Thanks!

Change, uncertainty, mystery...
Thanksgiving was my mother's holiday. (well, Easter too) For 25 years the family has gathered at her home for the thankful feast.
We are heading to Long Beach tomorrow morning.
A new start for the holiday season.
Little nephews adoring their grown-up cousins.
Laughter, nostalgia, chaos, ocean breezes, food, goodness, gratefulness.
Embrace.
Enjoy.

I am so excited that you all are coming down this year. I missed so many of the last Thanksgiving's at Mom's house. It will be nice to start some new traditions and play some flag football in the nice CA weather - sans snow. I think the boys are coming out of their skins to see you tomorrow. Dylan says " I love Aunt De too much".
