The Best Thanksgiving Ever

I've been getting a lot of comments about this gorgeous fellow and how my creative skills have improved over the past few years. Well, I could claim all the credit but other people read this blog, and they, and I, would know the true story. For that centerpiece, as I really should have stated earlier, and those who have known me for any length of time must have guessed, has nothing at all to do with me and everything to do with The Awesome Designer. That's why she is awesome, isn't it?
Actually, that's why she's a designer, the reason she is awesome is that she and her supremely patient husband, the loyal blog reader, welcome design-challenged and family-deprived neighbors, including The Guy and moi, into their beautifully decorated cottage and they feed and entertain them, not for one but two days. Making it more impressive, are all the family members, their friends, and friends of their friends, seemingly myriads of them, who move into their home for days at the holidays. I think if I had so many people staying at my house I'd be hiding out in the basement for much of the time.
On the other hand, if I didn't live right across the road I might ask to stay there too. In addition to her other skills, she cooks wonderfully and the wine flows as if the spirit of Sucellus has taken over the house. If she wasn't such a nice person I might have to hate her for being so brilliant. As it is, I just sit back, eat, drink and admire.
