I love Thanksgiving. A holiday which centers around feeling gratitude and love for family rather than gift giving/receiving really is something special. We usually travel to family (since none of our family lives nearby) for Thanksgiving and enjoy our time in the car together as well as with extended family once we arrive.
Last year, however, we stayed home and my parents came out to our house for the holiday. Thanksgiving this year has even more meaning since it will have marked the last time my parents came out to our house to visit before my Dad passed away. It was really special to have them in our home as we hosted the Thanksgiving festivities for once. Although we were officially the hosts, my Dad still taught me how to do the turkey “his way,” let me in on the secret of his incredible pie crusts and taught our kids the art of the “one-handed egg crack.”
We relished this time, as we knew he was sick, and Thanksgiving now has extra special meaning to me & my little family. You had better believe we will be replicating his pie crusts and attempting the one-handed egg cracks every year from now on!
As I looked at the Target dinnerware collection from this year I was blown away at how gorgeous it is! I would have loved to have served up my special Thanksgiving feast on this…
Gorgeous, rich colors that would make any Thanksgiving meal even more memorable. I’m thinking a trip to Target is in my future and (at least) one of those platters will be coming home with me for all the future turkeys I will be roasting my “Dad’s way!”
