I am seriously in love with all my friends and family. It’s an easy sort of love, where we uphold traditions of taking tequila shots before our Thanksgiving feast. It’s a love where nobody is allowed to eat dessert until at least four people take an Instagram/Snapchat/photo; where instead of shopping on Black Friday we eat ramen and scour our hometown downtown for the best egg puffs and taro milk boba; where we wake up at 8am on Saturday to drive to Ocean Beach for brunch and end up spending the next 16 hours hanging out without any plans at all (see flâneur); and when our friend gets engaged we spend the evening popping too many bottles of champagne and eating pumpkin spice Chex mix.
During these past few days of eating, relaxing, and eating again, I was reminded of how amazing this city is and how I have killer friends to match. As someone mentioned to me, it’s important to keep people you love close rather than waste time on people who aren’t making you smile every day. And I gotta say, I smiled ear to ear this long weekend and hope y’all did too.
What was the highlight of your Thanksgiving?
