As I put the last of the dishes away and marvel at the Tetris game happening in my refrigerator with leftovers, I am still smiling from the fabulous Thanksgiving table setting and dinner we hosted in our home.

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and my table is almost set. I know you are surprised since I love to set tables in my dining room. But I am almost done.
