Love me some November, and this month brings both joy and a touch of sadness as our dear friends and next-door neighbors embark on a grand adventure down under. For the next two years, Australia will be their new home. We’ll miss them dearly, but what an incredible opportunity for their family, especially with two adventurous boys aged 5 and 8. We wish them all the best in this exciting journey!
We are absolutely delighted to have the honor of hosting Thanksgiving this year, uniting many of our family members under one roof for this cherished occasion. Thanksgiving holds a special place in our hearts, especially for my mom and stepdad, as there’s nothing they treasure more than being surrounded by their children and grandchildren. Their excitement knows no bounds, and I consider myself truly fortunate that they are here living close by at Lake Norman. While we enjoyed our time visiting the beach, having them close and being able to see them regularly is a blessing we don’t take for granted. As we gear up for the holiday season, we want to extend our warmest wishes to all of you for a Thanksgiving filled with joy and lasting memories!
