I really love this time of year. I love the food, the holiday music, the traditions, etc. But really, I just love seeing my family. B and I swap Thanksgivings, spending pretty much every other holiday with my family, and this was one of the years we spent in New York so I got to see my family and friends.
A few highlights from my Thanksgiving:
A few homemade meals (I still love my mom’s cooking):
A scenic train ride into New York City:
Walking around the city with B and then dinner with one of my bffs, Jane:
Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge with B:
Sushi with my parents:
A surprise day-before-Thanksgiving Noreaster – so pretty! (it had been 70 in the city the day before!)
A Thanksgiving morning 5k and a too brief reunion with my other bff, Melgar:
Thanksgiving dinner with family
Post-Thanksgiving Chinese (What does this fortune even mean?!)
B’s family’s post-Thanksgiving celebration – annual bowling tournament
And made it back to Cleveland just in time to catch the end of Winterfest and the lighting of downtown!
Okay, off to listen to some Christmas tunes (finally!!!!!) and get into the holiday spirit. Only a few weeks until Christmas!
Some questions for you:
- Did you do a Turkey Trot?
- How do you spend Thanksgiving? What’s a fun tradition you have?
- Do you wait until after Thanksgiving to listen to holiday tunes?
