Thanksgiving is a beautiful time of year. The weather is starting to cool down (well, as cool as it gets in Okinawa!) and we are filled with some of my favorite fall foods. It's very unfortunate then that turkey day seems to be skipped these days. It seems that the stores go straight from halloween to christmas decor, skipping such a wonderful holiday over. Thanksgiving has become a day for people to stuff their faces with unhealthy, fat and carb loaded foods to the point of stretchy pants! Not for us. As much as we do enjoy our healthier alternative on the thanksgiving feast, there is so much more to this holiday. It's an important holiday to me because it's a time for us to reflect on just how lucky we are to be living the life we've been given. Instead of worrying about the calorie rich foods that we could consume this thanksgiving, I instead chose to focus on the true meaning of thanksgiving- giving thanks!
Daddy: I'm thankful for grilled turkey, friends, and my beautiful family on this holiday.
