happy thanksgiving!

What I'm thankful for this year:

Family. It was so fun seeing everyone at Christopher and Emily's wedding. Lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins made the trip, including some that I haven't seen for quite a while! Also, not just anyone could pull off a teal-and-orange-themed wedding, but these two nailed it!

In-laws. Yes, they could be included above with "family", but they deserve a special mention. My awesome in-laws know how to make a long drive to the East Coast worthwhile: a delicious turkey dinner (followed by my yummy dairy-free pumpkin pie), an overnight trip to the Big Apple to see "Cabaret" starring Emma Stone and Alan Cumming, and a walking tour through Chelsea, the Village, and the Meatpacking District led by my very own brother in law. Colleen isn't in the photo because she was too busy attending a fancy wedding, but we did get to spend Thanksgiving day with her.

Friends. Ben and Jen (finally) tied the knot in November; it was super fun and fancy. Kathy, Jason, Jen, Joe, Dan and I attended our third wedding together! This shindig seriously set the bar for wedding desserts. Not only was the cake delicious, but each slice was served on a big plate with a fruit garnish and a generous dollop of cream sauce. So good. Not necessarily cider donuts good, but still so good.
