First of all, to clear up any confusion, Doughnut Hole is the name of the house I live in with my four roommates.
And tonight we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving before we all went home for break. We went all out, and I’ve decided to let the pictures do the talking.
But first we had to say Grace the Alpha Gam way. Its a little blurry, but, let’s be honest, our beautiful voices are what’s really speaking to your souls.
It’s rare that all of us are in one place for a given meal, especially during this time of the semester when everyone is bogged down with group projects, presentations, papers, and finals are looming over our heads. When we finally nailed down a day and began making the grocery list, I was so excited to have something to look forward to in a hectic week.
This meal was the perfect excuse to break out one of my most favorite things I’ve ever made: the hot guy apron
1.) Modeling aprons is awkward 2.) A few personal favorites close up…
The fabric is from an Alexander Henry line and a similar apron pattern can be found here. Aprons are a great gateway from sewing simple things like pillows to clothes. You get experience working with patterns and stitches that accomplish more than a straight line.
Working together to make the meal and seeing everyone around the table with all of our homework tucked away for the time being was a nice reminder that these girls are my second family and this is my home away from home. The time I’ve spent with my chosen few over the past 2.5 years has been invaluable and has shaped me in ways I’m sure I don’t even realize. I owe my best times to them and have counted on them during my worst. I don’t know where I’ll be in ten years, or five years, or even one year, but I know I’ll always have them, and that’s what I’m thankful for today.
What are you thankful for this season?
Peace and Progress,
