We know it’s a little early, but we started celebrating Thanksgiving already! Because both of our families live in SoCal, we start coordinating Thanksgiving Day plans pretty early every year. It’s not so important who’s family we visit on the actual day of, but that we get a chance to celebrate this season with both families– even if that means celebrating earlier or later!
Because not all of Jake’s brothers will be free on actual Thanksgiving day, we decided to have a mini Thanksgiving hot pot on Saturday. It was fun!
And on Sunday, we celebrated Thanksgiving with Cindy’s family. The six of us decided to walk, instead of drive, to a Szechuan restaurant that’s located about 1.5 miles away from where we live. Cindy’s happy we decided to walk, because it gave us all more time to hang out, talk, and bond! Dinner was also delicious!
We have so much to be thankful for, but this year we’re especially thankful for family. We’re super thankful our parents are healthy. As we grow older, it is something that we become more and more grateful for. We also cherish time with our parents more. We’re both also thankful for our siblings. Sibling relationships are often taken for granted, but they are the types of relationships that you just can’t replace.
Anyways, that was our very “Asian” Thanksgiving part 1!
