Scenes from Thanksgiving -- AKA "The Table"...

I'll post more photos soon, but wanted to give you a glimpse of the finished product. Our Thanksgiving was lovely, and now I'm just getting settled back into our routine after a busy and lively week of family and friends and a criminal amount of food and wine.

And the table that my husband made with his very own two hands (and moved into the house Wednesday evening -- nothing like right up to the wire, no?) turned out to be insanely gorgeous (if I do say so myself.)

I am so proud of Bryan. It's a masterpiece. I am a lucky girl.
