Every once in awhile, the planets align and I am organized enough ahead of schedule to share holiday ideas before the actual holiday.
This is that.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Beyond loving the reminder to be thankful, I love it for two more reasons.
One, I can fill up the table with tons of delicious dishes and not feel guilty about having gone overboard.
Because going overboard is key. A week’s worth of leftovers as we tiptoe full blast into the crazy holiday season is not a bad thing.
The second reason? Because our gratitude tree comes out.
It’s one of my favorite traditions, and every year, it’s fun to look back and see what people wrote on their leaves from previous years.
And who was at our table.
Exes. In-laws. Friends. Family.
A reminder of what was important then.
And what is important now.
Although I haven’t hosted our family Thanksgiving in a few years, I have instead had a Bloggers Thanksgiving Feast.
So I’m doing something else.
Changing it up.
And cannot wait.
And in the meantime?
A little round-up of Thanksgiving suggestions for you as I share some of our favorite go-tos for the holiday. You just might find YOUR newest tradition here too.
