Last year, Justin and I spent our Thanksgiving in the bed with a stomach flu.
It was awful.
We couldn't even think about turkey and all the fixins without making a run for the bathroom.
This year, Lord willing, will be a different story.
Justin has to work on Thanksgiving Day, so we will be staying in NYC.
Here's how we are going to celebrate...
Skype with my family in Alabama and maybe some friends, too.
Turn on some tunes, pour a glass of wine and get in the kitchen with my man and cook cook cook.
Celebrate with gracious friends with a big ole meal on Friday.
Make a classic southern dish for J's northern coworkers.
Go to the parade. And maybe even watch the process.
And then say hello to one of The Most Wonderful Times of the Year.
How are you celebrating? Are you traveling? Are you staying put?
I will miss being with my family, but being in NYC on Thanksgiving?
It's kind of it's own form of magic and we are determined to celebrate every minute.
