Throwback Thrusday, Thanksgiving 2010

November 28, 2013

As I’ve mentioned several times, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’ve talk about traditions HERE and food HERE and HERE. There a few more buried here somewhere I’m sure. I love good food and spending time with family. My Dad and I are both recovering from nasty colds and I’ve been running non-stop for weeks, so we opted to have a low key holiday this year- a Dad and Daughter day. We had lots of invites from other family and friends, but we decided he would make a turkey and some sides and I’d make a pie (caramel apple pecan, see link above) and we’d call it a day.

I’m thankful for so many things this year… and I could make you all a list, but it is pretty similar to the lists of a lot of other people out there…. my family, my friends, a good job, health and happiness…. in just a lot more detail than that! I got up and went for a walk along the lake this morning… the first time I’ve been able to go in a few weeks because of being sick, and as I walked I realized this will be the first Thanksgiving in almost 14 years that I will not be with my Nana. Consistently, every Thanksgiving since 1999 she has been a staple in my holiday. Even before that we were often together every other year or so. It is a little odd to realize she won’t be able to yell at me about how I messed up the cranberry relish or how she just wants a  little slice of pie or how great my hair looks. So, for today’s throwback… it is to 2010. This was the last year where she was really able to move around by herself. I’m blocking out how bad 2012 was… my Dad’s house is not wheelchair friendly…. and I am going to remember 2010 as the last happy Thanksgiving holiday I had with her and it was a good one.
