Apartment Therapy: 10 Essentials for a Real Good Thanksgiving

How in the world is it already November 11, 2014? I swear, it seems like just yesterday I was packing up my car and moving down into Chicago. And now here we are, holiday season rapidly approaching. This is my favorite time of the year - time spent with family and friends, the food, gift giving, family traditions, the holiday spirit. I am so tempted to start playing Christmas music but I refuse to give in before the day after Thanksgiving.


 No matter who you are choosing to spend this year's Thanksgiving with, it is always a smart idea to get a head start. When I stumbled upon this article from Apartment Therapy, I knew that I had to share it with you. It can never hurt to be over prepared when planning a gathering, especially a holiday gathering.
