Friendsgiving

This past Sunday, Lukasz and I hosted our very first Friendsgiving.  Hosting Thanksgiving dinner was something I had always wanted to do ever since I was a young girl, watching my own mother make her own version of the giant feast (Which included some kind of peruvian stuffing and Russian potato salad).  Mine, however, was pretty Americanized.  I ended up making it potluck-style and Tatiana and I focused on turkey, stuffing and gravy.  Thanks to my mother’s baste recipe, I’d have to say we basically NAILED IT!  ( I literally could not be more proud of us.)

The bird was delicious and moist and perfect! Everyone’s side dishes and libations really brought our Friendsgiving dinner together.  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect first Friendsgiving.


Having all of our friends over just made me realize how lucky and thankful I was to be surrounded by so many amazing people. It’s hard to believe it’s only been a few years since I moved to New York from California and I went from knowing absolutely nobody here to creating my own family in this big city.  With big changes coming in the future, I can’t wait for many more celebrations surrounded by all the love. πŸ˜‰
