This was my second year hosting thanksgiving. It was even better than last year, with even better food (all gluten free, of course).
We enjoyed the warm weather they week offered and lovely company of family. Our table was simple, yet plentiful (just finished off the leftovers today with turkey soup!).
(And no this isn’t my house, my friends went out of town and offered their home, and their amazing kitchen to us! THANKS! )
I am so thankful for this past year. Its had ups and downs, but in the end I am thankful for all that has happened. This year I decided to start a new tradition, a Thanks-Garland. I saw this idea on Pinterest, and I loved it. Its great to take the time to write down things that I am thankful for over the year, it helps me see the things that Lord has done over this year. He is oh so faithful.
This is now hanging on our Christmas Tree! I hope to make this a tradition and keep each Garland, and one day be able to look back and see the things that God did over the years. (You can have your own too here!)
And what is a visit to Chattanooga without a little bit of hiking?
I forgot to get a picture of the whole family, but it was a good time! So thankful for Thanksgiving.
P.S. Come December 1st, my whole blog will be available on www.handmadebymindy.com (more details later!)
