Happy 4th Birthday to the American Homestead
blog! Four years ago today I started my blogging
journey, it also happened to be my birthday so I
thought that would be good luck. I had no clue
about how to blog, I didn't really know how to
upload photos from my camera and I think I was
a bit shy about writing whatever I wanted for all
the world to see. Oh , how times have changed!
My daughter sent me off to eastern Europe four
years ago with an index card with a few instructions
written on it and somehow I figured out how to do it.
Avalon, our American Homestead, has been filled with
people who have come to visit for Thanksgiving week.
Kasey, our Hawaiian daughter (Kate's former college
roommate) lives on the beach in Hawaii but makes us
happy by spending some of her Thanksgivings with us.
Last night, to kick off my birthday celebration, she made
me Haupia ~ a coconut custard that tastes like a pina
colada, it was delish! Thanks Kasey! (And Kasey's Mom
who sent out the mix from Hawaii).
It has been a busy week of movie watching, talking and
feasting. Photos of our feasts will be sure to show up on
future blog posts.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and thank
you for visiting the American Homestead!
