Not hosting Thanksgiving this year means minimal leftovers… It also meant that we didn’t have to stress in the kitchen. But I think I would still take the weeks worth of work to celebrate at our home and cook for all our friends and family. So next year, it’s back on. We’re taking our Thanksgiving […]
