what are you grateful for?
unconventional day, but one that always includes feasting and family. This year, my sweetie and I were on our own for the first time in our empty nest, and we decided to have a simple and romantic Thanksgiving. We had a long walk on the beach and watched the blustery, changing October sky. We gathered oysters as the tide came in, took them home in a bucket, and prepared them simply with garlic, butter, fresh herbs (from my garden), and breadcrumbs, just a few minutes under the broiler. We popped a bottle of champagne and gave thanks for love and simplicity, for our beautiful island and for the bounty of the sea.
Wishing you a day of love, gratitude, and abundance, whatever shape that takes for you. Remember, it's not always a big family and a turkey. There are so many ways to celebrate the bounty and beauty of life, and so much to be grateful for. I would love to hear about your day of gratitude. What and how do you celebrate? What are you grateful for this year?
