A new kind of Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving is the first Thanksgiving in 6 years that Lindsay and I have spent with family. In our California life, traveling to the east coast was reserved for supremely important occasions. Being that Thanksgiving is so close to Christmas, we always stayed on the west coast for this particular holiday. We had Thanksgivings with just the two of us, we hosted feasts with many friends, and we even got to spend a few with a friend and her loving family. But this year, our first east coast Thanksgiving was spent with Lindsay’s Uncles and cousin (whom, considering our 11 year relationship, I have come to consider my Uncles and my cousin too).

It was the most warm and wonderful Thanksgiving I’ve had in a long time. There was lots of laughing, dancing in the kitchen, sassy smack-talking and wonderful food. We had long late night talks over wine, cozy naps, and did plenty of knitting.

I feel so thankful that Lindsay and I have made our move back east and have already been able to do so many of the things we could only dream of doing on the west coast. Spending more time with both of our families has felt so nourishing and necessary and I am truly thankful for that.
