Thank you so much to Valerie for sharing this! I saw it and HAD to share it too. Mostly because I hope my husband sees this :)
This will be my 3rd Thanksgiving in a row away from my mom and brother. Instead of being really upset about it, I've learned to be extra thankful for Jared around the holidays. Our little family is enough to make the holidays special and for that, I'm grateful.
Another thing I'm grateful for is the little ohana we have here. It's been hard to make friends here, but the few that we have made mean so much to us. We are hosting our very first Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving :)) tomorrow and while I'm REALLY excited, I know myself and I always stress myself out when I'm the host. I always want everything to be perfect. Of course, it never ends up that way but I kind of like imperfect memories better. They're perfect.. if that makes any sense at all! Anyway, I hope my husband has the wine handy!
