Thanksgiving in Photos



We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with a lot of blue skies, sunshine and warm temperatures. My daughter Melisssa flew in from Michigan and having at least one daughter here made my weekend. We will see Megan and Adam at Christmas, but still missed them a lot. However, newly married couples need to spread their time between families and we understand that. Time was spent at the beach, the pool and at a lot of fun restaurants. Tropical drinks were enjoyed and we shopped at St. Armands Circle one night. We watched MSU in both football and basketball and unfortunately watched the Lions lose on Thanksgiving Day. We even got in a round of golf in on Sunday before Melisssa flew back to Michigan. It was hard for her to leave and head back to snowy weather, but we see her again in just a few weeks. It will be a busy December for everyone, but we are all looking forward to spending Christmas together back in our home state.








And, as a bonus to the weekend, yesterday was our 36th anniversary. We had a lovely dinner out with wine, a lemon drop martini (for me) and a wonderful Italian meal, followed by Creme Brulee for dessert. Here's to many more in this new life we have built here in Florida.


Happy Tuesday!

  5. Sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving. Especially those warm temps. Have a great week, Vicki!

  6. Happy anniversary!! Your Thanksgiving looks like it was great and your food looks delicious! I am switching to buffet serving from now on, when we have more than four people. Passing all those heavy and hot dishes is not fun. I love you set-up! Bundle up for that trip to Michigan!
