I'm thinking about traditions tonight.
Usually my family and I are on a road trip this week making our way back home to Texas to see family and friends and attend a family reunion.

This year we decided to stay home in GA to finish unpacking our new home, set up some organizational systems that work and rest. Geez grown up decisions are hard.
We have been getting lots of stuff done including cleaning out the garage and making a dent in the boxes. Not as much as I hoped. Of course since I was raised on Samantha and I dream of Genie I think I tend to have some magical thinking about how long cleaning and organizing truly takes :)

I realized the last day or two I've been a bit melancholy. I'm missing our usual traditions associated with our road trip and the people we see.

I will miss our traditional Canasta card game where Nanny usually wins. I need to find two packs of cards so we can play at least one or two games this break.
After Nanny's we drive off to see more friends, Joe's family and end up at a family reunion celebrating my mother line.
I could go on about more traditions that include animal noises, tamales and polar plunges but I think I'll stop for now and ask about your traditions.

What are your favorite traditions around Thanksgiving?
Do you recreate traditions when you are separated from family?
Wrapping you around with infinite love and warmth,
