As most of you know, Thanksgiving is my family’s favorite holiday. There’s something about the simplicity of the day that appeals to us. And the fact that we all love good food certainly doesn’t hurt. I think it also has something to do with never having TV at the Berg household. Due to that wise choice on the part of my parents, we never had football, the Macy’s Day Parade, or Black Friday competing with our celebration. Thanksgiving has always meant time with family, giving thanks for our blessings, and enjoying delicious and lovingly prepared food. It’s really quite traditional and I love that so little of modernity encroaches on our lives during the Thanksgiving weekend.
This year the girls were treated to a morning yoga session led by Grace. Grace received her yoga certification this year and so it was really fun to have her lead us in a practice. It sure was fun to do some yoga with the beautiful ladies in my family. And what a setting, huh? Yoga on a cliff overlooking the Pacific really is perfect.
Hilly had her hands full with the boys but managed to join us for the headstands.
I didn’t end up taking a whole lot of pictures, but I did get some shots of Hilary and her adorable family.
And here’s the only picture I took during dinner. So silly of me.
I really need to take more pictures. There are some important people who are missing from my photographic record…sorry Pop and Kate:(.
It was a perfect Thanksgiving and as we went around the table and shared things and memories we are grateful for my heart was very very full.
