’tis the season for gratitude

    We have that same carving set! My husband loves it.
    Iโ€™m grateful that I have more time with my husband, as he was diagnosed with gioblastoma in August. With COVID, fires and now this, weโ€™re stretched. I love my husband, my home and our wonderful friends.

    Beautiful table.

  3. Edith (Edie) Brown says:

    Thank you once again for reminding us of the importance of thankfulness and gratitude especially during these unsettling times. It certainly is easy to forget what is truly important. I love the thanksgiving holiday for that yearly reminder.
    Thanks Beth for always stepping up to inspire us.
    Glad to hear that you are well!

    Your Thanksgiving table looks lovely. I agree wholeheartedly that we need to be thankful everyday. Having celebrated my 67th birthday yesterday, I am aware that I must be grateful for each and every day that I am given. And really, shouldn’t we all, no matter what age we are? I am also grateful for you, Beth, and the lovely blog you have created. Thank you.

  5. Jan says:

    What a really wonderful message! Thank you. I am going to try to stop any negative thoughts that come my way. It is time to count our blessings. Love your blog!! Your outfit today is so cute, you look darling and love the fall tablescape.

    Many blessings to you, Jan

    Hi Beth,

    Lovely post today. I am grateful for my family and friends, good health and my Princey (who I also look forward to walking every day). We were able to celebrate my mother’s 97th birthday last week. Blessed to still have her in my life and grateful for all she has done for me, my sibling and our families.

  7. Robin says:

    I’m grateful for my husband and son and that we enjoy one another’s company. Which is good as we’ve been together in the same house every single day non-stop since mid-March. ๐Ÿ˜€
    And I’m grateful it’s been nice outside this week so I can sit outside and work.
    I’ll soon be grateful that we can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my best friend from second grade and her family for the tenth year in a row (I think, we lost count somewhere along the way). We’ve been friends for 50 years. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Joy says:

    Love this all!
    Thank you for focusing on November and Thanksgiving.
    Love the outfit- Black and Tan – trying to keep up with Oscar- It works!

  9. Laurel says:

    Beth, you could not have timed this better. A beautiful post. I am also thankful for your positivity, your strength and your post. Thank you.

  10. Lisa says:

    Iโ€™m thankful my sister and other family members survived COVID. Very sad that my thirty-six year old cousin passed from COVID. Thankful for my husband, son and my strong female friends. Always thankful for the beauty of this earth.

  11. Eve says:

    I’ll use my vintage turkey platter which my husband loves and that awful cranberry jelly he expects with his turkey. I am grateful for all we have and what I can still do. I think the little pie pan pumpkins are just wonderful & just the size for a small pie with left over filling for hand pies after Thanksgiving. Hand pies, Kelly?

    I like the outfit and although I don’t wear short skirts, I’m still happy to know that those of a certain age can still look wonderful in them. Your decorations are lovely and such fun to look at.

  12. Andrea says:

    Love that coat! In Canada, we have already celebrated Thanksgiving. Even though it was just the two of us and my boys and I, have already decided against Christmas, I still do the whole dinner. Left overs are wonderful and bring fond memories every time we enjoy them. I have lung issues, so my family has decided to give me the gift of life rather than their company ๐Ÿ’. For their love, I am grateful, for my home, food, grandchildren, I am grateful. For my life I am grateful.

    We should all be grateful for the peace both of our countries are so fortunate to enjoy as we celebrate- silver lining๐ŸŽ

  13. Carolyn says:

    Let’s make November the season of gratitude. What a lovely reminder. I am grateful for so many things and one of them is you. I truly appreciate you and your time devoted to this blog. I have been inspired by you in my clothes choices as well as by other goodies you have shown us. Those bee glasses are now on my table. Your cutting board is now in my kitchen. I could go on and on….
    Thank you, Beth, for being my virtual friend.

  14. Jere L Wright says:

    I agree with your statements, I’m always grateful and thankful. Thank You for you words and sharing yourself with us. Happy Thanksgiving!

  15. Alecia says:

    I am so very thankful that I discovered your blog this summer. Instead of just thowing on a tee shirt and shorts or slacks, I am actually styling my look. I am also accessorizing. I gathered up my nerve and went grey this summer. It has simplified my life and looks great. This has been so much fun.

    Thank you.
