Monday Moodboard

And just like that it's November. My dear readers from the US are probably gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday. I know it's a big day at my brother's place, well maybe not this year because he and his family just moved into a new house in Washington D.C. a couple of days ago, so he'll be busy unpacking and settling in... Anyhow, I really love this holiday - obviously not because of the turkey (I'm a vegetarian), but for having the entire family gathered in one place. And if family is too far away Friendsgiving is a wonderful alternative! Of course there is always something to be thankful for each and every day, but I still like the idea of having a special day to express gratitude with friends and family :)

Und schon ist es November und bald auch "Thanksgiving", welches wir hier in Deutschland als Erntedankfest kennen (war bereits am 4. Oktober) jedoch nicht als offiziellen Feiertag. In USA ist der vierte Donnerstag im November ein großer Familienfesttag, so auch bei meinem Bruder der dort mit Familie lebt. Wer keine Familie in der Nähe hat feiert alternativ Friendsgiving, eine wirklich nette Idee wie ich finde! Was mir daran gefällt ist das gesellige Beisammensein (weniger der Truthahn, denn ich bin ja Vegetarierin). Natürlich gibt es jeden Tag etwas für das ich dankbar bin, aber es ist einfach schön das auch mal in netter Runde auszudrücken :)

  12. What sweet picks! As always. =)

    I'm not really sure what we'll be doing for Thanksgiving this year. We won't be with family, but last year we celebrated with friends and hopefully we can do the same this year.

  18. I love that super chunky blanket. So cool! My mom makes a batch of stuffing outside the turkey for me. I'm the only vegetarian of the bunch but my brother prefers stuffing prepared outside of a bird so at least I don't have to feel like she is only making it for me! The veggie casseroles are my favs.

  19. My husband and I don't eat meat, but we love Thanksgiving.
    Gratitude is a great premise for a holiday no matter who you spend it with or what you eat. :)

  22. I know, how did we get here already?! We attend a Thanksgiving and a Friendsgiving every year, so we don't have to worry about hosting but we always bring food. Before you know it, it will be Christmas!

  23. Yes, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Of course, I have such a large family, that we always enjoy seeing one another and spending the day or the weekend together!
