Gratitude lifts our eyes off the things we lack so we might see the blessings we possess. – Max Lucado
Thanksgiving was celebrated differently this year in a lot of households. Our families are not here in the US, so we usually go to our friend’s house to celebrate this holiday. However, the annual Thanksgiving Party at her house was canceled due to the pandemic. So, we decided to prepare a nice dinner for Just the Two of Us.
My hubby pan-fried a big slab of sirloin steak and topped it with a dollop of garlic butter. He also made some creamy corn soup and steamed asparagus for sides. I was in charge of dessert. But, since I’m not really an expert when it comes to baking… I just ordered a delicious pecan pie!
We each had a glass of cabernet sauvignon as we enjoyed our meal and talked about life, family, and our hopes for the future. After dinner, we wanted to document our lovely evening, so he set-up his camera, and we had so much fun doing this mini photo shoot.
All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go!!!
But that’s OK. My hubby and I decided to wear something nice. After all, it’s Thanksgiving Day. Though we’re not with our friends and families, we are still so thankful for the blessings in our life.
