Each year that passes feels busier than the one before even when the majority of activities are completely different. This year is no exception. I’m not traveling 2-3 days a week as a baseball mom or volunteering at every school activity but still, the time went too fast. This year gives me much to be thankful for – our new home, a new dining table (as of Tuesday) from which we served our families today, a stable career full of growth opportunities, a loving spouse, another year of good health and an expanded extended family.
The past few weeks as the temperature has started to dip we are enjoying the heat from our fireplace and easing up on the electric bill.
As the first official year we have hosted both sides of our family we had lots to be excited about and as a result I made about twice as much food as necessary. Yeah for leftovers!
I am looking forward to many more meals at the dining room table and more time visiting with friends and family by the fireplace.
