This will be the first time in 33 years that I am not hosting the Thanksgiving Dinner. Wednesday night I am going to go sleep over Jessica's. We plan on finishing up the remaining shopping in the City, with the hope that evening gives us a chance to walk around and see some of the Macy's balloons get ready for their parade. Even though this is her first, Jess has more than shared with all of us, that I need to make the stuffing and cranberry sauce. A presence of home will be there. This holds dearly in my heart.
Everyone loved the red velvet cupcakes that I made at Halloween. I'm going to make a small tray to bring along and fill half with pumpkin mousse , and a cream cheese filling to the other. I will probably decorate them to look like these.
Kids always love the Horn of Plenty, with the little candy toppings. I am not sure how many children will be at Jessica's feast. I am decorating the Horn of Plenty for me. Life is changing, yet I still have so much to be thankful for.
This Thanksgiving will be bitter-sweet. This new chapter in my life has been bringing lots of changes. I continuosly remind myself to count my blessings. Life is still an adventure, still a roller coaster. I am still riding and holding on tight.
