We had a lovely Thanksgiving here at my house.
Great food. Good company. Lots of stories and laughter. I love having my family all around for this big celebration of gratitude and thanksgiving.
It was a special treat to have Erin and her longtime boyfriend, Keith, join us for nearly a whole week!
Erin and I had a chance to do some shopping (a rare treat for a gal working at Rite Aid for her "gap year" . . . between getting her Masters and starting work on her PhD). We had fun cooking together and talking about books and just hanging out. Erin enjoyed her Jenny-time (she so misses having a dog in her everyday life.)
It's hard to have your kids grow up and live far away from you. There's just . . . an empty place. But. It's wonderful to see them grow and become themselves and spread their wings . . . starring in their own show.
And, well. . . some things never change!
Thanks for the wonderful visit, Erin! It was a special treat for all of us.
