Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. The best Thanksgivings are Solomon Family Thanksgivings down in NC. My Aunt Helen and Uncle Ira cook all day and then open their lovely house (sitting on a hill overlooking a lake) to all the family and we eat and eat and eat. The women in my family make the best Chocolate Pie.
Thanksgiving is a listening holiday and a Generational Holiday. Family of all ages comes together and its fantastic to listen to their stories...and maybe even sip a little bourbon as we watch the sun set.
This year, as i only have a day off from work, I can't travel to NC. But my friend Katie has invited me to Thanksgiving with her family up in New Market. I could not be more excited.
Hope your holiday is filled with joy!
