Giving thanks.

Ron and i are in Terre Haute, In. for thanksgiving! you might be asking yourself, why Terre Haute, or What is Terre Haute?!

My parents both grew up in T. H. and most of my family is here. My parents, after 20 years in Edwardsville, decided to move home this year!

I'm so excited for the Thanksgiving feast!

I am thankful for Quorn Fake turkey roast, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, the many glasses of red wine shared with my aunt Paula and who would not GIVE THANKS for Pumpkin Pie? This year i am also thankful for the 8 person hot tub on my parents new back deck!

One last thing that i am thankful for above the rest, Ron and a little over 4 1/2 years together!

Love, Claire

OK. Ron here. My turn.

I am thankful that we finally got to Terre Haute. I am thankful that at least one of the bottles of wine we have is drinkable. I am thankful that , even if I don't see or talk to them enough, my family is healthy and doing well this season. I am also thankful that I have Claire's family to make me feel welcome while I am away from my own.

And, of course, I am extremely thankful that I have Claire, and look forward to continue splitting this blog and everything else with her for years to come.


Happy Thanksgiving!

Rug or Art?

i was looking through the rugs online at Ikea, and getting Ron's opinions of some of them.
He kept saying, "That looks like art from (insert an artist here)!"
