The days before Thanksgiving are some of my favorite days, because it feels like the wind up to the holiday season. Living in Asia, we don’t have tinsel and pumpkin-spice-flavored-everything shoved in our faces since August, so it actually is really fun to get in the mood. Little things like making hot chocolate (and turning up the air conditioning) and watching Elf help us with the illusion of coziness. Tiff has been hosting friends from out of town and brushing up on her super human hosting skills. She’s even making stuffing waffles today. STUFFING WAFFLES. Cait is in design mode and has decorated her house with meters of fabric and colored pencil shavings. She will be taking a break today to focus on mashed potatoes. Happy Thanksgiving week!
