Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it revolves around food and wine and being cozy and grateful and with the people you love. For the past two years, Brandon and I have spent the holiday hunkered down together at home, eating tons of carbs and watching "Tower Heist," a fairly bad movie that I love, in which the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade plays a pivotal role. This year it was 65 degrees and balmy here, so we welcomed the day with mimosas and then took Maisy on a long leisurely walk.

Someone got poop on her foot and had to have it washed off when we got home, which was very undignified for everyone.

I also cooked a lot - mashed potatoes, baked praline sweet potatoes, buttermilk cornbread, deep-dish apple pie - but I don't do food photography (everything looks disgusting no matter how hard I try), so you'll just have to trust me on that one.
