Foggy Weekend

Sunday afternoon I took a drive up the Hudson. I’m kicking myself now, for not bringing a real camera. The fog and spitting rain (coupled with the unseasonably warm temp) made the Hudson valley seem otherworldly. Here are a few snaps that I got with the celly.

I almost didn’t make it out west for Thanksgiving this year. Airfare was a bit outrageous when I first started looking in August. Thanks to Kayak’s price alerts, I was able to snatch up a relatively last minute flight for a decent price. I think that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Interestingly enough, I heard several of my friends echo this sentiment during the weeks leading up to the holiday this year. Various reasons were given.. because it is non-religious, because it is during the fall, etc.. I’m not really sure why I like it so much. I had a really good one this year. I was able to see my parents as well as each of my siblings. I was also able to meet my newest niece. There are few things that are as satisfying as spending time with my peoples.
