The lover of food that I am, I couldn't miss the chance to post about a holiday that is (partly) about eating delicious food... a lot of it... all day. But I really wanted to take a moment (or a few lines) to say Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you are all able to surround yourself with people you care about to celebrate all that you have to be thankful for (not to mention to stuff yourself full of seriously good food).
For the last 2 years for family night we made a turkey (see above) and on each feather we put things that we are thankful for. We have fun making it and it's a fun reminder: both to think of things to write down and to have a visual reminder of all that we have. We even ran out of feathers before we ran out of things to be thankful for. It is always nice to step away from the "I want" 's and take a look at what we have and how blessed we really are.
I spent all afternoon today baking and I have every intention of spending all afternoon tomorrow eating what I (and others) have baked, and I will enjoy every bite. What a fabulous holiday, really. But not just for the food. For the chance to take some time to think about and express gratitude for all that you have and to spend time with those you care about. And for the heaps of delicious food. I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving wherever you go, whatever you eat, whatever you do!
