I readily admit to hating all of the artificially-flavored pumpkin crap that assaults my senses before, during, and after Thanksgiving. I also roll my eyes at some of the “I’m thankful for…” posts on Facebook (not yours, of course). But, honestly, I love the Thanksgiving holiday itself. LOVE. IT. It is—by far—my favorite holiday. I get to sit around with people that I adore (and some other people too), eat delicious food, and drink too much wine. (And then drink some more wine.) All of this while being thankful for loved ones, food, and wine. I mean, really, what’s not to love about this holiday?
