Can you believe it!?

Can you believe that three weeks from today will be December 1st? 

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I'm super excited this year! This year my older brother and his kids will be joining us for a few days. And during those few days my mom, grandparents and little brother will be over too! It's not very often we are together. In fact the last time we were all together was three years ago. I look forward to family gatherings more and more. Probably because we've 'grown up' and the drama involved in so many of our past gatherings isn't there. My brothers and I have been through a lot together and I'm glad we are at a place where we can converse and enjoy time together.

The festivity preparations will soon begin; making menus, grocery lists, figuring out sleeping arrangements for 15, activities etc.

I'm also lobbying my little brother to come up a day early so we have a bit more time together- so far that's not working. But I shall keep trying.

Can't wait for the cousins to catch up- it has been too long! And if I've learned anything this past year- it is to not take anything for granted. Not a person. Not time. Not relationships. Not family or friends. Things change too fast.

Guess that's enough for now...time to get back on pinterest and find the perfect Pecan Pie recipe. I've tried different recipes each of the past few years and nothing has been FABULOUS! I'm determined this year! Wish me luck!
