Thanksgiving is one of my FAVORITE holidays. Unfortunately, both of our parents live away in Asia… so every year, I host an “Orphan Thanksgiving” with friends who live away from their family like us.  I got to spend a great evening with such wonderful friends and my husband. I am truly Thankful for everything in my life.

After all those photos I took of chopping my food… I took ONE photo of my final product, shown above.

Luckily, My new photographer friend Taea joined our Thanksgiving dinner this year and she took some photos for me… which is coming soon… meanwhile,  she sent me some of her iphone photos…. IPHONE PHOTOS people!!! The photos look amazing!!
