Happy Thanksgiving! I hope this post finds you all well, and in good spirits. Yesterday I celebrated my first major holiday away from my family, and to be honest it was a bit weird. I did miss having everyone around the table and someone else cooking the turkey, but I made due. I didn't miss the family drama that always ends up coming up around Thanksgiving which was a healthy change. But I cooked all the food for the meal, and might I say I cook a good turkey, and an alright job carving.
But I got all of my new friends around a table to share in a tradition from home, and for many of them it was the first time that they celebrated the holiday. I told them about the tradition and why we celebrate it, and gave thanks for everything that got me here this year. I think this year more than any other I found that I am thankful for everyone back home that have helped me get to this point and that they will be in my corner no matter what. I am also thankful of the new found friends here and what other adventures lie in store for me.
I miss you all back home and I'll be home before you know it, but I'm going to enjoy every minute that I have here. But for the blog I will be writing about a few past events over the next few days that I haven't been able to talk you all about. But until then keep eating turkey and drinking beer and enjoy the days off before the madness of the holiday season kicks in.
