This photo was taken two years ago. We were living in Brazil, celebrating Thanksgiving with our French friends. Talk about being international! This was the first time we ever hosted Thanksgiving, so I was a little nervous about making everything. For several of our friends it was their first taste of an American Thanksgiving, so I wanted to get everything right! It was even more of a challenge because a lot of ingredients were hard to find in our little rural town of Penedo, so I ended up making everything from scratch, from turkey stuffing to steaming pumpkin for the pie and making all the pie crusts. It was a very rewarding experience though; made me contemplate how easy our lives have become with pre-made, ready to bake everything.
In Brazil, in November, it’s the end of spring, heading into summer, so we set the table up outside by the pool. Celebrating Thanksgiving in the Tropics was a little odd; to be poolside for a typically autumn holiday was disorienting, but it was still great fun. I know I made my family jealous swimming on Thanksgiving day while they were all cold with snow… But no matter what our origins are, or where we are in the world, or what the weather may be, we still have plenty to be thankful for!
