Inspiration Workshop: Thanksgiving!

We all know Thanksgiving and Christmas are the two absolute best times of the year. Thanksgiving is all about being thankful, it's good to remind ourselves of all the things we have been blessed with even things we normally take for granted like microwaves, electricity, running water. Now that I think about it, it's really crazy that we don't think twice about having those things. People lived without them {some still do} for thousands of years and suddenly we have them within the last hundred years or so. We are so blessed beyond measure that I'm sure we witness miracles daily without even realizing it. I praise God that I was born in this country and for the friends and family in my life. I thank God that I'm free to worship him here openly and that he answers my prayers. Amen? Amen!

And I'm thankful that I get to make the green bean casserole and the pumpkin pie for my families' Thanksgiving meal! I love pretty food pictures, they always make me hungry. 

Doesn't this version of green bean casserole look delish? And I LOVE the vintage dish it's in. 

Pumpkin pie is my absolute favorite dessert of all time, especially {make that only} if it's homemade. 

And lastly, for all of you out there who are in charge of bringing the pie this year I give you the EASIEST homemade pie crust recipe from The Italian Dish. I used it recently for a pumpkin pie and it was so good. I'm definitely using it again for my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie! :)

Let your hearts {& bellies} be thankful and filled with love.
