Happy Pre-Thanksgiving, all! Thus marks one of my favorite times of year! With Thanksgiving comes the first tidings of the Advent and Christmas seasons. It is a time for family, friends, rest, and wonder. I am so excited to do a special “Thanksgiving” themed Wednesday Wanderment with you today! Let’s dive in!
My Most Memorable Thanksgiving
This is probably a funny sort of memory, but I remember one year in high school I was MAJORLY sick with a wicked sinus infection. Normally on Thanksgiving, I was hugely integral to all the cooking frenzies in the kitchen, but that year, I laid in a big comfy chair and watched Food Network for HOURS on end. I still participated in family stuff, but before it and after it, I was in that comfy chair watching Giada and Paula make delicious treats. I have no idea why that Thanksgiving sticks in my mind so much, but it does, :-).
