If you know me personally or been reading my blog for some time, then you know I don't tend to keep things simple.
By definition,"The quality or condition of being plain or natural" is not ...well, natural for me.
And of course, in my mind, this years Thanksgiving celebration was gonna be nothing short of spectacular. I've been pinning ideas like crazy. I've seen so many amazing creative stuff from many of you fellow bloggy friends..and let me tell you, I couldn't wait for for this Thursday to get here. I was so ready to have all the extra touches to make my home so festive and make my family feel so special.
Well....then life happened.
And one kidney infection later, I've been knocked down for the count. Fever and chills for three days have kicked my butt and I have had to throw in the towel and surrender.
Hence, my new plan for simplicity.
It kinda was forced on me but I'm actually looking forward to it.
Yeah, I won't have those adorable edible turkey's on each place setting, and I won't be going out to my shed to pull out the box of Thanksgiving glasses and dishes. I won't be using all the fun ideas I was gonna create for Rosalyn's Tangled birthday party that we are gonna have for her while all the family is together.
Nope.None of that is gonna happen.
We are gonna have plenty of food to eat.
We are gonna have a Tangled Party...the scaled down version.
Rosalyn will have a cute birthday cake...I just won't be making it.
And most of all....I will be together with all my family...
My best friend/husband, all three of my girls and their men, my three grandbabies, my momma and step-dad and my mom-n-law and my brother.
When it all comes down to it...that's what is all about anyways...
Just being together with the ones you love and who love you back.
