Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't have many Thanksgiving memories because there is no such thing as Thanksgiving in Japan or Taiwan. My first Thanksgiving was 10 years ago when I just got to the states. At that time, my cousin Mimi still lived in LA, so she and her Korean husband, her son, me, and a friend of mine from Mexico. All 5 of us, no Americans, tried to have an American holiday. Mimi and her husband successfully cooked a turkey and we had a wonderful time. This is my first Thanksgiving memory.

I didn't have a real American Thanksgiving until I married J, it was 4 years ago. Now we either celebrate Thanksgiving in Iowa with J's family, or we invite J's mom to come to NY and celebrate it here. We kinda started a new tradition to celebrate Thanksgiving with our used-to-be-downstairs-neighbors and now good friends Martin and Shawn as well. So far we've had two Thanksgivings with them and we are going to have the 3rd tomorrow at their new place in upstate NY. It might snow there, yea!

Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving with safe travels. I’m already in the Christmas spirit, so get ready!
