This is my absolute favorite time of year. The air is crisp, I can smell Christmas coming and nothing feels as good as a Thanksgiving meal. B and I always enjoy decking our halls for Christmas. We usually start pretty early because I get so excited, so I wouldn't be surprised if our outdoor lights were up this weekend.
Since we were with my entire family last weekend, my little brother and I are not making the trip home for Turkey day. He and his girlfriend drove down to our house this evening. It's so relaxing to not have a huge group, but I think we all feel a bit strange without our parents on Thanksgiving.
Nonetheless, we will be going all out tomorrow. Two turkeys (one in the oven, one deep fried), mashed taters, my brother's favorite green beans, my grandma's famous stuffing, and canned cranberries (by special request). My brother's girlfriend made two pies!
This will be my first Thanksgiving with B. I'm so excited to create an awesome meal with him together in our home.
Happy Thanksgiving to All! I hope you all feel as full of thanks as we do.
