i disappeared (for good reason)

I think that this was my best Thanksgiving to date, hands down,

and I have to say that I’m absolutely thrilled and immensely excited for Christmas in less than a month!

Ryan flew back out to Arizona last night, and I have to say that it sucked.

It sucked a lot,

but the bright side is that he’s back in less than three weeks.

Ryan flew into Boston early Thursday morning,

and we drove the three hours up to my parents’ house in northern New Hampshire.

It was so. cold.

But honestly, I wouldn’t have traded it for anything in the world.

On Saturday, my parents took Ryan and I to the Mount Washington Resort to celebrate our engagement.

They treated us to a pretty decadent lunch,

and we enjoyed the amazing scenery.

We also finally got to meet our minister on Saturday evening.

He and his wife are just amazing.

They are incredible people with such a down-to-earth perspective on marriage.

We’ll see them again the day after Ryan gets in on leave, and we’re really looking forward to it.

In just barely over one month, I’ll get to marry the most amazing man in the world.

I have everything in the world to be thankful for, and seriously,

this was the best Thanksgiving ever.
