Go Play In The Leaves

I love Thanksgiving.

I love that it's a holiday all about food, friends, and family. There's not a ton of extra stuff that goes along with it (like cookie exchanges and mall Santas and all the other fun, yet stress-inducing, calendar things that come along with Christmas.)

I love that it marks the beginning of Advent. The beginning of the Christmas season. The beginning of longing, of hoping, of waiting.

I love leaves and apple cider and going home to see my family and I love mashed potatoes and pecan pie and, honestly, I love any excuse for a long-weekend.
 So, Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Go play in the leaves your dad raked and then beg your mom for hot cider.
Or, just watch Netflix on your parents couch all weekend.

Both are equally amazing pursuits.
