Since we don’t live near family, Hubby and I started our own Thanksgiving Dinner tradition by making annual reservations = I’m thankful I don’t have to cook + clean up for just the two of us. And the bonus is that we get to enjoy a huge variety of traditional Thanksgiving food that I would not have the energy or space for. Sigh, reservations were at 1:00 and now we’re home with full tummies + a nice clean house.
A quick snap of us after our dinner.

The meat carving station
A portion of the salad bar…
And a birds eye view of all the sweets! I had a sampling of so many of these yummy treats. The pumpkin and pecan pies were so good, amongst a host of other goodies…
My handsome hubby enjoying his goodies.
I felt beyond blessed to be sitting across the table from him this beautiful Thanksgiving day.
Right in the middle of my picture taking I got caught. I love it when that happens – he made me smile.
He did scold me – I may or may not have chuckled.
“stop taking my picture”
I wonder what this sign means.
But this last look more than melts my heart. And I wish I could convince him that I love him more.
One thing he would never do is taunt me when it comes to cherries. This was about 5 min. after I got in trouble.
A gift for me…I’m thankful he made this Thanksgiving day so special. What great conversation we had around our little table.
He truly has a magical way of making my little light shine.
While enjoying the atmosphere, I slipped out to the patio…It was just a bit too chilly for us to comfortably dine but so pretty none the less.
The San Diego Sky line from the patio. We crossed that bridge to get to the island.
We passed by the Hotel Del
What a pretty hotel. We enjoyed Thanksgiving there last year.
Such beautiful scenery all along the way. “Honey, we’re in CA” was repeated again in the car. It’s impossible to count the times we’ve said that since we moved here just over a year ago.
Coronado Island Yacht Club
And one last shot. I find such beauty in this bridge each time we pass by.
A heart of Thanksgiving is one I want to carry with me all the days of my life. And my greatest desire is to be the best helpmate I can be for my husband. While I feel so blessed to have the gift of life, I feel the greater blessing spending the days of my life with him.
