A Tiny Thanksgiving Tablescape
There’s no way that we could host our entire family for Thanksgiving aboard The Catalina Wine Mixer, but that didn’t stop us from getting in on the Turkey Day festivities.
Brian’s desk doubles as our dining room table, and I think it looks pretty cute all dressed up for Thanksgiving. Here are a few shots of our fall tablescape, and a list of some of my favorite traditions and Turkey Day fun facts.
This will be our first Thanksgiving on the boat, so I was even more excited to decorate. This time last year, we were still sorting, donating, selling, and packing all of our belongings. It’s crazy how much things can change in just one year!
Don’t tell anyone, but I don’t really like Thanksgiving food. It’s all so brown and bland! I really wish tacos had been served at the first Thanksgiving, too. Is it just me?
This year will be our 10th Thanksgiving together. I don’t know where the time has gone! It’ll also be our eighth Thanksgiving with our precious little turkey, Indy.
We moved on the boat the day after Thanksgiving - in the pouring rain. We got absolutely soaked, but I wouldn’t have wanted to be doing anything else. Moving onto a tiny yacht is way more fun than Black Friday sale shopping. This year, we were planning to spend Black Friday out on the water or on a hike, but with the smoke from the Camp Fires hanging over the bay, we’ll probably end up watching movies and making tacos instead.
The thing I love most about Thanksgiving is that it reminds me to reflect on the things I’m most grateful for. That list would be way too long to write out here. But, most importantly, everyone I love is safe, happy, and healthy - what more could I ask for?
