A Northwest Workshop Thanksgiving

Writing a post about Thanksgiving, a time for people to come together, is really difficult the day after the US presidential election. My heart is heavy, not because my political party lost, but because of the tradition we have in this country to hate each other. 

It feels wrong to try and polish this post into something glittery, so instead I just want to start feeling thankful for the relationships I have in my life. The making of this meal was fun. Pure fun. Something that's hard to come by now that I'm, and have been for awhile, a full grown adult. 

In the next couple of weeks I'll be posting the recipes shown in this spread. I hope they give you some ideas of what you would want to bring to the table, whether it's for a large gathering or a celebration for one. 

For the holidays, I hope you can do whatever you want to do. That means spending time with the people you want to, and not seeing the ones you don't. That means eating whatever food you want to, and binging on whatever piece of entertainment that gives you joy. 

My friend, I wish you lots of laughter, light, and empathy during this holiday season.
