the tree barn and intentional questions

We get our tree from this barn every year. And this year a cow licked me. Thankful for family who makes time and shows up to keep traditions. Thankful my mom loves memories.

And thanksgiving was wonderful too– Yahtzee and euchre and stuffing and pumpkin flavored Bailey’s. I got tr idea from Shauna Niequist (read http://shaunaniequist.com/thanksgiving-recipe-links-cc-questions-spark-conversation/) to spark conversation with intentional questions such as your most unexpected gift of 2014, your sweetest moment, something you’re very thankful for. And usually people don’t like those kind of questions, but it was cool to push through the initial silence and hear responses of my cousins.
