My husband brought Marina home from college the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. We hoped to beat the nor'easter that was heading to our area. Everyone else had the same idea. In spite of the horrible traffic, it was nice to have our oldest child home for an extra day. We spent that extra day baking desserts for Thanksgiving, which we held in our living room and shared with my parents. There was plenty of food and the desserts were delicious.
Tomorrow she heads back to finish her semester. Sigh.
