I’m getting so excited about the holiday season. It’s my favorite time of year. I love the smells, the yummy food, the family , friends and laughter. I’ve decided to host thanksgiving this year , which will be pretty low key but I’m still happy about it. My head is spinning with ideas of what I want to make, obviously the traditional turkey but for the sides do I want to do plain old stuffing or stuffing with cranberries or some other fancy smancy stuffing. I know this sounds ridiculous because it’s just stuffing , but you know it’s more than that. It’s the taste , the flavor the conversations it will start and the memories that will be made.. whether we have a big turn out or a small cozy gathering.
Then there’s the parade. There’s nothing like the enjoyment of watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade ( this year I’m figuring out how to stream it beforehand, so we don’t miss out like last year). Sharing that tradition with my kids will be awesome! I dream of being there to experience it in person …. some day it will happen.
But really the nest part is time spent with my loved ones making memories to last a lifetime. Which is why I love this season so much I get to see my family a bit more than I regularly do and I’m always okay with that.
