This year was a much more social affair. Cody and I were invited to multiple Thanksgivings! We spent the earlier part of the day with two of our good friends (parents of one of my students) and their families. It was such a nice time and very family-oriented. We ate food, played games (hide-and-seek with the little ones), talked, laughed, and generally had a beautiful time. Then in the evening we headed to another friends home. This event was dubbed "Friendsgiving" and it was a bunch of our other child-less friends. There was more food, more laughter, and adult beverages. Friendsgiving was much more informal and imitated what I am sure lots of twenty-somethings do for Thanksgiving…drink with friends (haha). Both parties were great! I wish I had pictures from the day but I was too consumed with having an amazing time. Someone else did manage to snap a picture of Cody and I at Friendsgiving. It's a silly picture, but I still like it :)
Holidays can be tough without family. But, by creating a loving and close-knit group of friends we have been able to make the most of it. Besides, this is what our twenties are about, right? Adventure, friends, over-induldging, seeing the world, and learning about ourselves :) Happy Thanksgiving!
