While admittedly I am a summer girl at heart, there are some things about this time of year that make the chill and gloom worthwhile- brilliant foliage, pumpkin everything, and the best.. Thanksgiving! It is one of my favorite holidays, and I think it is because it is less about the "stuff" and more about bringing people together. Too often Thanksgiving can get lost in the mad dash towards Christmas, but I like the idea of slowing down, savoring, and sharing time with those close to you. It is also the last chance to show off your autumn wares before there is a christmas invasion of glitter and lights.
