Crazy Thankful

Earlier this month the boys and I got to tag along on a field trip to see replicas of the Nina and the Pinta.
I didn't go on the boats, but I could see from above just how small and open they were.

This makes me think that those travelers with Columbus were either desperate or crazy. Or maybe a little of both.

This Thanksgiving I would like to send a big, sloppy, wet, Nina inspired THANK YOU to another group of nutty folks.
My family.
Over the course of the past nine months as I have worked on the book (writing, making the crafts, staging the parties for the photo shoots, testing the recipes over and over) there have been many moments of desperation and crazy thinking on my part. Despite all of this, my family, every single one of them, has stepped up to the plate, has thrown their lot in with mine, and have come to my aid and rescue over and over.
So far my experience is a little bit like having a baby. You are not ever 100% sure of what you are going to get. But regardless of whatever comes next, whether this thing flies or not, I know that standing beside me is a group of wonderful, amazing, talented and supportive people who love me more than I deserve.
Today I am crazy thankful for them.


  1. The meal has been eaten.
    The kitchen is clean.
    The leftovers are stashed.
    The walk has been taken.
    Everyone is happy and fed and blessed.
    Now I have the time to stop by.
    On this Thanksgiving Day, I wanted to tell you that I am thankful for you; for this blog; for inspiration and connection. Sending you much love, Relyn
