After tomorrow, the holiday season can officially commence. Bring on the festive lighting, homey decorations, and Elf !
But before we get to that, it's important to take a moment to sit back and remember all the great things we have to be thankful for over this Thanksgiving break! So without further ado...
1.) Reconnecting with family & friends!
For many students (myself included), Thanksgiving is the first time in the fall semester that they return home! That makes it a great time to see family and friends that you may not have seen in months. It's always such a sweet reunion over turkey and pumpkin pie (or a breakfast date, like the one my friend Maureen and I had this morning)!
2.) Having a home-cooked meal (or several)!
There's nothing quite like making your triumphant return to a fully stocked kitchen in your own home. (Oh, the luxury!!) Coming home for Thanksgiving doesn't just guarantee you a hogfest like no other on the day itself, but also a whole long weekend's worth of home-cooked goodness! Indulge and enjoy it while it lasts!
3.) Taking a break!
It is a break, after all! It's important to take time to relax amidst the constant stresses of this time in the semester. (It's crazy to think that it's almost over!!) Sleep in, enjoy down time with family and friends, and restore your body and mind for the upcoming weeks at school!
What are you thankful for this year?
Have a wonderful break and a happy Thanksgiving!!
