Heaven Sent Holiday

I love my mother in law–she declares Thanksgiving as her holiday of the year.   We are all required to show up and sit around, eat, and chat.  The children and their cousins hit the basement and play non-stop and there are hours of uninterrupted adult conversation!  I think all the other mother’s out there can agree that this scenario is absolutely heaven sent!  This year—I will be taking a holiday salad just to feel as I am contributing some.  Check out this great vision of beauty straight off pinterest.  It’s the winter berry wreath salad—-to die for and nothing but healthy ingredients!
