“Do you want to go see Santa tonight,” I asked her. Greeted with eyes of wonder, “Yes!” she cheered. “Let’s go see him so I can place my order.” Not exactly the thought-process I was thinking, but makes sense in the eyes of a 5-year-old who has seen Santa for the past few years with the sole purpose to ask him for what she wants for Christmas. “Honey, it’s not Burger King,” my husband chimed in.

When I was little, my mom taught me the importance of paying it forward to other children who didn’t have gifts under their tree like I did.

Thanksgiving. It’s one of the best traditional American holidays, but also one of the most stressful. Seven years ago, I stuffed my first turkey and cooked it in one of those oven bags. It was a labor of love, a real labor of love. Fifteen people showed up. It resulted in a bit of a family feud (turkey vs. ham?), an insane amount of dirty dishes, and couches full of post-dinner nappers. It was a success. And now we host Thanksgiving every year.
