Welcome to one of the best months around! I adore the fall season and if that sounds basic, I don’t even care! Halloween is officially over and we can roll right in to one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving!
I love it all, the family, the food, the continuance of fall color schemes across tables with beautiful dish ware. And y’all, I love me some gorgeous dishes! Bring it all on, I’m ready!
I don’t think anyone would disagree that dessert is always the best part of the meal and at my mom’s house, it’s truly pie-palooza! I’m already dreaming which slices I’ll be serving up this time around!
There’s usually apple, a mock-mince meat, pumpkin, pecan, and several others. I’m not kidding y’all. One time we had nine pies. Nine!
I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to baking! Thanksgiving is with my folks this year. If I know my mom, I know she’s already prepping the menu and planning the cooking breakdown so it’s not an overwhelming day of non-stop chopping, baking, and whipping. We’ll get to work when we get there!
Speaking of prepping, I’ve been prepping my closet for a the switch over now that we’re really into the fall season in Oklahoma. Sure, we’ve had a few cool fronts come through but now it’s a consistent under 80 degrees each day. That’s cool here, folks. I did a little shopping and starting messing around with old pieces and new, finding ways to spice up pieces I wear regularly.
Between dreams of delicious pies and new fall outfits, I think I’ve got a lot to look forward to this month!
What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving?
