happy thanksGIFing !

Happy Thanksgiving!! To my US readers in particular, but honestly -- to everybody, wishing you a wonderful late November week full of thankfulness (and good food!) <3


These last few years of holiday seasons have been.... tumultuous, to say the least. 


And actually, this summer -- especially with the emergence of vaccinations etc -- it feels like society is very deliberately trying to put covid and the whole pandemic situation firmly behind us. 


And, honestly? I'm HERE for that. Like, obvi the pandemic *is not* over, even as it shifts closer and closer to the (apparently more desirable?) 'endemic' classification. And, at least here in Baltimore, we're still on somewhat strict protocols. 


But ya know.... My family and I are vaxxed and mostly boosted -- even the kiddos now too omg!! And we are ready to be together <3 


So this holiday, at least for me and my family ---- which you may recall is enormous with many different branches, all of whom I want to see and spend time with ---- actually marks the first proper return to something like "normalcy" for us. 


And ooooooh buddy, we are READY!


Obviously every individual community and family may or may not be in a different place right now --- but I hope you're looking forward to a good meal too, at the very least. 


Resuming normal traditions for me means that I get *two omg* Thanksgiving meals in *one* day (omg). 


And I do mean two haha --- there will be NO saving myself from one to the next. We go hard here, mkay? 


So. If you need me, I'll probably be either seated at some ridiculously opulent spread --- or trying to rest up between meals haha. Wishing you all a similarly indulgent return to this wonderful holiday intended to bring everybody together in a spirit of gratitude!
