As the holidays approach...

Those who know me, know that I absolutely love the holidays...  I love Thanksgiving and I love Christmas...  For me there is this HAPPY feeling in the atmosphere.  I get the most joy out of being able to visit my family out of town.  This year I plan on spending Thanksgiving in NY with my dad and step-mother.  I especially like it there because my step-mother cooks so much food.  It is peaceful to be away from home and my daughters love to go shopping on black Friday in SoHo...  They really think they are New Yorkers by way of Virginia... LOL 

 I know I talk a lot about relationships with the opposite sex but I also think relationships with my family and friends are just as important.  Although there can be some messed up family members there is nothing like gathering during the holidays and laughing about things from the past and filling our stomachs with some good food.  I hopefully think that one day I will have a home big enough to invite my family to and cook for them.  I never thought I would say this but I LOVE to cook and would be happy to share my skills with my family.

This year for Christmas I am thinking that I am going to try to and change my relationship with my mom.  I think with effort I could possibly do this.  We will see. 

How do you spend your holiday time?

Peace and Blessings

  1. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I spend it in VA w/ my family. The tradition over the past few year has been to have dinner over my cousin's house with both her mother (my aunt) and her father's family. We have a great time and everyone looks forward to Aunt Laverne's Sweet Potato casserole and my homemade Mac n cheese. There's never any left! Fri I may do a little shopping but the rest of the weekend I'm usually celebrating my bday with my hometown friends and family.
