Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. For years we have hosted. I love getting up when it is dark and the temperature is in the single digits. I don’t love the raw turkey and stuffing the rib cage with bread and veggies but I prepare it for those I love so I suck it up and bind that bird.

My mom gave us the shelves that were my grandmother’s and she painted them a few months back while on a visit from Red Lodge.
