Thankful!

Last weekend, Brody and I enjoyed a few days in Tucson for my 20th year High School reunion. We’re thankful for safe travels, a wonderful time with my brother and his family as well as my aunt and uncle, and a fun time reconnecting with my classmates at the reunion. The reunion committee, Kami, Bryan, Adan, Angel, Mischelle, and Julie, pulled together a very special evening for my classmates. The buffet was excellent, and they were right – they certainly thought of everyone as they chose food options that would work for people with various diet restrictions. Brody was able to choose a delicious meal from the options. Thank you to the committee for all your hard work these past several months! You did a great job and included so many thoughtful details! I was especially thankful that we all had name tags and the name tags even had our Senior photos. I wish I could have visited more with our classmates, but we had to leave before the party was over since we had an early morning the next day.

This trip made me thankful again for my thoughtful hubby. He was a great sport to spend his time off work making sure I was able to attend the reunion and spend time with my family, too. I probably would not have driven on my own, and so I’m thankful for his willingness to help me get there. Brody and I love road trips and this one was no exception. We listened to most of J. I. Packer’s “Knowing God” on audio along with some other sermons Brody had selected for us. The weekend was a real treat for which we are thankful.

On the subject of road trips, here’s a new favorite for us:

The hummus is the same as I posted here, except I’ve added a couple of tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil since I first posted the recipe. The crackers are the same as in A Recipe for Survival (page 111), except for a healthier oil option, I’ve substituted coconut oil for the butter. For additional nutrition, I’ve added chia seeds and sunflower seeds. We love these crackers and hummus on road trips!
