Belated thanksgiving

For some reason my camera is not wanting to give me its pictures - I have a whole host of great shots from our Thanksgiving celebration last week that it's greedily holding onto. Either it's greedy, or there's something amiss with the USB cord. You'll have to settle for these fab vintage pics from macy's parades of old.

Even without photographic evidence, I can testify that I had a great Thanksgiving. Dan and I had our new friends Ian and Monica over for an England-accented-after-work feast (M&I whipped up TWO amazing pumpkin pies!) that left me uncomfortably full for days. In a good way.

Aside from turkey (or a pepper and pine nut quiche in my case), I have SO much to be thankful for. Here goes...

{i have a soft spot for kermit}

  1. Flights are booked for L.A.
  2. Flights go through Tokyo so we'll get to spend two days there!
  3. Flights go via New Zealand where we'll spend 6 weeks+ with Dan's family who we haven't seen in three years. 
  4. It's summer in New Zealand!
  5. We leave in less than 2 weeks (yikes).

Also, it's hard to put into words how it feels to tie up the last 4 years of my life - my English Season. I can't yet. But I do have a sense of satisfaction - that even though I've felt incredibly stretched in more ways than I'd originally thought necessary, I've made it out the other end (almost). And I have a lot of really good, beautiful things/ relationships to show for it.

So...I'll be in Tokyo in 2 weeks. Anyone got any hidden gems for me to hit up? I'm all ears!
