Our Thanksgiving Manor

My hubby and I actually met on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, at his aunt and uncle's house in a small town just east of Phoenix. His sister and I were college buddies and fellow RAs and she invited me because she thought I'd hit it off with her brother. Indeed.

We were actually engaged three months later, to tbe day. The 23rd, in fact, will mark the 7th anniversary of our meeting!!

So going back every year for Thanksgiving is special for us. And for the past few years, since the family has grown so much, we've been staying in a local "dive" rather than crashing at our host's house. The place is old but decently clean...but definitely not very special. At all.

Well, this year I'm pregnant and we are really in need of some R & R. So I started looking at other options for where we could stay.

Bed and breakfasts are by far my favorite place to stay and this town has a few good ones. This one has only been open for a little over a year so I'm glad to be giving them our business, and only for about $5 more than the Motel 6!!

Here's where we use to stay.



And here's the Dream Manor Inn where we'll be crashing this year.

Talk about an upgrade.
