Like many, Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of year! Not only do we get wear cozy sweaters and eat the most delicious food, but we also get to spend extra time with family and friends. My husband and I were stationed in Europe for 4 years and weren’t able to be with our families on the holidays. I remember feeling homesick and sad at times, but we made the best of it and were thankful to have made close friends to celebrate with.
We moved back to the U.S. last year and finally got to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with family. It was amazing!! And honestly it is something we took for granted.
This year, my husband and I will be hosting Thanksgiving at our house for his family. Excited is an understatement! So excited that I almost forgot we needed to buy a turkey.
