Families, countries, and friendships are rooted by tradition.
Sometimes it's tempting to break away from tradition.
Mr. Branflake and I jetted off to a romantic getaway last Thanksgiving
but we found ourselves at the fanciest restaurant in Monterey eating turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes.
So although traditional things may be boring to some I think Thanksgiving is a way for us to tip our feathered hats toward these wonderful traditions.
This is the most traditional Thanksgiving setting I could find.
Rustic, elegant, and a clear celebration of the harvest.

does not get any more traditional than this.
My family loves it and I make it every year.

What I'm Wearing
I love the classic look of lockets, sweetheart necklines, feathered hats, and leather gloves.
Classy and simple.
I just don't think we decorate enough Thanksgiving cookies.
I think I need to start this new tradition.
Do you embrace traditions?
For all my friends not in the U.S.:
I promise if you invite me over I will cook a huge traditional Thanksgiving meal for you- any time of year.
