Thanksgiving Goodness

Eliot and I realized last night that this is our 4th Thanksgiving together, and in the past 4 years we've celebrated it in 4 different countries and on 3 different continents! Although it is an American holiday, he seems to love celebrating it just as much as the rest of us. This year we were really lucky to also be able to celebrate it with my parents who are in South Africa visiting. We didn't have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner (much too hot now in SA to roast a turkey, + we didn't want to spend a whole day of my parent's holiday cooking), but we haven't actually had any "traditional" Thanksgiving dinners for the past 4 years. So I guess we kind of kept up with our own tradition in that sense.

So..... This year I'm thankful for:

Travel! And being able to do so much of it with the person I love the most.

Here's rundown of our past 4 Thanksgivings.

~2006: Cashew Chicken feast on Similan Island #4 in Thailand~

~2007: Snowboarding at Okemo in Vermont~

~2008: Roast Chicken Dinner in Fuyang China with our ex-pat friends~

~2009: Spaghetti feast in Cape Town South Africa~

Can't wait to see what the years ahead bring us, maybe next year we'll do something new and spend it in the states with a proper turkey! Happy Holidays everyone :o)
