A Birthday, Turkey and Cookies

I just had quite an eventful week. As my mom said, “I’m thankful to have so many wonderful things in my life to be thankful for.”

We celebrated my birthday with a celebratory lunch and a hike through the woods and along the beach.

Then we celebrated Thanksgiving with family, catching up, telling stories, laughing, cooking and eating.

Then we enjoyed my family’s annual Cookie Day, a full day of marathon cookie making. I think we made over 20 varieties this year!

Today, after hosting an early breakfast for the family before they had to hit the road, I took a nap, laid on the couch to finish my book. I can’t remember the last time I had such a lazy day. Now I’m refreshed and ready for a new week filled with creativity.

  • Hello Terri,

    Oh your baking day sounds like a lot of fun, You should make a little family recipe book for everyone. You could do the illustrations.
    Happy days.
