Monument to the Forefathers

As Thanksgiving Day preparations are in full swing at our house, I can’t help but think about the very first Thanksgiving.  On our recent Road Trip through New England, we spent a day exploring the rich history in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  It was an unforgettable day, and definitely a must for anyone’s bucket list.  I’d like to take you on a tour with me today of Plimouth Plantation, The Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, Burial Hill, the Monument to the Forefathers, and more!

So, pull up a comfy chair, grab a pumpkin spice latte or hot cider, and take this trip with me back to the beginning of America and our very First Thanksgiving!  The turkey day prep can wait a little while longer!

As a proud Michigander, I am thrilled to see the revitalization of Downtown Detroit.  If you live in the area, or are planning a visit, you have to visit the city.  There are so many new businesses, restaurants, and shops.  It’s a beautiful place to be. My sister and I saw that first hand during a visit to a pop up Luke’s Diner in Midtown and an afternoon spent at the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts).

As I nestle into my comfy couch, with my second cup ‘o joe for the day and a brownie from Luke’s Diner, I am reminded how bucket list opportunities sometimes “pop up” when we least expect. And that is exactly what happened today.

If you haven’t heard yet, or been bombarded with pictures and status updates on social media, several coffee shops around the country today turned into Luke’s Diner from Gilmore Girls.

My Pre-Baby Bucket List Busting Year

Last year (2015), was what I consider to be my “Bucket List Busting Year”.  After suffering a miscarriage the year before after 5 long years of infertility, I was approaching 2015 thinking it was going to be one of the worst years of my life. The constant reminders of what could have been were always on my mind.

I thought I would spend most of that year caught up in pregnancy reminders from apps on my phone, & devastated at every Thursday that passed as I counted down the weeks to my impending “almost” due date, July 4th.

Instead, much to my surprise, I had one of the best years of my life thanks to the Grace of God and the prayers of family and friends.
