A Few of My Favorite Thanksgiving Things {Masterpiece Weekend}

 

Masterpiece WeekendThis time let’s do a fun week-before-Thanksgiving post, shall we?

I simply adore the Thanksgiving season. What better time to put all our focus toward what we’re grateful for than right before winter sets in completely. Or maybe that’s the Alaskan in me. I need to be reminded of all of the blessings in this life before walking into a cold, dark season.

Let’s think of it as a time to warm up the heart and keep the fires of true thanksgiving burning before winter brings it’s full fury. Making sure we’re stoking the fire all winter long.

As we move into Thanksgiving week, I know that in addition to preparing our hearts, some of us are preparing our homes. This weekend, I’m sharing some of my favorites of the season with you — some tried and true heart, belly, and soul warming goods.

Enjoy!

Some Thanksgiving Favorites to Make and Do

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spiced Latte – I made this several times last year. Yum. O.

Gooey White Cheddar and Cranberry Dip – you won’t regret it

Shut the Front Door Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
