Hi everyone! Just wanted to pop in to let you all know I am packing up and heading home for Thanksgiving. I am so Excited!… For those of you who do not know, home for me is in New Orleans. Born and raised, I love that place!
I am so looking forward to this visit although it will be a bitter sweet one. You see, I miss my family and will love seeing them but am sad all at the same time. My dad passed away just this past February and I have been silently dealing with my loss since I am away and not around my family. I’m not sure how I will respond seeing them but I hope it is a memorable visit.
Things are just not the same and I know DAD will be missing but I know he will be there in spirit. We have lots of kids in our family so I am sure they will lift our spirits and we will have a great time reminiscing.
My dad was a vibrant man, he enjoyed his music, entertaining and being the focus of attention. He loved entertaining and having his family around and wouldn’t have it any other way. The tradition must go on and will try our best to keep it going.
So, if you don’t see me around for awhile, just know that I am at home with the folks I love and we are having a lovely time.
So until I return, I wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
