Giving Thanks

I'm fortunate enough to have mentors who know themselves very well, and I'm most thankful to have them in my life. Self-awareness is a character trait I greatly admire in others.

That said, if there's one thing I've learned about myself this year - it's that I'd much rather just do something than talk about it. I'd rather get my stand mixer out and start creaming the butter and sugar than wax poetically about the virtues of using organic, unsalted butter -which is indeed what I use. (Speaking of butter and sugar, they were definitely present in this beauty of a breakfast this morning.)

My inclination to do, rather than chat, is why - going forward - you're likely to see more photos and less chit-chat around here. For example, here are some amber jewels of kuri squash we had the other night, and whose leftovers I'm about to make into a savory squash pie for Thanksgiving dinner. Not much else needs to be said, the photo hopefully speaks for itself.

A photo is worth a thousand words, so I'm going to spare myself the small-talk and get to the point of what I really like to do around here- share photos of our table-life. Thanks to those who have helped me to grow as an individual this year and to realize that the most important thing to know is one's self.

Happy Thanksgiving.
