we spent the holiday at home. just the four of us. bryan and i cooked all day long. everything from scratch. from start to finish. spending the morning at the beach put us a little behind schedule.
i had grand plans for dinner. one by one talking about what we are thankful for. candles and holding hands and taking a moment to pause for thanks before eating. but we don't have any candles in the house and i couldn't get finn to even sit in her seat like a normal human being much less pose for a kind and gentle photo.
it was less of an event and more like a weeknight dinner that took too long to make.
tonight, we finished the leftovers. smiled and gave thanks and laughed and talked. it felt more like thanksgiving than thanksgiving itself. i didn't take any photos of dinner tonight.
