This time of year is one for celebrating our lives with gratitude, warmth, and family all culminating around the dinner table on Thanksgiving Day. The house is warm from the oven, friends and family are coming in from the cold autumn air, the timer going off at odd intervals for each individual recipe you are preparing with love for the ones you hold dear. Nieces, nephews, and grandchildren are running around underfoot keeping things especially exciting. As you prepare the meal to all be finished at the perfect time, you light candles around the dinner table, fill everyone's wine glasses, and collapse gratefully into your seat at the table for this delicious meal. Sounds idyllic, right? And it is, of course. But have you ever thought about simply making a dinner reservation for your entire family for Thanksgiving? We've done it, and it really takes the stress and chaos out of the day, allowing you to fully be in the moment with your friends and family. So whether you are sticking to your family tradition and cooking your meal at home or want to try something new, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
