Weekly {City} Lettering: Plymouth, Massachusetts

It's 10pm, & as I'm sitting here writing this post, I'm working on my 3rd piece of my dad's pumpkin pie. After I ate a piece of our first "Italian Apple Cake." Next up: Hot Chocolate, probably. It's safe to say I'm in a sort of food coma. Not the kind where I can't move, but the opposite; I can't stop eating...literally. I'm trying very hard, but there's so much food, & I'm just getting too excited, & the downside is that my body isn't telling me it's time to just. not. eat. anymore. I hope your Thanksgiving has been just as limitless!

Speaking of Thanksgiving, the only appropriate city to sketch was the one & only, Plymouth, Massachusetts. It's where this holiday began, & it's where I wanted to take you today (tonight) & remember how lucky & blessed we are to have such a holiday. Apparently they've already begun their 400th year celebration countdown (in 6 years, but who's counting?)! The last time I was in Plymouth was in 11th grade, & I remember great seafood, interesting Pilgrim museums, the one & only Mayflower, & a really quaint, New England atmosphere.

If you ever visit this historic town, they have great events surrounding the Thanksgiving celebration

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, & feel grateful for all of the blessings you have, no matter how great, not great, or in the middle--it's all of these things to be grateful for in the big picture. Here are a couple of moments that make me grateful today:

Great family dinner...

New family puppy ("little sister")...

& Great city views from the park!

I hope & pray you had a great holiday & can avoid any "food comas" that may take over you this weekend!
