If you are visiting someone or plan to, make sure you are layering your clothes or dressing appropriately for the weather, staying on top of your health by eating nutritious food, staying active, and getting proper rest. Don't forget to wash your hands and utilize hand sanitizer in public spaces!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and that means food and family! People have different ways to prepare for Thanksgiving.
Some plan out a list, down to the activities and conversations that can take place at the dinner table. These people also take out the recipe books and follow the directions to a tee! Others may take the go-with-the-flow approach and wing it! That includes recipes too.
Which group are you in? No matter your approach, we hope that this holiday season is a fulfilling one!
