Thanksgiving with Strut Your Stroller~



Last year Thanksgiving took on a whole new meaning of being thankful. We were living in a beach house in Long Beach, NY and Hurricane Sandy had completely destroyed the homes of our family and friends. We had been staying in a hotel three hours away in Connecticut for weeks when we finally got the ok from FEMA to move back. Everything that we owned on the first floor of the home was damaged and gone forever, but our family and friends were safe and healthy; that's all that mattered. My husband and I wanted to celebrate reasons to be thankful and decided to go all out for Thanksgiving in hopes of bringing holiday cheer to our loved ones in distress. It was a perfect holiday and I hope our cheery decor and recipes inspire you to flash that holiday spirit this year! Time to be thankful for what we have and where we are now.
