I was just the most thankful this Thanksgiving. It was a beautiful and food-filled day spent with Ken’s parents on a warm sunny day in Laguna Hills, followed by my niece Leah’s wedding where all my lovely siblings were in attendance. Will there be enough wine? That was my first concern when learning we’d all be there. My nieces and nephews are all in their 20’s and 30’s now so it was a legitimate concern. At one point during the reception I was bowled over from a pain in my side, apparently just looking at my sister Jenny on the dance floor can make me laugh harder than anything in the world. I limped over to the bar, took in a deep breath and ordered another Pinot. Meanwhile I learned that there’s an Iggy Azalea song I actually like!
One thing I didn’t have to learn (because I know from the bottom of my heart) is my family is truly special. We’re not complainers, we pitch in and get the job done, we’re humble, we body surf, we laugh, love and support each other and gave life to a lot of really cute kids and dogs. And we’re Homers (and Breglia’s, so we can cook too!)
