A Thanksgiving Wish

Hope you are taking the day off from blogging to spend time with your loved ones this Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy! You deserve it!

What I'm thankful for:

  • My husband, who can build stuff and looks great doing it, who is the best person in the world to enjoy happy hour with, and who is a world-class dad
  • Our girls, who are just super-cool, funny and kind human beings and bring immeasureable joy to our lives
  • Our house, which is warm most of the time, except when the furnace acts up
  • Our businesses, which allow us to make enough money to pay for repairs to said furnace, feed our family, and even have a little fun now and then...and keep us excited to "go to work" each day
  • Our health
  • Our family and our motley crew of friends, who stick by us even though we're crazy-busy and sometimes a little flaky
  • And the little warm socks, dark chocolate, cups of coffee, a good book, a glass of wine, and chips and guac.

Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Thanksgiving is a week away, can you believe it?! So do you, like the dad on A Christmas Story, love turkey? Or are you more of a side dish person? Me: When it comes to turkey, I'm like...meh. But the sides? Oh, the sides...I dream about the mashed potatoes and stuffing, mixed with gravy and cranberry relish. Not to mention all of my other favorites, which I've listed here for you. So if you haven't planned your menu yet, or if you offered to bring a side to your family's potluck but don't know what to make, here are my family's traditional Thanksgiving side dishes.
