I really don’t like the holidays. It’s something I have a future blog written about, but in general, it brings up lots of mixed feelings for me. All that said, I think there’s always time for gratitude and I’m very thankful for the time I just spent over Thanksgiving.
I may need to rethink my stance on not liking the holidays because lots of smiling occurred, which makes my heart incredibly grateful.
Take a look.
I took an early flight out of Fort Lauderdale on Thanksgiving.
Landed in Vegas just in time to see this turkey.
Enjoyed this amazing Thanksgiving spread from my sister-in-law’s parents.
Had one of my girliest moments ever when the hubster surprised me by secretly flying out to join us. (Med school rotations often throw a kink in holiday plans…or plans of any sort.)
(it’s playing sideways. I’ll fix it later…)
Saw another glorious Nevada sunset.
PAID to be cold.
Took a wonderful, non-sweaty run. Even clocked my best mile pace in years. (So what if the last .15 was all downhill…)
Went shopping with Carlos…errrr, my niece.

Put those pants we got her in Thailand to good use.
Hiked around Valley of Fire.
Sipped one last Vegas margarita at Chili’s in the airport because that’s mandatory when you take a red-eye.
Somehow managed to get upgraded with this clown on our way home.
Somebody let these nutbags in first class today. Jokes. I earn those freaking upgrades. 💃 A photo posted by Caroline (@carolinemadethis) on
And in between all of that, we laughed. Oh, did we laugh. I’m so thankful for laughter. I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with lots of laughter and love…and a crazy family, of course.
What did you guys do for the holiday?
