we cleaned, we cooked, we conquered

...and we still love each other after all of it!! thanksgiving was beautiful and everyone at our table (all 18 of them!) agreed. high five, babe. we rock. after a few hiccups along the way- our turkey thermometer breaking, our dishwasher leaking and having to listen to disgruntled neighbors upstairs moving outi called my mom crying, to which she basically said "jamie, shut up, it's all going to be beautiful and no one will notice any of this little stuff" and the woman was right. the moment our first guests walked in, i felt better. jon's mom hugged me over and over telling me how nice of a job i did and it felt amazing. she has hosted their family's thanksgiving for about 20 years so for her to pass the torch to me, i took it as a HUGE honor ya know? but anyways, the food was amazing, our families loved each other and our house looked great. not to mention our fridge is stocked for a good 3 weeks. *host bonus*

  4. Good job!! Someday when we have more space I want to host a Thanksgiving. Everything looked delish and I absolutely love your cake stand! Also, I feel like our men would be great friends because they would bond over their bearded faces.
