Happy Thanksgiving

I have much to be thankful for this year as The Mister and I embark on the next adventure in our life together but I am also very, very thankful for the Modern Retro Woman and Grandma’s Sewing Cabinet community.  I will never be able to put into words how special you are to me.  Thank you.

I'm Dr. Julie-Ann, living life in its Technicolor finest by channeling my Grandma, Donna Reed, and June Cleaver with a bit of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly glamour thrown in for good measure, too. I work outside of the home full-time as a university administrator but I nourish my soul and find my greatest happiness by trying to be the "perfect" 1950s homemaker.

    And thank you Julie-Ann for allowing us retro-women to have a place to shine!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours!

    We are having both my children, all our grandchildren & even maybe our new great-grand baby will arrive today (it is “in the works”, LOL)

    I hope your day was filled with good food and a time to relax with your Mister. I also have much to be thankful for, my faith, health, a warm house, food, a loving husband and family, and our now sleeping grandson.
