Thanksgiving might just be my favorite holiday. Cooking, eating, drinking friends, family... Does it get much better than that? There's no pressure of gift buying, crazy holiday shopping, it's all just about coming together with the people that are most important to you and being grateful for what fortunate lives we all live.
This will be our second year hosting and we can't wait. I love the feeling of having our home filled with our greatest friends, everyone so happy to be together, all the yummy smells from the kitchen. I know, I know, I'm totally cheesing out right now, but it really is such a wonderful time. There will be 12 of us this year which is perfect considering that's about all our table can hold. Everyone is bringing a tasty dish or 2 and a bottle of wine for the table. Robb & I will be heading up the turkey & mashies (Robb's a master mashie maker) again this year, sure to be yummier than ever!
So wherever you are and whomever you're with, Happy Thanksgiving from Mia, Robb & Mona!

Get in here...

Robb says this to me all the time. Whether he's referring to getting into his sweatshirt for a hug, under a blanket for a movie or into bed for a snuggle. I saw this and thought of him...

Wedding Pix

We were finally able to finish looking thru our wedding pix the other night. They are so amazing and we couldn't be happier with HVK as our photographer. She & her assistant Heather were so great with all of us and captured some wonderful shots.
Just a few of our faves:

Nemo First Friday

My talented husband will be exhibiting new work this Friday November 7th at the Nemo 1st Friday group photo show. The show is titled "Thanksgiving" and is a silent auction to raise money for the Oregon Food Bank. The artist's only direction was to shoot something they are grateful for.
Should be a really interesting show, I love seeing how other people interpret what something means to them.
I'm also really excited because this is the first time since we moved to Portland that Robb is showing new work. I'm so proud of him and I'm totally in love with the piece he submitted.
Come and check it out for yourselves! Nov. 7th, 6pm-10pm @ Nemo 1875 SE Belmont St. PDX
