I had the most wonderful Thanksgiving!
I hope yours was just as lovely. Together we all enjoyed looking through old family photo albums (I’ll share some of those images soon), fussing over cooking the turkey (especially interesting since two of us are vegetarians), and playing with my niece + nephew.
Waking up with snow was magical. The drive down the night previous was a bit tricky, but it seemed worth it to see such a beautiful blanket covering the ground, and knowing that the rest of the family was on their way. I had been needing a break from the city, so this Thanksgiving was very much welcomed.
My Marlborough Pie was a hit! Everyone seemed to like it, and a few people even asked for the recipe! I was happy that I could finally bring something special to Thanksgiving that hasn’t already been covered by someone else. My family is big, so it seems like everyone has claimed one dish that is theirs to bring each year, and maybe I’ve finally found mine?
So, I’m sorry I haven’t been writing as much lately. I’ll be back full-force on December 1st — after I finish my novel! NaNoWriMo is just wrapping up, and I’ve been incredibly far behind all month, so now I’m really scrambling to get caught up. I only have 12,000 more words ’til I’m finished, and only today and tomorrow to write it. So, forgive me for now, but on Thursday I’ll pick up here where I’ve left off.
