When I was a little girl I would always put on a Thanksgiving play for my family. I would make my cousins be the pilgrims and I would be the Indian chief. We would make costumes out of paper sacks and construction paper. I would write the scripts, direct the play, and take the leading role (of course!) We would end the “big show” by having everyone in the family share what they were thankful for…. ya know audience participation was key. (Especially, when are starting to lose them. If you ask my mom, she would tell you that these performances would go on for HOURS! Sure mom, whatever!) Sometimes I would even cut out feathers for everyone to write their special thanks on before sharing.
These memories of entertaining my family are what make me reflect on why I became a wedding planner in the first place. I love to entertain. I love watching people come together and share in special moments. I love making memories.
I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! You don’t have to put on a play or cut out Indian feathers, but take a moment to create your own special memories and share what you are thankful for.
Gotta run and work on my costume for tomorrow!
