Thanksgiving may well be my favourite holiday of the year.
I love cooking all day (and often the day before).  I love sharing the time with my friends and family.  I love being deliberate about being thankful.  I love the smell of apple, pumpkin, lemon meringue and peach pies baking.  I love baking the pies from scratch. 
I love that the air is chilly outside, but that I have apple cider warming me inside.
I love crisp autumn leaves and the soft glow of candles.
Yup.  I LOVE Thanksgiving.

Usually.  This year, it has been a hellish experience that I would rather not talk about or repeat.  Suffice it to say this will be the LAST year I do Thanksgiving at my house.
