An abundance of thankfulness!

This Thanksgiving was extra special because it was spent with a new family since my mom got remarried in July. Before we ate we all went around the table expressing what we were thankful for. I think it’s safe to say that everybody was grateful for the blending of two families that came with such ease and so naturally. I think it had us ALL crying. It was a sweet day filled with sweet memories and new traditions. And it was our first Thanksgiving without my grandpa. So it was bitter sweet but he was very much remembered.

Enjoy the pictures! :)

The beautiful table set up!

And of course, no Thanksgiving is complete without the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade!
