So thankful

Although I did not have time to polish the silver this year and used the everyday stainless instead, I did make sure I took the time to make the butter molds (because Dean loves them so)...
and I did get the linens ironed...

and placecards made and the table set. My grandpa used to bring us foil-wrapped chocolate turkeys from Fannie Mays (a Chicago institution) so I make sure to find some kind of chocolate turkey for Dean every year (not as easy to do as it should be). Dean even read the blessing this year.

And so all-in it was a successful Thanksgiving. I've got the meal down to a science -- easy with the combination of 20+ years of experience and a husband who really loves exactly the same dishes every year. And I spent more time than usual thinking thoughts of thankfulness. Better that way.

Your settings and thoughtful touches look as beautiful and lovely as the gratitude observations you have been sharing.
I hope the success of your Thanksgiving continues through this year and the next.
