as I come up with ideas.
