right now my home is being filled with the smell of ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar happily blending and baking in what i hope to be the best tasting pumpkin cheesecake pie...ever. today we went to pick up my sister and her boyfriend from the airport. while we were waiting for their arrival and watching people welcome their loved ones, asher voiced an especially sweet observation. "they sure like to kiss in here!" i am thankful for pumpkin cheesecake and for the fact that i have so many wonderful people to kiss. if you are celebrating thanksgiving tomorrow...may it be a warm and cozy one!
