Hey friends,
It’s finally getting cold here in Nashville and I’ve flipped to the last page of my calendar. I’ve been cherishing each and every carrot, radish, head of lettuce, leaf of kale… it’s all still here, but not for long.

Last week I celebrated November in all of its abundant glory– a creative, collaborative, joyful, farm-fresh, vegan Thanksgiving feast!!! Friends arrived throughout the day, and we worked together to make lentil-pecan-stuffed acorn squash, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato-peanut soup, spicy daikon cakes, kraut, tempeh, chanterelle gravy, fresh bread with rosemary-garlic spread, turnip greens, salad, cranberry sauce, stir-fried broccoli, pumpkin cheezecake, chocolate-peanut butter cookies, whipped cashew cream, wine, hibiscus tea, and even more stuff I’m forgetting! DELICIOUS.

What a celebration! When we choose not to have a turkey on the table, our traditions are not threatened– instead, our celebration becomes more meaningful and full of life.

…and what would Thanksgiving be without Green Friday???

After helping our farmer friends harvest for the CSA, we all feasted on leftovers–

Thanks again to all who have supported, endorsed, enjoyed, and COLORED my very first zine, Happy Thanksliving!   This was such a fun project. Your glimmering, shimmering feedback has gotten me totally pumped, and I can assure you that there are more coloring zines to come!

What an inspiring post! I wanted to crawl right inside those pictures and join you all! I was especially intrigued by the music afterward — I’ve been eying banjos lately! Thank you for sharing your beautiful day with all of us out here in internet-land!
