With the first day of Fall being last week I can't help but get in the mood. I love Autumn. Everything is so pretty and the air is so crisp. This year I want to get into the season by decorating my apartment. I have never decorated for a season/holiday before - that's always been my moms fort-ay. I don't even know where to begin. I just keep getting all these images in my mind but I know my version won't quite look the same. I feel like my decorations won't make a large enough impact to even notice that I've decorated for the season. I am going to go shopping tomorrow to pick up a few things to start my decorating. In the mean time, I have created an inspiration board of beautiful Autumn decorations and ideas.
I love Thanksgiving. I love the family get together, the season, and the giant turkey dinner! The dinner is probably my favorite part. This year I will be missing Thanksgiving with my family because I have to work the weekend shift at emerge :( I am super sad about this! I don't know what I am going to do. Anthony said he would stay behind with me so I wouldn't be alone. His mom told him that she would come to Hamilton to spend Thanksgiving with his family, so he lucked out. Obviously I would be able to attend their family celebration but chances are that I'll miss that as well because I work late. Just to keep myself positive and too not get too bummed out I am thinking about cooking something to contribute to his family dinner - even though I most likely won't attend, I just don't know what to make yet. Any ideas on a good Thanksgiving dish or dessert that is fairly simple for a beginner like me?
