A Turkey A Day :: Day Two

Today's turkey really exemplifies Maria's yearning for embellishment, decor, detail and tape. 3M has to be fairly satisfied with our generous contributions to their bottom line. A heart sprouting flowers... it's so "Glorious," as Maria would say, and she would say it with her hand fluttering over her heart, her head tilted reverently.

Funny about her name. She had the letters in order and facing the right direction before school began, but all the practice seems to have encouraged creative license. I shouldn't be so stingy and trepidatious... real word, honest... I should dig out some glitter and sequence, maybe those zigzag scissors. On the other hand she is accomplishing a great deal with the supplies she has dug up for herself.

Today I am thankful for friends. New friends, old friends, friends I have reconnected with, friends that show up with wine and laughter, new ideas and encouragement... best friends, near and far.

**Last night I hosted Moms' Night Out :: MNO. I love my friends.**

Oh, I love Maria's spirit and artwork! And tape--it brings me back to when my son was little and also went overboard with tape.

I hope you have the happiest of holidays in your new home!

Thank you Sylvia.
I think there is a tape abuse gene, which I passed along for sure!
Happy holidays to you.
