I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

Thanksgiving | 2012

I’m a little late in my postings. With college graduation only a few steps away, my workload has been crushing down on me and therefore leaves me with less time to focus on my photos. With that said, I love sharing photos of my family and giving people a little glimpse of our life. Thanksgiving this year was typical to most Thanksgivings; Paul and I go to Ma and Dad’s and watch them during the final steps of the dinner preparation. There is usually a point where it gets pretty stressful – when Ma is trying out a new gravy recipe because last year’s didn’t work out so well. I am quite happy to say that this year’s was a success! Everything turned out beautiful and tasted amazing!

My sister and her family come over after they are at her in-laws’ dinner and enjoys pies with us. This year Ma made “homemade” pies (pie filling and frozen crust :)). Another success!

In a nutshell, this is what we do. I love our little holiday traditions, however tiny they may be, and love spending time with my wonderful family.
