Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? Do you have some special family traditions?
Family matters are frequently sticky and filled with all kinds of "baggage". I recently heard from a blogger that her two kids aren't very close and she's done trying to get them "together". My mom tried for years to coordinate events where my brother and I could be together. We don't really have much in common and never enjoyed those get-togethers so she finally gave up. My heart goes out to you out there who have family issues that are painful, especially at this time of year.
I think traditions are also so interesting. Having grown children with grandkids now it's great to see that they are embracing some of the traditions we established. One of my favorites is Thanksgiving. Since we've owned a vacation home in Sunriver the past 15 years, we have always traveled the 500 miles to spend the week together under one roof in a beautiful area. Rachel has been bringing her family up here as well. Ryan knows his way around our house in Sunriver so well, it's great.
I'm not even going to talk about the food, which my family insists always is the same year to year!! Drives me nuts!!
I'm anxious to hear about your holiday traditions...willing to share? I mean food, events, location, etc etc.
Love to you all,
