The sumptuous table
Its time to get down to business, make a plan, a theme, or at least a menu for goodness sakes. I’m looking for that extra something that makes a Thanksgiving dinner special. The wonderful smells coming from the kitchen as the turkey turns to a golden brown are nice and the festive look of a crisp white table-cloth and fresh flowers certainly helps but there’s something else I’m looking for. It’s that feeling of welcomeness, the sound of engaging conversation and oh yes, that intimate connection of family. Every year I scurry around in an attempt to make everything look just right, details, details, and prepare something a little out of the ordinary to make the dinner extra special. When none of that really matters at all because all of the ingredients needed for the perfect meal over a sumptuous table is already in place the moment the family arrives.
*Not five minutes after posting this I looked out my window and no more than three feet away was a big tom turkey strutting himself across the yard. I guess this was his way of reminding me who is really the star of most Thanksgiving Day tables.

I’m Java June or Junie as my friends call me. I’m just a hopeless romantic with a master’s degree in all things dreamy. I could be described as a mid-western girl-next-door with a case of wander lust. My curiosity for all things that cannot be explained sometimes gets me in some unusual predicaments. Come dream with me between the pages of my diary.
This diary reveals a curious soul who can’t stop looking for little sprinkles of magic through the lens of her camera.
