It’s thanksgiving here in the U.S. A holiday that has some pretty upsetting historical significance, but has morphed into a special day spent with family and friends, giving thanks.
I believe that it is so important to remember our history and to honor the people we treated so horrifically. It is also important to forgive ourselves and to spend the day full of love and gratefulness.
That being said, I hope you had a beautiful day with your loved ones (whether you celebrate american holidays or not).
I spent today cooking a yummy meat free thanksgiving meal with my partner Andrew and our beautiful pets, Kiley and Ming. I intentionally chose to have a slowed down thanksgiving with just us for a few reasons. First, neither of us eat meat so it’s nice not to have to worry about that during the meal. Second, we know that Christmas will be very busy with travel, so it is nice to be able to cook, eat, and relax on this day.
