Ahhh Thanksgiving. It is by far my favorite holiday because I love Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole – and then of course apple pie.
Beyond the food, I love that there’s a new rush in the air to think about what we’re thankful for and then also what we want to give to others for Christmas and then goals we want to set for ourselves for the next year. Thanksgiving begins the season of joy and reflection.
One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is Friendsgiving. It allows us to appreciate our friends and also learn how to, at the very least make a side dish.
This year, I had Thanksgiving at the Dollhouse with two other Chicago bloggers from Once Upon a Dollhouse and their friends and family.
We had the whole meal catered by amazing restaurants like Maggiano’s – yes I put spaghetti and meatballs on my Thanksgiving plate.
Besides learning that red wine or champagne are really the only appropriate beverages to complement Thanksgiving dinner, it was fun to meet other people’s best friends and talk about new beauty trends like tattooing your eyebrows, or swapping travel adventures to Thailand and Paris.
