Give Thanks and Share Your Link

This year, more than ever, I am thankful for my family, husband and friends and friendships. I’m attempting to be thankful for the 24 years I had to spend with my Daddy since some people don’t even get that long with their Dad’s. But I can’t help to think that I should have been blessed with about 24 more years with him.

On a lighter note, I am also thankful for my blackberry (Chris isn’t), gas being cheaper, diet mountain dew, target, wool socks & fake ugg boots, rice krispie treats, hooded sweatshirts, this blog, and the blogs Google reader delivers to be everyday.

I’ll be taking time out this weekend to spend with family, to do a little black Friday shopping, and (of course) to catch up on my favorite blogs. Speaking of blogs, I need some new material to read! So, while you’re home over Thanksgiving eating leftover turkey and getting an early start on Christmas shopping and decorating, drop me a comment with the link to your blog! I would love to stop by!

I think that it’s appropriate to end my last post before thanksgiving with a picture of a pretty table, just waiting for guests to arrive.

Thanks, Laura Ann for sending this picture from Jennifer Skog. I’m sure your tables at your reception will be just as beautiful as this one!

that's so funny about your blackberry. E isn't always a fan of my iPhone either... especially when I zone out on it when he's trying to talk to me. :) Happy Holidays!

It's sad to see your wedding blog comes to an end. I've been following your blog for a while and had been completely inspired by you. Your wedding was beautiful. All the best.

Hi Jessica! I've been reading your blog for almost a year now and it's been a great source of inspiration. Based on the pictures, it looks like everything turned out great! I'm planning for my own October 11 wedding, and I started a blog last month to document the process. It's still just a baby and there's not much on there yet, but stop by and check it out! www.masonjarbride.blogspot.com. Happy Thanksgiving!
