We have so much to be thankful for this year. Healthy, thriving kids. Family and friends who support and care for us. We are so blessed! And every year, I look forward to going around the table at Thanksgiving and sharing what we are thankful for over a delicious meal. I know sometimes Thanksgiving dinner can be a lot of work. But it’s so worth it to gather everyone together to share your gratitude and love. To help take some of the stress off hosting Thanksgiving, I’ve created this Thanksgiving Gathering Guide. With this guide, I’ll help you set the scene, create some fun memories, and of course, serve up some festive eats. Not hosting? I’ve got you covered with hostess gifts!
