Day of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!! I had a wonderful day with Susan and her family and am now back home with my babies.

Susan lives 2 hours north of me and the drive today was beautiful. This was the first time that I had actually been to Susan's house since we either come to my place or her house that is half way between us. I also was able to meet her Mom, brother and 12 year old nephew. Susan's house was decorated for Christmas and I love how many decorations she puts up. I took my camera, but forgot to take pictures. Susan's brother still lives in Minnesota so I had fun talking about the lovely winter weather that Minnesota experiences.

Dinner was delicious and her Mom makes the best homemade pies. One thing that I loved was we each got a fortune cookie at the end of the meal. After dinner we played a couple games of bingo and then Mexican train dominoes. There were even prizes for the winners of the bingo games.

As I was eating dinner tonight I looked across at Susan and our eyes met and she gave me the warmest smile and my heart just melted. We've been together for almost 4 months and I love that I still get butterflies when she smiles at me.

The whole day was perfect, but my favorite part was the few minutes we had after dinner where we were able to sneak away it was just the two of us. I hated having to drive home tonight without her and I look forward to the day when we are always together. Tonight we said how happy we were that I didn't sign a 12 month lease.

I hope each of you had a wonderful day filled with lots of good food and love.

I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving!

She must be even farther up north than my mom! We were up there yesterday, and it is always a dark drive home this time of year.
