I'm thankful for the love I feel within
and see without;
and in nature.
I got up early this morning before anyone else was up. It's my favorite time of day, when everything is still, dark and quiet and I'm rested and ready to create. I have so many ideas that I can't keep up with them all! This print will be added to my Etsy shop (see the link in the sidebar) along with a few others after the holiday. I hope you'll come back and take a look!
In the meantime, I'm going to go bake my family's favorite holiday breakfast:
Orange Current Buttermilk Scones (recipe below) and scrambled eggs
On the menu for later:
Turkey, Cornbread Stuffing, Green Beans, Potatoes, and Pumpkin Cheesecake for dessert.
We're going out in the snow
and then to see the new Harry Potter movie.
I'll post more pics as the day goes on!
