One of a Thousand Thankful Posts

Thanksgiving is special to me.  Yeah, I get time off work and get to hang with family and eat way more yummilicious food than I should...but that's not what leaps to mind each year at this time.  Nope.  I think about my husband.  (I'll pause while y'all get your awwwwwwwwwwws out of the way)

I met him just before Thanksgiving, you see.  He asked me out the day before and we went on our first date the day after.  

This year marks 19 years since that first Thanksgiving.  

We were engaged before the next one and married by the third.  Pregnant w/our oldest at the 4th and new parents at the fifth. 

So this time of year is special.  I have tons of other blessings to be thankful for, but to keep this short and sweet, 
I'm going to refer you to an oldie but a goodie:

One of these days I'll do a follow up:  The First Date

Very nice that Thanksgiving has such great connotations, and historic significance in your own family. Touchingly told--a great story. Hope Thanksgiving remains special for you for many years to come.

I remember that post from September :-) Hope your Turkey Day was yummilicious (I had to copy your spelling on that one).
