Typically we’d have our Thanksgiving dinner outside in the front yard. We’d set up tables and chairs and decorate with flower arrangements and a beautiful tropical centerpiece. This is still the plan, but with all this rain, our grass is mud. Our driveway is a slip and slide for our feet and cars. The mud is thick and sticks to the bottom of your slippers and it feels like you have an extra pair of shoes on. The dogs are a disaster but somehow, the cats are still clean. Our white truck is brown and caked with mud from pounding through the pot holes and spinning out in the driveway. So – as for Thanksgiving, we are trying to find a place to set up our table. We’re expecting about 20 people. Our family of four is opening our house to 16 extra people. It should be crowded and fun. Luckily, I will have help preparing, prepping, cooking, eating, and cleaning. On this day, we give thanks. We are thankful. Thankful for life, thankful for each soul we meet, and thankful for the love we are surrounded by each day. We are so blessed and grateful to share this earth. In between all the Thanksgiving festivities, Beach Girl Jewels will still be getting some work done and preparing for the trunk show in Hanalei on Black Friday. Hope to see you there!
