Thanksgiving

I am a procrastinator. You aren't surprised. I am leaving for a long weekend tonight straight from work and I didn't start packing until 10pm last night. I am running on 5 hours of sleep (I need a solid nine to be totally functional) so let's hope that I am able to sleep on my flight tonight. Fingers crossed.

I'm leaving tonight for a Parisian adventure with Molly. Back in July she was invited to a wedding in Paris and I offered (practically begged) to go along as her travel buddy. And now it's happening. I am so excited to travel with the bff and I can't wait to stuff my face with delicious food and wine.


But I'll be honest with you, I'm sad to be missing out on my favorite holiday with my family. Christmas is great and all, but Thanksgiving has always been my favorite day of the year. The smells in the kitchen, the fire in the fireplace, being with my family, it's always so, so good. My family is a food-centric family. It's how we show love. Last year I wasn't able to make it to my family's gathering because of work, so to miss another year of spending time with my family is hard.

So to my family, Happy Thanksgiving and eat lots of great food for me! I will miss you!

Paris awaits.
