Every year there are milestones met and firsts and lasts…this year we are back in the hometown where our children grew up for the most part and next year our daughter will be off to college. So much to be thankful for and reasons to celebrate. Everything on our table this year is something from my mom or sister, finds from a flea market, Ikea and sweet little bistro glasses from a friend after our trip to France together.I always see the quote, “what I love most about my home is the people with whom I share it” …or something like that–it’s all over Pinterest. It’s so true…our little family is something I don’t take for granted for one minute. This last photo always makes me think of the holidays. My sister and I were always sent to fetch our desk chairs to squeeze into a spot at the table. My mom used to say, “and don’t hit the walls on the way down!” as if! Funny how the holidays make you reminisce.
