It's #TGIFC134...and it's a Gratitude Challenge!
Click the image above to go to the TGIF Challenges blog for all the details. You'll be able to see what the TGIF designers have shared to inspire you...and you'll be able to see what other challengers have created, too! But first...here's my Gratitude Challenge project!
Yes...it's a spoon...etched with one of my favorite all time words...thankful. I think there are so many things to be grateful for year round...but I love Thanksgiving...a time to set other things aside and focus on gratitude, on blessings and on being thankful.
For many years I cooked the Thanksgiving meal. I'd take off from work and spend three whole days cooking everything from scratch...all the way down to homemade bread and chicken stock for the stuffing! Yep...kinda crazy...and I LOVED it...but at a certain point it became a bit overwhelming. So...we started eating at a restaurant...which was good...but there's nothing like a home cooked Thanksgiving meal. This year, I'm thankful that we'll be cooking at home with family again. And I'm not cooking...which I'm also thankful for. When we're the holiday guests I like to share something with the host. I was out and about and found this spoon...and I knew it would be the perfect Thanksgiving hostess gift. It already says exactly what I know I'll be feeling about sharing the day. So I picked it up...and added a simple tag. And it's simple and perfect!
