Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays. For me, it kicks off the entire holiday season. Halfway through the meal, the background music changes to Christmas music, and when our guests leave tonight the Christmas lights will be shining.

I know that some people have mixed feelings about this particular holiday, but when you boil it down to its essence what you have is...gravy! No, just kidding. When you boil it down, what you have is people helping other people, even when it goes against their own self-interest. And people honestly grateful for that help. Celebrating that help.

We could use a little -- heck, a LOT -- more of both in our world.

So Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you have many things to be grateful for in your life. And that many more good things will come your way in the future.

  1. I do want to point out though that someone should have given that stuffing a little more attention. Dried bread cubes and a couple of bay leaves are just pathetic.

  2. Yeah, definitely an afterthought to the photo set-up. Even running the cubes under water first would have been an improvement. :)

    Josh, wishing you a wonderful, festive Thanksgiving with your family, especially your SO and Marlowe. Take care. <3

  3. I was too focused on the wine to notice the dressing - work has been a disaster today, so I’m counting down the hours until my first glass of wine!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your guests and enjoy your holiday season.

    1. He was so excited--and exhausted by the end of the evening. He was snoring loudly during the night. LOL
