Thanksgiving

Johnny and I's first time hosting Thanksgiving went off very well. The turkey was moist, the side dishes delish, and we had great company. I've got to say, Johnny and I make a good team. Go us! Although I missed being with the rest of the family this holiday, I still had a fun time laughing, stuffing my face,watching my family play and take video games so seriously, and then stuffing my face again with apple pie.

My mom suprised me a touching and meaningful gift. She passed down her Grandmother's wedding ring to me and I'm still in bliss and so happy. The ring belonged to my Great Grandmother, Lenore. I also have a few of her other jewerly pieces, like this ring. I know that this ring will never leave my finger. A while ago, one of the smaller diamonds fell out so they'll need to be replaced but I love the antique design. I mean after all, the ring is almost 80 years old!
