Being newlyweds and having families in cities 430 miles apart creates a bit of a dilemma come holidays. Obviously, we both want to share the holidays with our families and share comfortable traditions in our home cities but whichever place we decide, one of us is away from family. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we reminded ourselves that we are fortunate to have two places to celebrate, and doubly so, because each family understands if we end up elsewhere.
This Thanksgiving we woke up early and drove up to Placerville to visit the Zavoda’s. We enjoyed great company and an outright feast that included a bbq’d and deep fried turkey, ham and no joke six desserts!
Did I mention that Thanksgiving is the best holiday of the year?
After dinner we took a walk from the Zavoda house and a enjoyed a cold country sunset which included some great leafless oaks.
