• Thanksgiving 2019

    Even though we have lived in Sac for over a year now, it still feels weird to not travel so much the week of Thanksgiving. Last year Meghan was only a week old, and it was difficult to really go anywhere, but I’m happy I was able to make the trip to Lodi, especially because my brother and sister-in-law were in town.
