Its a beautiful Thanksgiving morning in Los Angeles. I kept to tradition and got up to make cinnamon rolls and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! To me Thanksgiving is the real kick off to the holiday season. Although I couldn't hold back playing the Christmas station last weekend when it was raining here in LA. Although I work in the fashion industry, I'd rather not think about black Friday and non stop shopping and instead thing about what I'm thankful for and how I can give back this holiday season. Last year my mom and I made stockings packed with essentials that were sent over to the troops. Still deciding what project we'll take on this year. But today I'm thankful for my loving family that has supported me through all my highs and lows, amazing friends that make me laugh, and my fabulous boyfriend who makes me smile every day. Oh and my job! Thank God I have a job! It's rough out there!
Last night I slaved away after work making black bottom banana cream pie and pumpkin cheesecake for our Thanksgiving dessert. I've been looking forward to all the delicious food today. Traditional Thanksgiving dinner is by far one of my favorites. My plate always has a little bit of everything, but usually stuffing a sweet potatoes take over most of it. I save the turkey for leftover turkey sandwiches!
Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?
