A Return to Thanksgiving.




















This is the first year i've been in the with family and in the United States for Thanksgiving in three years. As my favorite holiday of the year, it's been a bit rough having to explain Thanksgiving to people in London, trying to explain the history, trying to explain why you need so many different vegetable sides. But the hardest thing of all was not having my mom by my side to ask advice and have someone else to share the cooking with. This year was a return to the norm, and a return to Thanksgiving with family and friends, and my was it wonderful.

Birthday Cakes & Downed Trees.








This year's birthday came at the same time that Sandy did. This meant a very quiet day at home spent making a cake, and having it with champagne and family. But it also meant spending the day walking around outside surveying all the trees that had fallen down. It's strange to look out your bedroom window and see the sky when you're used to seeing a big, old pine tree.
