Happy Thanksgiving & New Blog Look! :)

(Yes, I'm getting extremely excited for Christmas.
Can you tell? ;))

Hello again, all you dear and wonderful peoples! We just got back from our great western jaunt yesterday and I'm spilling over with all the longing and glory and satisfaction of pine trees and mountain heights and wide spaces. I'm so glad we live on the edge of the west.

We were blessed with great traveling mercies, along with lots of delightful sights and adventures and lovely time with friends and family. I'm so thankful we were able to go; and I took about 2800 (and some few odd) pictures, so I hope to share some with all of you when I can.

And what do you think of my new blog design? I did it at one of our hotel stops and I'm still rubbing my hands about it.

Also, I have a big party idea coming up before too long, which I'm bubbling to share with all of you. I still have some details to iron out, so I haven't quite nailed down the date, but it's coming soon. VERY soon. (And it's super exciting, involving sparkles and swirling blue and sterling character qualities and different book and film comparisons. ;))

Now I'm off to plan some pies and finish consulting on our menu for tomorrow. :)

A Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Tell me! What are you planning for Thanksgiving? And what do you think of the new blog design and a party?

      THANK YOU! I just love it when you comment, my friend. ;) (I didn't know you had a blogger account?) And also, my brother showed me a movie last night that I hugely enjoyed and which should make you smile. Note coming soon.... :D

  8. Such a lovely photo--those horses are so cute! And SNOW! REAL SNOW! (We live in the Deep South, so pardon my excitement ;) )

    1. jessica,
      Aren't the pictures beautiful? Altogether it feels fairly New England-ish to me. Except maybe the horses.... they could be out west. ;) Yes, we're kind of in the middle. We usually get a few good snowfalls in the winter, but it doesn't settle down and camp out for months at a time.

      And I'm SO happy you're excited -- thank you for the encouragement!

    2. Indeed, yes! I'm originally from New England, so that's probably why I love I so much :)

  9. Happy Thanksgiving! I love the new blog design. It's perfect for Christmas. I can't believe Christmas is so close. I wish time would stop, so I could finish being stressed with school and just relax and have fun during the Christmas season.

    A party! I'm always open for a party! :-)

    1. Ekaterina,
      Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I'm so glad you think it's perfect.

      I know, it can be so distracting when you feel like you're mentally in three (or four or five) different places at once. I'm actually planning to sit down soon and write up a bit of a "daily" list to help prioritize some things myself. I hope you're able to relax and enjoy Christmas!

      And yay -- I'm so hoping you can join in! :)

      Thank you -- it was quite lovely and I hope you had a beautiful one as well!

      And thank you!! I'm SO glad. Yes, the horses. Very much. (Incidentally, I also have a couple winter cowboy pictures I hope to use sometime, too -- so one of these days! Dearly looking forward to it at any rate. ;D)

  11. Heidi, the new look is gorgeous; I absolutely love it! I want to drink up a cup of hot cocoa just looking at it. ;) I hope that you and your family had a great and happy Turkey Day! I hope to see some of the pictures you took! :)
