I had full intentions of getting a few posts out last week with the long weekend and holiday break; but I was enjoying my time “off” far too much. But, I hope you all had a blessed and happy thanksgiving this past week. B and I were lucky enough to have three thanksgivings and spend some time with friends in between too.
Our Thanksgiving was a bit reshuffled this year, we normally have two on the actual day, but one was early so we only had an evening dinner. We had the whole day to ourselves, it was kind of amazing! Knowing this ahead of time, we had signed up for our local Turkey Trot, which offered a 5k race or a 5-miler, of course we picked the 5-miler. *smiles* The weather was mid-40’s and a misty drizzle, but in my opinion, perfect for a run. There were 9,000 participants in this year’s Turkey Trot! B stuck it out and ran with my the whole way, not to mention we both loved the race course.
We were home by 11AM, got cleaned up and then headed over to the neighbors for some snacks and beverages before everyone had to get to their various family dinners. It was so fun spending a quick, impromptu few hours with the crew, we’ve gotten to know them well over the last year and a half and we’re grateful to have such awesome neighbors!
We spent our Thursday night dinner with B’s family, laughing, playing games and watching football! Friday we headed to one of my aunt’s for my family’s Thanksgiving, there was plenty of food, whiskey sours, buckeyes, stuffing, laughs and dogs to go around. But by dinner number three, we were definitely beyond stuffed, and thankful for our thanksgiving dinners to be over!
It was great catching up with everyone and being reminded how blessed we are with all the amazing people in our lives. This past weekend was a busy one, but the long break was definitely needed. Now it’s an official kickoff to the Christmas season!
