jen wore a 1970s black and gray mini dress with an oval neckline and wide sleeves.
both jane + jen conveniently wore vintage belts that could be made to be looser, if so needed*.

jane wore pilgrim-like shoes, comfortable enough to stand for long period of time while stirring the gravy, etc.
jen wore black ankle booties, uncomfortable enough to slip off during dinner and then accidentally play footsie with, honestly mistaking them for her girlfriend's shoes.

.the best part of the day.
(other than staying up until 4am playing board games)

Lu created The Thankful Bowl. During the day - everyone could jot down anything on a little piece of paper and throw it in the bowl. After dinner, full on carbs and butter, we passed the bowl around, taking turns pulling out pieces of paper and reading them aloud.

That little bowl was overflowing with gratefulness. And listening to it all - from our loved ones to our four legged loved ones to our homes to our neighbors that shovel the snow .... it was the perfect moment in a perfect day. (the thankful bowl = a very good idea.)

Hope your holiday was just as warm and fuzzy.
