After my trip to the grocery yesterday, I’m indulging in a fantasy to spend Thanksgiving at a beautiful resort like Blackberry Farm. It seems everyone else is trying to start their food shopping early.
How fantastic would it be to wake up in one of their cottages, piping hot coffee delivered to your door….deciding whether you would go horseback riding or hiking…and dressing for a turkey dinner, with all the trimmings, that you did NOT have to cook (or clean up)?!
But, as I will be cooking and having company this week, I think I’ll just look to the tips of Kreis Beall, founder of Blackberry Farm, as told to Williams-Sonoma in 2013, to make our Thanksgiving as special as possible.
As it’s a busy week at our house, I’m signing off for the week. I would like to wish you and your dear ones a most wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. May the turkey be plentiful and the conversations civil!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Elizabeth. I am fortunate to go to my sisters for the holiday (but we always have Christmas, so I will need to get prepared for that). Blackberry Farm is such a beautiful place, Kris is an amazing visionary, and I was so sad to hear earlier this year of the passing of her wonderful son Sam. Sending everyone blessings on this most thankful of all holidays.
