Sell Out for Sweet Potatoes
Greetings from Ottawa, Illinois. I’ll be here until Friday morning on business. The coming weeks promise to be incredibly busy. Next week is Thanksgiving week where I’m due to go back up to northern Virginia to be with family. The week after that I’ll be in Wisconsin on business. The week after that isn’t in stone yet, but it looks like I’ll be in Indiana for business.
When I was driving the four and a half hour trip to Stacy and Louise’s wedding I thought, “You know what? Maybe this is the year where I just stay in Blacksburg for Thanksgiving.” Who could argue with me wanting to stay put for a week? Plus I have gotten to see a lot of my parents this fall with the groomsman dress purchase, the dress fitting and the dress wearing.
I started to pitch the idea to my mother and then I found out we are going to Aunt Maria and Uncle Timmy’s house this year AND Aunt Maria’s sister is coming and bringing her fabulous sweet potatoes with that decadent brown sugar pecan crust.
Suddenly, I was definitely coming home again for Thanksgiving.
I sold out my sanity for sweet potatoes.
It’s going to be worth it.
