I used to know nothing of Thanksgiving, but after living in New York, I have learned to love this holiday.

No wonder this is one of America’s favorite holidays. It isn’t really a commercial holiday (if we don’t count the pounds of turkey sold during this looooong weekend), it’s just an opportunity to pause, to sit around the table and enjoy a good meal with people we care about (usually family) and take turns expressing what we’re thankful for.

It’s very beautiful.

Well, it is also known to be the holiday where you’re supposed to eat like crazy, so I thought a small photo of the sublime Caroline feasting on fries before my very eyes (I dropped my tea to take this picture, here !) would be the perfect anti-guilt treat.

With that, I give you huge hugs. And thank you for being with me every day. I cannot say it enough.
