When your Mema tells you she wants lasagna for thanksgiving, you accommodate. I make a pretty mean lasagna, and I’m sure Mema favors it being that it’s her recipe that she has handed down to me. Whenever I get a chance to make it for my family it makes me happy, knowing that I can help give them a tasty meal. On this occasion it is even more of a reminder of how thankful I am to have my family in my life, their unconditional support, and their compliments on my lasagna 🙂
A few weeks ago was the first time I celebrated Friendsgiving with my friends. We stayed a weekend in Deep Creek where a gigantic thanksgiving meal was created with every perfect accompaniment to the two turkeys (yes two) we had. Although I didn’t get to enjoy most of the meal due to a coconut vodka overdose I was recovering from as a result of the night before, it was the most impressive thanksgiving feast I’ve been a part of. How can I not be thankful for a group of friends who can celebrate each other’s friendship together by toasting and roasting?
Whatever the meal looks like, slightly untraditional or like a page out of Martha Stewart Living, it’s about the people you are with and the wonderful things you can be thankful for in your life. As I’m working on my arts and crafts business, I hope to bring many new friends into my life along the way. If you’re reading this, I’m thankful for your interest in my blog or arts and crafts. As a token of my appreciation, you can get $5 off in the Pop Craft Exchange Etsy shop, just use code FRIENDSGIVING, good through the end of the year. Happy Thanksgiving!
