Happy Thanksgiving!

i hope you’re having a wonderful holiday weekend!

we’re in Rhode Island for the weekend and the weather is just stunning.  we are going to walk down to the beach soon to smell some salty air and watch the waves crash on the rocks…  and we wont even need coats!

every year my mother and i cook Thanksgiving dinner for my whole family.  Adam helps by chopping and prepping, my father makes a cheesecake and everyone else shows up with some sort of appetizer and healthy appetites!
