happy thanksgiving

I wanted a fancy spread for my Thanksgiving post.  Perhaps a round up of my previous posts just like what you see in other blogs...

But oh well, I've been busy in the kitchen, and my kids are all here now, so all I want to do is spend every minute I can to be with them.

But then again, Thanksgiving is not all about a fancy spread, it's all about being grateful for all the blessings...

and so I am grateful for the wonderful gifts of family and friends... and to all of you who visit my site regularly I'd like to extend my heartfelt appreciation.

I am grateful for simple joys like the scent of freshly baked almond mini tarts wafting from the kitchen... while enjoying the warmth of being with my family.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. May you find joy and happiness this holiday season...
