Thanksgiving, to me, has always meant family. My dad comes from a family of six, so Thanksgiving has always meant getting together with aunts, uncles, and cousins, and eating around some (very packed) tables – there are more than 20 of us total! Over the years, to accommodate everyone’s schedules, we’ve started having Thanksgiving “dinner” at noon, to make sure that we could still all get together before people have to head to their next holiday gathering. It may sound cheesy, but I’m thankful for this time to get together and catch up with family members!
I’m also reminded at Thanksgiving how grateful I am for my friends. The holidays are always the perfect time to catch up with friends who are home visiting their own families. I’ve been lucky enough to stay close with friends I’ve known since before high school, and now that some of them have moved away, I love being able to see them while they’re home for Thanksgiving.
And finally, I’m so thankful for all of you! I started this blog a little less than six months ago now, and the kind words from you all have really warmed my heart.
