Thanksgiving is a holiday we almost always celebrate with our college friends and their families. We all get together and enjoy spending time with each other and eating amazing food. This year we are all gathering here and I am SO EXCITED. I love cooking for people I love and making my house beautiful for the season. Because it is one of my favorite holidays, making it extra special is really important to me. I love Thanksgiving ideas that are pretty and creative and even fun.
