Sometimes the rush of Thanksgiving prep and the kick-off of the holiday season can overshadow the joy of taking time out to be grateful.
I already shared some fun fall letter board ideas this year, but I thought swapping the boards to quotes specific to Thankgiving might prompt me to SLOW DOWN for a moment each day when I see them.
Or even better, they may make me laugh and relax as I walk by!
But then I remembered the somewhat gross part that I’m thankful I’ve always avoided. Prepping the turkey!
Speaking of turkeys, I swapped out a kitchen board and now it makes me hum Carly Rae Jepsen.
I wanted to test it out and can confirm it’s the perfect starter kit (or 6th letter board if you’ve got a collection / obsession going like me.) The little clippers in our bundle didn’t work, but I’ve always used scissors so that wasn’t a big deal. I was more excited about the fact that it came with an organizing container and a little easel!
The easel makes it so easy to add a board to any flat surface as part of our home decor.
We ended up doing some letter mixing and matching of gold letters and 2″ white letters to create a great Friends quote from the Thanksgiving episode where Rachel makes a Trifle…using two different recipes after pages stuck together.
Continuing the TV show quote theme, I had to including a Gilmore Girls Thanksgiving episode classic.
For the first decade of our marriage, we could totally relate to the time Rory and Lorelai had to attend four Thanksgiving dinners.
If you’re in the multi-dinner crowd, start your training now! I always had to keep in mind that we were beyond lucky to have so many places to be because it was stressful.
Last year, Corey drew a fun Thanksgiving saying for his Instagram account…
The phrase is also cute on our white letter board!
And it’s mostly true. Fluffy dinner rolls with a bit of stuffing and gravy are all I really need.
I have SO MANY other ideas I want to put on our boards! I think they’ll be getting swapped out again at least once before Thanksgiving actually arrives.
How to Make a Changeable Thankful Letter Board
One that we’d definitely be doing is a Thankful board. The top part will say…
And then we’ll keep a bag of letters next to the board. Each day, we can each swap out what we’re thankful for during the 10 days leading up to Thanksgiving.
