As we gather with friends and family today, I am particularly reminded of how fortunate I am to have so many wonderful people in my life.  My little brother Chris and his lovely wife Kristy have the world's cutest kid, aka my nephew Jackson Parker, -- the photo is of him dressed as a turkey at his first Thanksgiving -- and he brings endless joy to me!!  Since I can't be in Texas with them, and the rest of my family (parents and my older brother) are scattered around the world, I am bringing my "D.C. family" over to my house for Thanksgiving today.  Thanksgiving is kind-of like that now that I am older:  most of my peers stay in their city of occupation for Thanksgiving and then spend extended times at home over Christmas.

This is my first Thanksgiving where I play hostess.  I'm not nervous about it, even though the whole Thanksgiving experiment could be a terrible failure.  I think my confidence has less to do with my cooking (lots of enthusiasm not so much practice with making a turkey) and everything to do with me having an abundance of alcohol.  I'm not much of a drinker, though all of my staged "shot" and "drinking" photos on social media would say otherwise, but I have had a lot of alcohol gifted to me for various food and travel segments I have been doing this fall.  So with the confidence of a marvelous liquor supply, I thought "Why not have everyone over for Thanksgiving!?!  If the food is awful, then at least there is enough alcohol to soothe over the bad after-taste!"  Seriously thought, it should be a great time of eating and drinking and merriment ... and if all else fails D.C. has a slew of wonderful hotel restaurants open for Thanksgiving!  Happy eating!
