Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday! It marks the start to a new season, and since I've lived on my own, its a time to enjoy with my family! This is the week that marks the beginning of all the holiday festivities! As Thanksgiving is this Thursday, most people travel back to their hometowns by Tuesday or Wednesday to spend time with their families and have a few days to eat good food and relax a little. I can't wait to spend the week with my own family in Concord!
So to kick off the holidays a little early, we had our own traditional Thanksgiving dinner before we all left Greensboro in different directions! We each chipped in to put it together: Vlad cooked the rosemary and sage turkey, David brought the rolls, Derek helped with the mac & cheese, Lindley and Nic made the stuffing, Eric and Emma brought gravy and cookies! As a party of 10, and having a Christmas movie as a background, not to mention all the extra mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pasta salad and pumpkin or apple pie for dessert, our family dinner was a perfect setting to say hello to the holidays, as this season is all about realizing what you're thankful for and cherishing the family and friends dearest to you.
