The Mechanic and I spent Thanksgiving in the Ozarks, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, to be precise. This was my third trip to NW Arkansas, the first time being right before Christmas five years ago. This time, we met up with The Mechanic’s siblings, the very same ones we’d just been to Disney World with, to spend the holiday with their father, who lives just north of the Arkansas border, in Missouri. We all congregated in a lake house on the edge of Beaver Lake.
On this trip, I was thankful for:
Thanksgiving lunch at local favorite, Myrtie May’s Cafe.
The beautiful rocky landscape of NW Arkansas
A return trip to Hammontree’s for grilled cheese and gourmet veggie dogs
And of course, spending time with The Mechanic’s family.
It’s hard to believe we are already into December, and everyone’s thoughts have turned to the holidays. Nevertheless, I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, full of family and good food, in every and all variation of both.
