Very Thankful!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did a spontaneous trip to Idaho to spend the holiday with my oldest sister, her family, my parents, and some wonderful friends. We had lots of delicious food and some lazy afternoons relaxing, catching up with each other, and relaxing. My husband and I were super excited & lucky to go to the BSU vs Utah State game last night with my sister and her husband where we had a blast cheering the Broncos on to victory. It was a quick trip but wonderful to spend time with family and friends. I’ll be back to cooking new recipes tomorrow.

The one good thing about slow holiday traffic is being able to take a drive-by shot of Multnomah Falls

I love my sister and her family!
