Twilight Thursday on Thanksgiving Day!

Hey, everyone!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I have so, so very much to be grateful for, I don't know where to start...but all I can say is that I look forward to today for soooooo many reasons.  Every day, really, for those same reasons..most of all, the family that I have...and the fact that they understand the TRUE meaning of family, unconditional love, and that they are able to embrace how very special all of the above really is  <3

So....while we will all be busy with food, family, and feasting today, we also have a little bit of fun for you today over on The Greeting Farm Blog!

We are doing a special "TWILIGHT THURSDAY" mini-Blog-hop and with the celebration of Breaking Dawn's release and the big vampire/human nuptials taking place...we have some inspiration for you!

Here's my card:

My card reminds me of Rosalie Cullen.  I used her because I think she came the furthest throughout the story line, beginning with Twilight (the 1st book and into Breaking Dawn (the 4th and last).  She always had issues with Bella, perhaps some personal and some concerning her family, but in the end she recognized the TRUE MEANING OF FAMILY  when she set her differences aside, even while maintaining her spunky personality, but really did the right thing in the end and rallied around her brother and his wife and well...that's a beautiful thing ;)

I thought the movie really personified all that and really loved the character that was portrayed in Breaking Dawn.  And..yeah...I saw it!  Of course I did, I went opening day!
In fact, here is a picture of me and my BFF Pammy getting ready for our 4-movie marathon, ending with the midnight premiere of Breaking Dawn this past Thursday:

LOVE this lady...she always has my back and we have the best laughs!  Oh- and see our cute slouchy beanie hats?  She makes them!  You've gotta check out her blog and see all the cute stuff she has for sale!

...and don't forget to head back to the TGF BLOG to leave a comment and enter to WIN one of the two "I do" stamp sets up for grabs this weekend to celebrate the Breaking Dawn movie :)

Well, last but not least, I'd like to just take a minute to tell you all how grateful I am for the friendships forged and what wonderful support we all are to each other here in blog land.  I know I haven't had much time these past few weeks to come by and I really hope to relax this weekend...but it definitely needs to be said that I think this community is pretty darn awesome :)  Love and hugs to you and yours...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Rosalie likeness achieved! It's totally what I thought too! I agree with you on all fronts about her character in the films. The books go into more depth about her growth too, but yeah, she becomes quite the sis!

Im thankful for this blog community too. The farm has given me you, and for that, there aren't words. I know that we live worlds away, and we are from different universes alltogether, but there is a tie in our souls and I'm glad I've gotten to know you a bit better and that we have begun a friendship. If you ever need anything, I'm so here for ya. Hugs and happy turkey day.

Awesome card by the way, maybe someday I can become crafty like you too, until then, I'll just bake! Ha ha ha
