happy thanksgiving

What a wonderful day!

Pierce and I have spent all week preparing to host Thanksgiving in our home for the very first time, and I have to say it went off without a hitch (except for when I accidentally mixed up my salt and sugar containers when making the batter for my mini peach cobblers...at least I discovered my error before I served them...yuck!). 

We ate lots of gorgeous food and played Scattergories (Pierce won) and we laughed a whole bunch. 

I love my family. I love that I belong to the Nunnerys now, too. And they were so sweet, so complimentary. When they left, Pierce and I looked at each other and high-fived. It was worth all the work to have everyone over and to serve them as much as we could here in our home together.

We have more to be thankful for than I can even say.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hosted Thanksgiving last year for the first time in our house (when we were still renters.) Your table settings are so cute!

Congrats on hosting at your place! It's a huge job for sure and something I dfeinitely haven't tackled yet. Looks like you did amazing though and the food looks absolutely delish! I just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better... hope you don't mind if I follow along!

I have "hosted" before...but never done the cooking. Basically we just met at our house last year while I still did pretty much no cooking. One day I'll do the real thing! Good job! Oh, and I love the scrabble decorations!
