Friendsgiving!

The Ladies at Lexington Place decided to host the First Annual Friendsgiving this year.

Thanks to an organized email chain and a stellar excel spreadsheet, a meal amongst nearly forty hungry people was executed perfectly!

The rules were simple: everyone bring a food item that could feed 8-10 people.  A few guys volunteered to do the turkey...and...it was magical.  I forget how much I love typical Thanksgiving fare until this time every year.

We missed you, Katie B!


The girls did an amazing job seating the crowd - there were tables and chairs for each person along with a lovely place setting!

Once everyone was seated, we took turns going around the room and sharing something that we were thankful for from the past year. 


After the meal, some of us gratefully lounged on the couch while digesting.  It was definitely the sign of a successful meal!

A big thank you to the Lexington Place girls!

I hope "Friendsgiving" becomes an annual tradition.  Next year, I'll be sure to fast the week before...
