This past weekend the family and I went back home to Medford Oregon. I love, love, love going back home during this time of year. Living in Southern California for so long, you tend to forget what the four seasons can actually look like and that leaves do change color!
I mean isn’t that breathtakingly gorg? Oh my god. I could stare at this all day long. So, we made the trip back up north in order for all of us to spend time together and have an early Thanksgiving. The actual week of Thanksgiving will have our family all over the place, so we took advantage of this time that we could spend together.
Seeing my sister and her family always means so much to me. Such a bummer we couldn’t be with my beautiful grand niece, Baby Samantha. This adorable picture will have to do for now until I can see her!!!
So, we had an early Chinese food Thanksgiving. We have been known to have Chinese for the holidays, so we did it this time, too, and we ordered everything. You name it, we had it. Except for turkey. Go figure!
It was bittersweet to be home with everybody, my dad is 93 and I feel as if he’s ready to go and wanting to say his goodbyes. So it really was about being there, and letting go and saying goodbye and accepting the inevitable.
I cherish my family and all of our memories and am so grateful to have spent this time with my family to kick off the upcoming holidays.
