(Thanksgiving) Weekend in Pictures

How was everyone's Thanksgiving weekend? Mine was full and lovely. After a six and a half hour bus ride to D.C. on Wednesday night we got to work making a pumpkin cheesecake and pie crusts until the wee hours of the morning. The next day was spent christening my friend's new kitchen (they had just moved in that week!) with its first Thanksgiving dinner. After a lazy day wandering around Old Town Alexandria, I came home to New York to get a Christmas tree with my roommates. Friends came over to help us trim the tree while drinking mulled wine and eating snickerdoodles. There was even a dramatic re-telling of the story of the Christmas pickle.

And then, just like that, it was Christmas. I have lots of Christmas-y things planned for Somewhere North, including a few gift guides and the 12 Days of Christmas. I can't wait!
