giving thanks

i grew up in a house with norman rockwell books and illustrations. there is something very familiar, and soothing to his paintings, i think. i loved growing up in the country.... where the house was in need of repair... lots of character to it... which.. to me... makes it cozy. it was a little chaotic at times, and messy... but these pictures just always fit in... and felt good. and you know, there's just a way he drew that made me thankful for family... you know? just the things that remind you of what's really important.

  1. Oh I love Norman Rockwell! There was a buffet that my family would go to when I was still at home that had pictures of his on the wall. My dad's favorite was the big family dinner one, where everyone is looking at the giant turkey except one guy who was looking at the 'camera' in the corner. Mine is the one with the dr looking at the little girl's dolly...so sweet.

    Happy Thanksgiving and go ahead and eat my slice of pie...you deserve it :)
