Our first Thanksgiving was absolutely lovely! My girl Sydney and I split the meal between her family of four and Will and I, and the prep went swimmingly. All of the dishes turned out delicious, and Will and I were very proud to open our home for the holiday.

Thanksgiving was the perfect time to use our wedding china and crystal for the first time. It felt so special to serve our meal on the piece that were given to us by friends and family for our nuptials.

And on to tonight, when we have our annual holiday cocktail party to welcome in winter with friends by our sides and champagne in our hands.
