Our Thanksgiving traditions have always been my favorite. With an enormous family and complicated dynamics, holidays that involve gift giving can be sort of stressful. When Thanksgiving rolls around and it’s just about food and spending time together–that’s when the best, warmest memories are made. This post has been sponsored by Single Edition Media on behalf of La Brea Bakery. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Millions of families look forward to spending a day or just an evening with their loved ones enjoying food and personal pastimes. But what about those hidden heroes–that unless you’ve got one in your family, you may not even think about–that go to work on Thanksgiving so we can be free to enjoy it?
I’m talking about nurses, doctors, waiters, soldiers, firefighters, police officers, etc. The stoic individuals that work through and miss their family’s Thanksgiving traditions to keep us safe, fed, and happy. I’m so excited to announce this special contest to honor these awesome folks.
