My first American Thanksgiving
So, my first Thanksgiving has passed and it didn’t disappoint. I went to Texas and ate enough food to feed an entire nation!!!
I woke with sleepy eyes greeting me and a big birthday hug as it was also my birthday. I walked into the kitchen and it was already hustling at 10am, big love and laughter filled the room as the sweet potato casserole, cranberry salad, vegetables and the best southern pecan pie around was prepared.
American football played in the background on the flat screen TV — as I understand it, big games were played that day. A big turkey bird was deep fried out on the drive in the cold frosty air – southern style — while I sat on the porch gazing at Friesian horses walking majestically across the pasture.
I felt very blessed to have experienced such a beautiful celebration in the US, and I sure did give thanks to a bountiful Harvest :)
I packed light; it was only a 3 day stay so I stuck to basics – a pair of jeans, 3 tops one of which is WTF striped burnout tee. Accessories included the Chevron Tall Sock Boot which were perfect to snuggle up in and two rings that added a little bit of sliver to my look - Long Metal Ring and the Arabian Sand Ring.
I hope everyone had an extra special day too!
