Thanksgiving table for two

thanksgiving table for two // A Sunny Afternoon // Smitten StudioThis year Rupert and I are going to have a Thanksgiving meal, just the two of us, cooking in our kitchen together (it will be the first real meal cooked in the new space!) and reflecting on all we are thankful for before heading out to drop in on a few friends’ celebrations around town.

I make a pretty good mess in the kitchen and since I don’t cook all that often, I have to concentrate hard on getting all the timing right. One less thing to think about helps make sure we aren’t eating dry stuffing or cold turkey. ;)

How are you guys spending your Turkey Day?

From the weekend: Thanksgiving

11.25 thanksgiving tableHere is a little peek into our Thanksgiving table. I luckily recovered from the flu enough on Turkey Day to be able to break bread along with Rupert, my sister, her husband and their daughter. They flew in from Wyoming that day and stayed the weekend. It was so nice getting to spend time with my little niece (she’s two and a half) and she spent the rest of the weekend trying on every pair of my shoes, decorating the christmas tree, and basically wrapping us right around her finger.

I hope everyone else had a love filled Thanksgiving.
