Last thanksgiving was a little out of the norm because it was the first time I wasn't at my grandparent's house in New Hampshire with my family. I always loved seeing all the autumn (and I guess, sometimes winter) scenery as we drove up and then smelling their wood burning fire while hanging out enjoying each other's company. It was always so relaxing and I never had to do much except sleep in and eat (and eat and eat and eat) so last year was a little more difficult. The four of us had our own thanksgiving dinner and boy did it make me appreciate what my grandma and mom do every year! It was a very delicious meal, but the 4 of us cooked enough food for about 20 people so by the time we had finished eating I was ready for a 24 hour nap.
This year we'll be in Austin again, but my sister is moving to Houston so she'll be coming too! I'm planning on having some friends over that day, but I want to have more fun with it and put my designer/creative brain to good use.
