Here I am nested away in Italy for another Thanksgiving.
It’s just like any other day, here.
There’s not hustle and bustle days before, there’s no giant cooler full of turkeys on sale, nor is there Stove Top Stuffing stacked high on the grocery store end-cap.
In fact, we’ve never even had a traditional thanksgiving meal since moving to Italy almost six years ago (we have had Mexican food more than once, though, so there is that…).
But let’s be honest…
Thanksgiving isn’t about the traditions.
It’s about being thankful.
It’s about taking a moment–a day, even–and reflecting on what we have to be thankful for…which is an awful lot.
