I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! I was overjoyed to see this holiday come. First, let's be honest, everyone deserves a break; a time to step back and regroup. Although I'm not the one in the kitchen stirring a multitude of pots, I can say that for me, Thanksgiving is a breath of fresh air. It's not even about all the amazing food dishes, it's just a feel-good holiday - one that I enjoy spending with my family.
I did have a huge grad project due during the holidays so I had to spend most of mine working, but it was nice to be able to do that. In between, I got to spend time with my brother and my mom. My brother and I went to a local lake with a walking trail for a few moments. It's really a nice spot.

At the end of the holidays, we visited several family members on my dad's side of the family. At my uncle's house, my cousin's husband prepared the most delicious upside down cranberry cake. My aunt (his mother in law) made a cup of coffee, served in mugs she made. That made it even more special.
My video chronicle:
I did finish my project and have just about wrapped up the semester. One course is done, the other will be done by the weekend. I still have to finish up my course from the summer, and I am aiming for that in the next month. If I'm lucky, I'll have time for a project or two. *fingers crossed*
How were your holidays?
