I did it! I made all of the dishes I set out to make for my first Vegan Thanksgiving.
Not going to lie, my stuffing kicked the other stuffing’s ass. (sorry mom)
But really, it was impressive.
However, we may have gone a little overboard with the amount of food, and I believe I will be eating thanksgiving all week-long… which can get a little repetitive.
So, this is a short and sweet post. But here is what I am thankful for.
1) My family– they rearranged Thanksgiving for me. They play Bananagrams and Mad Gab AND they watch elf while eating candy canes… my family is the most bitchin’ family around.
2) My ability to let things go. And what that means for the future me. Forgiving and apologizing has literally made blue birds land on my shoulders, and sometimes I break out into a spontaneous grin. It is a beautiful thing.
3) My drive and ambition to achieve a plethora of different goals. These goals include: climbing a mountain (next summer!), running a marathon (next fall!), complete a triathlon (next spring!), going back to grad school (I think I figured out what I actually want to do– it might take me a billion years.. whatever), become a yoga instructor, meditate on a regular basis, make a quilt… the list goes on and on.
All BIG goals. (especially the quilt– I get distracted)
What can I say? I’m a dreamer.
