    Also really feeling the idea of a good old fashioned wreath these days.  A bit of a throw back, but just so pretty.  Hmmm…must develop further…

  7. Thanksgiving 2014

    October 14, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Wishing each and everyone of you a Happy Thanksgiving, a full belly and a sense of gratitude for all we’ve been given.  It was a lovely, family-filled weekend with wonderful weather and even better food!

    Sara and I hosted a meal at our house today and it all started with baking my Nana’s apple cake the night before…

    There was lots and lots of chopping to follow…

    I made my mom’s recipe for stew and filled this huge mixing bowl with seasonal vegetables.

    And you certainly can’t have stew without the accompanying biscuits!

    Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 7.58.07 PM

    The table was a mix of old and new, fine and casual and it looked even better crowded full of family and toddlers!

    Tomorrow is another week full of who knows what, but for now, just enjoying the calm quiet night finishing off our long Thanksgiving weekend.
