LOOKING BACK: Thanksgiving 2013

The last two years, Tim and I spent Thanksgiving in San Francisco. While we both have families that whole-heartedly celebrate the holiday (his in Seattle, mine in Boise), we opted to save money by only traveling once during the holiday season. Christmas was to be with our folks, and Thanksgiving we stayed here.

The first year, it seemed a little weird at first - like we were picking a random day on the calendar and calling it "Thanksgiving." (Crazy how different it feels when your mom isn't waking you up with coffee and Christmas music shaking the house?! I guess this is adulthood.) Once we got used to it, we quickly understood what a special memory we would have.

By year two (last year), we realized we had created traditions.  Holiday rolls & mimosas in the morning, football in the park, and cooking our own Thanksgiving menu. (Heavy on the stuffing, light on the green bean casserole.)  I'll admit that last year, we sort of cheated and ordered the main courses pre-made from Whole Foods. But - that's like THE most delicious meal ever and made our lives a little easier. Our friend Kyle joined us and looking back, I think the three of us agree that it was one of the best days we've had in San Francisco.... maybe ever? Kyle took a few great photos that I never shared. I figured, on the eve of another Thanksgiving - what better time than now?








This year, we've got a little something different planned. I can't wait to share! Wishing you & your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving.
