It may be a holiday commemorating the slaughter of native peoples due to our own stupidity and ignorance, but it is also a holiday about giving and sharing, and about spending time with your loved ones. Oh, and food. Lots of food.
Reid had to work on Thanksgiving day, so we did a little Thanksgiving-for-two the Monday before. We had everything a Thanksgiving meal needed, just for the two of us! We spent all day in the kitchen cooking, then devoured our meal, and spent the rest of the night recovering, all side by side.
And that was what I was most thankful for this year: my husband, Reid. We've been married almost six months now, and I am grateful to have him in my life everyday. He is an incredibly caring, generous man, who gives me everything I could ever want and more. He cooks breakfast for me whenever I ask, and does the dishes, and sometimes laundry. He takes out the trash and recycling, makes fires for me in our fireplace, and drives wherever we need to go. And he keeps me warm with his abnormally high body temperature. I love him and I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him. And, of course, cooking more and more elaborate Thanksgiving feasts!
~Thank you to all my friends and family who read this blog! I love sharing with you. I am not very good at keeping in touch individually, so please take this post as a little note to you all; Thank you for all your love and support! I cherish your hearts and souls, and think about them often, even if it is never said. Happy Thanksgiving!~
