I was just thinking about my childhood thanksgivings and it hit me that I have totally become my mother. I cook now, I clean, I serve and I decorate. i remember my mom doing the same all day long. I also remember everyone eating then the parents would just sit at the table all night.i remember thinking how boring they were. and now we sit there drinking "cofee" and talking all night. and its so relaxing. Im officially excited about the holidays!
