My husband and I moved to Georgia when my daughter was just a bun in the oven.
We miss our immediate families on Thanksgiving, but enjoy taking advantage of the gorgeous autumn weather.
One year we spent Thanksgiving at Lake Lanier. This year we went for a hike at Amicalola Falls. Both times were sunny and in the 60s. Simply glorious.
Like the healthier cranberry sauce my aunt makes, being away from family on Thanksgiving is bittersweet. But we enjoy making the most of it by experiencing the beauty of nature and our surroundings. We met some lovely other families on our outing too!
