But it was gorgeous yesterday when we sat down to our Thanksgiving Turkey with our son and a friend. It felt a bit odd, our daughters all having their dinner in Vancouver without us, but it would have been one weekend too many to travel (for all of us), especially with the craziness that is BC Ferries on the busiest weekend of the year. And although we missed them, it makes me happy to know that they can pull off a festive family meal without their dad or I presiding. They phoned and e-mailed photos, and it was pleasingly obvious how much they enjoy each other's company.
And I wouldn't have been the best host anyway, stuck under a pile of marking as I have been. I did make the pumpkin pie, and I did get dressed for dinner, although this isn't the outfit I wore. Rather, this bit of Visibility was a teaching outfit I loved a couple of weeks ago and photographed to share. My Acne boots, a denim skirt (Esprit, several years old) a Banana Republic cardigan (also several years old) and a fall-toned print scarf. Easy to wear, casual but smart, in my opinion. I'll repeat this one, for sure.
