Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be working tomorrow as the parade rumbles past (no rest for the journalistic wicked) but will be heading out by 5 to eat a giant dinner with my usual ragtag crew of Brits abroad and other waifs and strays. Though of course TG isn't a holiday I grew up with, I nonetheless embrace it's central pillars of food, friends and overall hygge-ness, and lord knows we all need a daily dose of gratitude. Also Isaac has been tasked with the turkey, so pray for us, bbs. I'm wishing you all a beautiful day. My weekly round up below.

Isaac and I gifted ourselves a few days in New Orleans over Christmas. We'll be staying at this newly-revamped classic (the dining room, you guys!) and cannot wait!
