A thankful Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was busy as usual this year. Somehow, being a blogger and the daughter of a photographer I did not take one picture the entire weekend but that's okay, I want to share my wonderful thanksgiving anyway!
On Thursday Adam and I headed out to my parents house for lunch. My sister and mom really outdid themselves this year. Turkey, squash, dressing, macaroni, green beans and several desserts. Two tables were pushed together to create a huge square with 3 people on each side. My parents, sister, cousins, their wives, aunt, uncle and my sweet grandma Moon were all there. My grandma ate two of each dessert, including a cookie halfway through the meal! I love her.
We sat down for a delicious lunch at noon and did not rise until 5:15 that evening after some of the best conversation I've had in years. It's amazing and uplifting to surround yourself with people who will listen to your beliefs and politics and not judge.
I left on Thursday night feeling like my batteries were recharged. Thank you "mom's side" we had a wonderful day and we cannot wait to see you again soon.
We drove down to Auburn on Thursday night to see Adam's mom and step-dad. We enjoyed some ham and biscuits and visited until bedtime.
Friday morning we were up and out to tailgate for The Iron Bowl. We enjoyed our time with good friends. There is nothing like traveling back to Auburn. The love Adam and I share for the campus, the school, and the people is overwhelming.
Sadly Auburn could not pull off the upset on the #2 team in the nation, but we (and our fifth of jim beam) had a great time at the game!
We got to spend some time with Jon and Aften who traveled all the way from Charlotte and it is always good to see them.
We headed home on Saturday after lunch with Adam's dad, step-mom and sister.
I am so thankful for my family. All of them. They are good people. All of them.
I have thanked God so many times this weekend, for putting all of my blessings in front of me. For reminding me what is important in this life that we are given.
I hope you had a blessed thanksgiving holiday.
More from my Paleo kitchen soon!
