A day to give thanks wherever you are

Thanksgiving
I’ll come straight out and say it: this post has no recipes. But I couldn’t just sit aside and watch Thanksgiving come and go without taking a minute to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving. I hope your day, wherever you are, is full of family and friends, love and laughter and delicious home made food.

Thanksgiving may be a predominantly North American holiday, but what it stands for is something that people all over the world should celebrate. And although for many of us food is the way we show our love for our friends and family, Thanksgiving isn’t just about turkey and stuffing. It’s about taking a step back and realizing how lucky we really are.

So take a day out of your life to appreciate what you have, who you love and who loves you. Sit around the table with those you hold dear and just be thankful for all the wonderful events and people that make up your life.

Happy Thanksgiving!
