Non-Traditional Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving holiday. Although my post is a bit late, I am reminded of sooo many things to be thankful for:
-life & health
-full-time job
-God's grace

This year, I decided to spend thanksgiving a bit differently. My family in the area was gone and I didn't really feel like sharing Thanksgiving with someone else's family (it would just make me miss my family in Ga.). NOTE TO SELF: THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I SPEND THANKSGIVING IN VA. AWAY FROM MY GA. FAMILY. 

I digress. 

Luckily I was able to eat at a restaurant with a friend and celebrate the holiday our way. Initially I was going to have their traditional turkey/ham dinner but I decided on something different. Everyday is a day of Thanksgiving so I didn't have to have a meal that symbolized the tradition. Instead I had quite the opposite, burger and fries (with a blood orange sangria).

I can't lie, I was really really missing the dressing and a piece of good ole sweet potato pie. But honestly this meal hit the spot and filled me up.How did you all spend your holiday and what was your favorite part of dinner?

My favorite part of Thanksgiving was the nap that followed the meal :)There definitely are a lot of things to be thankful for this year.

Blood Orange Sangria...sounds Amazing!!

I spent my Thanksgiving morning at church worshiping my God for his goodness unto me! I then, traveled to Lithonia to spend Thanksgiving with my family since they didn't make it to Albany-insert a sad face. The best part of my Thanksgiving day was having my brother (yes, you read it correctly lol) present for dinner!! This was special to ALL of us because this was the first time he joined us in years.

I'm glad your Thanksgiving was enjoyed, in spite of not having family around.
