Giving Thanks


 As I enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday, it occurs to me just how much I have to be thankful for this year. 

This Thanksgiving marks the completion of our Casa Gertruda.  While we have been living in it for the past 5 months during the construction, it now truly feels like our home is complete.  The photos below really show its architectural highlights….

 For Thanksgiving dinner, we sat down to such a delightful feast with family…..
And our home, gave us a feast for the eyes as well….

There are moments when you stop and realize that…it just doesn’t get much better than this.  This Thanksgiving holiday in our finished labor of love, surrounded by family and friends, and basking in the sense of gathering that this home promotes, I felt a sense of completeness that I just may have never felt before.  It is remarkable to me how much a home can instill a sense of place, protection, and peace. Far more than shelter, a home’s warmth wraps us in comfort, evokes security, and embraces our soul.

And so, from Mi Casa to Su Casa…

I wish you a season of Gratitude and the Joy that always follows.

Enjoy the moments,
