    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! It’s probably my favorite American holiday, too.

    happy thanksgiving, i think we should all celebrate on this day when it’s harvest time. despite the fun of having my birthday be on thanksgiving every seven years–and emily, i remember when i first saw her painting and was swept away!
