Personally, I love the traditional Thanksgiving holiday, but for my wife and I, there’s no point in packing a gigantic meal with just the two of us this year. We’ll continue to make our favorite side dishes like relish and green bean casserole, but we won’t be making a turkey this year. We thought of the ham, which we have done in the past, but we’re both very keen on the side dishes.
This week I saw something on social media talking about making brisket the new official Thanksgiving meat, that’s something I would fully support!
Thanksgiving is about people, not food
As I continue to age, it occurs to me again and again that it’s not about the food, it’s about the people you’re enjoying a meal with. You will create memories celebrating a wonderful holiday with your loved ones, that’s really all.
Take lots of photos this Thanksgiving
If you spend time with cousins or grandparents that you don’t see very often, I encourage you to take more pictures with them this Thanksgiving. You will never be disappointed that you took a photo with family members. Just remember you can’t get this time back, so enjoy every second of it now. Happy Thanksgiving!
