I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, filled with lots of yummy food! And if you don't celebrate I hope you had a great Thursday!
As most of you guys know, although I've lived in Ireland since I was seven years old I am originally American and my family lived in the US for some time which is why we still celebrate. In all honesty, Thanksgiving has always been one of my favourite holidays! I love spending time with family, cooking and preparing great food and giving thanks for all that we have. Even when life seems tough and things aren't going the way we'd planned, there is always something to be thankful for!
I know, it's a Christmas candle but we couldn't resist the cookie flavour! The one next to it is a pecan scent from TK Maxx. My mom's place-mats and napkins are from Williams Sonoma (last year).
My crazy family :)
This year we celebrated at my mom's house (like always), which was really not a surprise since we're staying there temporarily until we get the keys to our new house next week! Yay! My mom made the turkey and green beans, my sister Emma made the stuffing, baked corn and pumpkin roll for dessert (check out the recipe on her blog!)* and I baked vegan cornbread which surprisingly turned out to be a success! I got the recipe here.
*I just checked out my sister's blog and burst out laughing when I discovered that almost all our photos are the same, hahaha! Needless to say we're sharing pictures ;) Having said that there were a lot to choose from, obviously we have the same taste - lol!
