Are you excited for the holidays yet? With all of the craziness and uncertainty in my life lately, it has taken me longer than usual to get into the holiday spirit. I’m also not going home for Thanksgiving, so it will be a different kind of holiday this year. I’ve really been trying to make an effort to make things special, though, and it’s definitely helping me feel a bit more festive. This weekend we’re squeezing in as many NYC holiday activities as possible: the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, department store windows, Union Square holiday market, and maybe ice skating in Bryant Park. I’m also making a pie crust from scratch for the first time, which should be memorable if nothing else (and will not look as good as the awesome pies above).
Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing holiday with lots of good food, friends, and family. And safe travels to any of you hitting the road this weekend!
