Thanksgiving Thursday - Love and Heart

"Give thanks every day for the abundant blessings, both large and small, God bestows upon us moment by moment." ~Mama Hen
The trip Little Chick, my cousin and I took up north was beautiful in so many ways. I was able to show some of my favorite places to her and we got to strengthen a bond God had created so many years ago. When we left the Inn Little Chick helped out with the luggage. She said "Mommy, this was a really fun trip!" I had to agree. We had a really sunny day and headed to Essex for a wonderful walk, throwing rocks in the water and a delicious lunch. When we returned home my mom came to babysit and my cousin and I went out for a "ladies night out". This is something I have not done in so very long and we had a fabulous time filled with plenty of laughter. I feel so incredibly blessed to have such a beautiful loving cousin who I call soul sister.
Do you see the heart?

A delicious lunch at the Griswold.

Long awaited onion soup. Delicious
A dessert especially made for my cousin and I.
Special gifts for one another. Love and Heart.
