BE THERE

Happy Thanksgiving to youuuu! I hope you're settling in for a glorious day of eating with your fam.

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with the holidays. There's so much anticipation and expectation - I can't wait to play out the perfect vision of Thanksgiving I have in my head... but then it never goes down the way I think it will. The sisters are fighting or I burn the rolls (gah, the rolls! Easiest job ever)... and then the day is over in a flash.

I've learned over the years not to put so much pressure on the holidays. I can never predict how the day will go. The best thing I can do is just be there. Be a part of the conversation, the cooking, the wine-drinking (no prob); just be mindful of each moment. Take it in. Cuz it does fly by... best to just hang on for the ride and be fully present with my family, enjoying those magical fleeting moments. So I guess that means no instagram distractions, eh? Oh ok. Well maybe just one of pie...

Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
