I think I might start these Sunday Things posts more often as a way to let you, my readers, into my every day life, while still making it meaningful & fun.
This is the time of the year when we just want to relax, celebrate the holidays, eat delicious food, and enjoy life. Last night was the first Friendsgiving of the season, it was everything a Friendsgiving should be...delicious, cozy, and filled with great people. I was so happy when my work bestie, Jill, said she'd be hosting a Friendsgiving this year. I hosted one last year, and while it was the best night ever, it's so much work!!!
When you have great people in your life, it's important to celebrate that gift. What better way to celebrate such awesomeness than with incredible Cranberry Sangria made with brandy?!? Bravo Jill, it was delish.
Dinner was a perfect mixture of everyone's favorite things: turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, mac & cheese...and homemade cranberry sauce and green beans in a red wine shallot sauce made by yours truly!!
Friendsgiving ended at the fire pit, which was perfect on a chilly 35 degree night. Jill & her husband hosted the perfect evening, I'm so lucky to have such great friends...with a great house. ;)
This is the time of the year we should all be appreciative of what we have. I'm trying to be mindful and in tune with that a little bit more each day. It's not always easy, and we all go through trying times, but it's so important to recognize our gifts in life. Surround yourself with people who have the same values and spread the same love as you, & you'll always be A-OK. It's pretty much foolproof!
