18 Dec The Magic Beyond
I believe Thanksgiving is one of the most beautiful, heartwarming occasions of the year.
It’s a warm, celebratory way to welcome gratitude.
First and foremost, I value the morning spent with my family — bundled in cozy pajamas and fuzzy slippers. Peeling, boiling, baking and waiting — reveling in simple moments that turn into special memories.
Spending time with great friends is also a wonderful highlight. The conversations are casual. The connections are real.
And the meal! It’s hearty, delicious and always filling! Turkey and twice-baked potatoes. Sweet yams and cornbread stuffing. Pumpkin spiced bread and cinnamon apple sauce.
And then . . . the colors! A gorgeous table setting of rich chocolates accented by a fall centerpiece — branches of pomegranates & berries, plump red dahlias, nestled among yellow and orange ranunculus — dazzling when combined.
Life is full of gifts, big and small.
May you and yours continue to discover and savor life’s gifts — now, and well beyond this magical holiday season.
Keep on believing The Magic Beyond Thanksgiving!
