What you GIVE is what you GET

What you GIVE is what you GET

 Yes, it’s that time of the year, the time where we get caught up in family celebrations, friends, good food, drinks, and lots of cheer. But it’s also that time of year where it’s very easy to get wrapped up (no pun intended) in the stress and busy-ness of it all.

 

 

 

I love that Thanksgiving is right before Christmas and Hanukkah because it’s the perfect mental prep for the more stressful holidays. Unfortunately, the holidays tend to focus a lot on gift giving and spreading ourselves too thin, so Thanksgiving is a time to just be together enjoying each others company and appreciating everything we have.

 

  

 

I also love that it’s centered around a meal made of delicious food. I try really hard to make this meal full of yummy food that nourishes our bodies. Food has brought people together for years and there is something about making food and sharing it with the people you love that feels good deep down in your soul.

 

 

 

I also make the day about honoring the people in my life. Telling family and friends how much they truly mean to me and appreciating them is my intention during the day and it feels fantastic. I find that the more love I give the more love I feel.

 

 

 

I hope your Thanksgiving holiday is full of love and gratitude, I’m sending you some as well.

Till Next Week,

What an amazing holiday Thanksgiving is! It’s one of my favorites, because it’s all about family, being together and most importantly eating. I love to make a big deal out of Thanksgiving. I think the more effort you put into the planning, the more everyone feels the love. I want my family to feel how thankful I am for them, and this is more about the time I put into this day and not the money I spend.

I know a lot of people think in order to have a beautifully decorated table you need to have all the trimming and spend a ton of money, I am not one of those people. One of my best tips for setting a beautiful table is to mix-n-match all my dinnerware. I love collecting vintage glasses and plates, even silverware, and giving everyone their very own place setting. The more different the better.

 

This amount of thought really shows everyone that I care more than some paper plates and plastic silverware ever will. Plus you’re being so much better to the environment without all that waste.

Now about what we put on those plates. My family is Greek and we love our traditional dishes. We serve Spanakopita (my grandmother always made it) and Kourabiedes, a Greek butter cookie, traditionally a Christmas favorite but we love them so much we break them out at Thanksgiving. Here’s to making this year’s Thanksgiving the most thoughtful yet.

Thankfully,
