Last year I hosted my first Thanksgiving. With so many family members nearby it's always fallen to someone older, wiser, more pulled together than me. I could only fool them for so long.
I insisted Mr. Hedin take a picture of me with my first ever actual Thanksgiving turkey. This sums it up perfectly - a little blurry, barefoot, in my front hall next to the turkey my seven year old made out of grocery bags. I love this picture.
This is what Thanksgiving should be about. Fun, family, and not totally perfect. Are you hosting this year? Host it for real.
