Encouraging Hearts and Home: Getting Ready for Turkey Day

Here in the United States we have Thanksgiving next Thursday and I am deep in preparation mode; planning our menu, thinking about table décor, getting the house cleaned, etc.  My features this week are all from last week's party and helped inspire me to get a move on! 

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

  1. I love the anticipation of Thanksgiving!

    1. Me too! I am getting so excited about baking and cooking and eating.

  2. I feel like it is the calm before the storm because of the upcoming holidays. Like you, I'm already preparing, but I'm also trying to appreciate the peace and calm because I know we have a busy month ahead.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. Thankfully our month isn't usually that busy; but we tend to have weekends or clumps of days here and there that are busy... with plenty of downtime in between.

  3. Good morning, Joanne! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is a week away, and then on to Christmas. Thank you so much for hosting. I hope you have a beautiful week.

  4. I am so excited for thanksgiving! Thanks for the party!

  5. Joanne,
    Thanks again for hosting this lovely party every week! I know how much time and effort goes into doing so and I want you to know that it is greatly appreciated!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  6. We have gathered out supplies, and can't wait to get cooking! Have a great week ahead, take care.

    1. I can't either. I love how the whole house smells on Thanksgiving.

  7. We are keeping it super low key this Thanksgiving! I might even just order out food. Ha. Thanks for hosting the party, my friend!


    1. We keep it very low key each year; it's usually just us 5 and I only cook our favorites. This year the 2 moms are joining us (and my step father!) but everyone is bringing something so I actually have less to make. We wear jeans and comfy clothes and watch movies.

  8. Ohh! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. x
