autumn in the city: giving thanks
Every year, Chris’s family goes to the Thanksgiving Day Parade in the city. Two years ago, they invited me along for my first time, and it’s become one of my favorite traditions. I think I like it more than they do. This year it was cold but sunny, and packed. We could barely see anything, so we left pretty quickly. Still, the energy of the city and Thanksgiving itself makes it my favorite holiday. It’s such a beautiful thing – an entire day dedicated to nothing but being grateful. No giving, no receiving, no expectations, just a day with family.
I absolutely love Thanksgiving.
Two of the boys in my life I’m most thankful for: my brother (looking goofy) and Chris, in my aunt’s front hall on Thanksgiving.
Sorry for the belated blog post – life is hectic when you’re a senior in high school trying to balance college apps, work, calculus, getting proper amounts of sleep, and spending time with the people you love. Blogging tends to fall by the wayside. But – inspired by Karly - I think I’m going to try and start a weekly feature such as a “Things I Love Thursday.” We’ll see, we’ll see!
