So being that this was my first official Thanksgiving away from home I expected to be curled up on the couch with a vat of ice cream between my knees while I cried my eyes out watching the Charlie Brown holiday special. But instead the BF and I decided to buy way too much food and spend the morning tackling some of our family’s recipes. It was weird, and a little sad, but also a lot of fun, and strangely liberating.
Yes there are only two of us. And yes we ate everything in four days (including the cheesecake in the fridge). But don’t worry, stuffing my face isn’t all I did over the break. I’ve also been heads down editing Top Secret Book #2 (yes, you heard me right). So, stay tuned for more on that in the upcoming weeks!!!
Oh and how about a special late Thanksgiving day TEASER!!!
She wasn’t ready to read more, for the illusion to be completely shattered. Instead, she was ready to try and settle into her life here; she was ready to make friends and to start school. Maybe that would start tonight with Jo or Diego. She didn’t feel like the same ghost she’d been in the States, absorbing her lecture notes and the pin thin type of her textbooks with more ferocity than she did any kind of social interaction. She had always been distant from her classmates, and it was an independence Nita had never understood, and as if it was some kind of vulgar flaw, could never seem to forgive her for. But Liliana knew it had been born from a place of impermanence. The second her mother was taken from her, the entire world turned to fragile finite sand, the flecks constantly shifting and the shapes they once created being lost within the folds.
