Today is my last day of work until next Monday, so I wanted to wish you all a VERY Happy Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for this year including all the wonderful people in my life (which means you, too), my health, a roof over my head and clothes on my back just to name a few. God bless you all!
We are headed to my grandparents' tomorrow and this is what I'm bringing. This website is A-MAZING! I've used several of their recipes and they're always a big hit and taste SO yummy!
