My First Thanksgiving
Tomorrow will be the very first time I have ever hosted Thanksgiving dinner in my home. I am looking forward to it so much more than I ever thought I would.
Not that the thought had never crossed my mind. I knew that someday it would be my turn, I just figured that it would be once my parents were quite a bit older. But, this year, CSB came up with the idea of having dinner here, with my family, in our home. Our first major holiday since moving in together, and we are hosting dinner.
Long gone are the days of the housewife slaving over the stove all day in her heels, dress, and apron. Everyone is pitching in: dad is grilling the turkey (yes, you heard me!), mom is making the stuffing, yams, and pumpkin pie, CSB is doing the potatoes and veggies, I am in charge of a salad, cheesecake, and wine (muahahaha!). In the end it will all come together as one fabulous meal.
Most importantly, I will be surrounded with people that I am so very thankful for, every day.
