Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because of its simplicity. Food, friends, good conversation and most importantly family.

We have started the unofficial beginning to "the holiday season" and our lives are about to become very busy for the next month or so. I'm thankful that for one day we can give thanks for the people who matter most in our lives, not with gifts and material things, but with the simple act of spending time together.

I'm also very thankful to have my other family...the family that I talk to everyday, you. Happy Thanksgiving.
