It’s easy to get wrapped up in the hoopla of the holidays, but Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday for a couple of reasons: there’s no gift giving involved and it’s about recognizing what you’re thankful for in your life.  The food factor doesn’t hurt either, and this year I’m pretty lucky to have two Thanksgivings to celebrate with two sides of my family.  Also, my brother-in-law and his fiance’ have been cooking up some Turkish meals that are to die for, and I’m getting my palate ready for our trip to Turkey next May.  I’m a pretty lucky lady and I have a lot to be thankful for: my health, my work, all of you that read this blog, and of course:

A superstar husband

My family

So many amazing friends and equally amazing memories

And plenty of good meals.
