My daughter keeps asking for a little sister. At first it was cute...then it started to evolve into a daily request, which became harder and harder to address. I can relate. I also wanted a sister growing up. But now, I can't deny the fact that after 4.5 years postpartum, I finally feeling like I have my body "back." I am quite certain that I don't want to go down the pregnancy path again.
Sometimes we all need a little reminder of what we're grateful for -- like a long weekend, good food and our families. We hope you enjoy some of these simple Thanksgiving recipes and craft ideas.
