thanksgiving in the mountains

With the powers of Jared's full time job & my part time job combined, we knew pretty early on that a trip home to our families for Thanksgiving wasn't in the stars for 2014. Fortunately, some of Jared's coworkers planned a little cabin getaway in the mountains, & were sweet enough to take us in as part of their Friendsgiving feast. We had a truly delightful and delicious day. Without further ado... A LOT of pictures of our Thanksgiving.

What better way to spend Thanksgiving than in the mountains of Virginia in a historic log cabin, right?

spent the entire day feeding my puppy fever.

Jared & Matti take the canoe for a spin, & all I hear as they turn the corner is Jared singing, "JUST around the river beeeeeend..."

2014 has brought us so many twists & turns, & as much to grow into as we have to be thankful for. Incredible things, really. Holidays without my father-in-law's Mexican dishes gracing the table in some capacity, or my parents' dogs, or a family viewing of Elf in the evening are something I'd like to avoid for... well, forever. You just can't substitute for family. But we are so grateful for friends & pups alike & their invitation & hospitality that made for a wonderful stay in the mountains.

I hope your Thanksgiving was amazing. Let the most wonderful time of the year commence!
