In the past, no matter where I was, I always made a ceremonious dinner of gratitude. Even the time the German butcher and I had a BIG misunderstanding between pounds-versus-kilos and he presented me with a bird I could not physically carry home. We had to break bones and tie it down to get it in tie oven, no joke.
I have been lucky enough to share my country's custom with many friends over the years, always with lots of laughter and love around our table.
But this year, it's going to be with my family. I can barely stand it.
One of the things I'm grateful for is the amazing autumn we've had since moving home. Up until last weekend, it was sunny skies and unseasonably warm weather. It really felt like Minnesota was welcoming me back and putting on her very best, just for me. So here are some random shots from my iPhone to share with you. A few of the moments where I gasped from the beauty of it all and how lucky I am to be part of this one crazy life, wherever I happen to be.
Minnesota is so pretty this shit should be illegal!
My best wishes to you and your families this Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for this year? xxx tj
