Happy Thanksgiving

An anonymous snapshot of any woman, any where, circa 1950. I can not imagine plating my turkey, carrying it outside for a snapshot all while risking it falling to the ground, and my family tolerating the removal of the main entree from the house, haha. Thanksgiving here in America stands for traditions, family, friends, a time to put aside disagreements and simply appreciate our blessings, no matter how great or small.

I wish for you, dear visitor, a day filled with gratitude, a season filled with hope, and the coming year to be filled with all of life’s blessings.

    I love this photo! It seems to sum up so much about 1950s domesticity, and yet it is so personal – she is so proud of the turkey she has cooked for her family on this special day.

    Happy Thanksgiving! The light was better outside or they ran out of flashbulbs:)

    Perhaps this “housewife” lived in southern California. Just a guess based on the patio covering above her and the house from across the street being reflected in the window…
