To pass the time on the drive, I will be sipping on a Starbucks holiday drink (can't decide which one yet) and catching up my magazine reading with this:
Please, read Kinfolk if you haven't read it yet. It is a book-type magazine that comes out every few months and features small gatherings. The concept is simple and refreshing...no gorgeous models telling me what to wear, making me feel frumpy. No barrage of colorful ads and pictures of items that make me discontent with what I already have. It has beautiful, clean writing and even more poetic and inspiring pictures about gatherings that we can all re-create. Thanksgiving really is such a gathering anyway.
Since my husband is staunchly against Christmas music before Thanksgiving, I am going to force him to listen to "Thanksgiving" and "The Gladdest Thing" by Deb Talan. She is one half of the folk-pop duo The Weepies and she has a folksy, slow sound that makes me think of this particular holiday.
Enjoy this happy song by listening to it HERE on YouTube.
Happy travels to friends making it home for Thanksgiving!!
