Good Monday morning, my friends. This morning's coffee is an old favorite, Maxwell House International Instant Coffee. I have been drinking this since college, and although my favorite flavor has changed through the years, currently French Vanilla Cafe, I still love a steaming hot cup of this goodness every now and then.
Today I am thinking about Thanksgiving being next week. This time of year always seems to sneak up on me. Maybe because I am all about Halloween for so long beforehand, that once October 31 comes and goes, and I am still surrounded by orange, black, and bite-sized candy, I have but a couple weeks before Thanksgiving is upon us. At the same time, Christmas begins to appear, along with the urge to surround myself with all things jolly. Not that I am complaining, mind you. Just trying to appreciate the fact that we are entering the most wonderful season of the year, one I wait for all year long.
Adding to the festivities are the birthdays of two of my precious children, the one that made me a mother and the one that completed our family. Madison has her special day after Thanksgiving, while Flynn celebrates hers before. Steve and I took these beautiful ladies to dinner this past weekend, and we had the most wonderful time.
