Our holiday weekend was good - each day had some tears but they also had fun in them to balance out the sad side. Thanksgiving morning was rough...it was J's first major holiday since his dad passed away. We tried to watch the Macy's day parade but J ended up in tears saying "We said we'd take our kids to the parade." It was tough...I think it's the first time he's let himself cry in front of me over the losses. After that we decided it was time to go for a walk at the park with the puppies. SO glad we did - it really reset our moods and we burned some calories before we consumed them!
Saturday we did our part for Small Business Saturday. We headed up to Fredericksburg for some shopping. It was so much fun! The weather was perfect. Only downfall was the crowds...so many people had the same idea! I am hoping we can get back up there again before the end of the year. Funny story for you from when we were shopping...we went into a store that sold all sorts of jams, jellies, salsas and sauces...we picked out two jars to purchase after testing many of the samples. Well, if we bought three we'd save 15% on each bottle, so I got to pick out the third...I quickly grabbed the Pineapple and Hatch salsa. After we started driving I asked J what was wrong with me...how did I manage to pick up salsa and not the wild blueberry preserves?!? I am a bit of a nut when it comes to blueberries - especially the wild variety. I think I've been in TX too long...still wondering how this girl from New England who grew up with blueberries in her backyard picked salsa over blueberry jam... Another reason to go back!
I leave you with some pictures :)
