I Love Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving. Let me tell you why. 

This year we are traveling to family and although that can make for congestion, delays and the rest, I do love the journey. Thanksgiving is without the expectations of Christmas. Food, family and friendship, what's not to love! 

This year I am not doing the cooking. We are going to a beautiful inn. When we return home, I will make Jack his favorites for a quiet dinner of our own. Jack did grumble just a bit. He knows this inn dinner will be expensive and that he will leave hungry. There are no seconds. A Thanksgiving dinner with no seconds ............ my poor Jack! I will make him his own Thanksgiving once we are back home with all the sides he loves.

Throw in some Christmas shopping, a movie, activities with our grands and visiting with family and friends. Sounds like a perfect Thanksgiving to me. The weather seems to be cooperating as well. 

Jack and I wish all of you a very joyous Thanksgiving. 



  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Mere and Jack. Have a wonderful visit with family.

  2. This sounds wonderful Meredith, you have many blessings to count.
    Enjoy your time with friends and family, it is truly precious.
    Regarding the shortage of food for Jack, maybe you can come up with a way to make it up to him while you’re away, perhaps if staying in a hotel it could provide a few options!?!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 💕

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! (Even if it is a month late! Lol!)

    I am glad that you are with friends and family!

  4. Love Thanksgiving too! Happy you will enjoy a lovely visit!
    Almost wasn’t going to see my guy.... he was going to be away. However he said no way was he going to miss it. He wanted to be with us of course! :)

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Jack Meredith. Sounds like you have a wonderful celebration planned :)


  6. Meredith,
    You go get those grands, love on them, let them smother you with kisses and have a wonderful time.
    Maybe you could carry some extra jelly beans in your "pocketses" for Jack at the inn dinner! Although the grands might find them first!

    A very happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours. Hugs! Windy and the Gang

  7. I hope the weather will corporate too - but I know for sure you're gonna be cold! No worries, grandchild definitely warm your heart. I do love being with family too, but I can do without the shopping near Thanksgiving.

  8. Safe travels to you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving (even if there are no seconds.)

  9. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Meredith and Jack. Safe travels.


  10. Have fun with all the people you love, Mere. Happy Thanksgiving to you both. May your holiday be a special one.


  11. Wishes to you both for a happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the family time!

  12. Hi Meredith, :) Wishing you and Jack the happiest of Thanksgivings! You have such adorable little grands! Enjoy every minute together!

    Have a super time away. Something tells me that we'll be seeing you both soon. :) Many hugs,

    ❤️Katie xoxo
