I'm the first to admit that it stinks not living near family - DO YOU HEAR THAT FAMILY!?!? It STINKS I tell ya. Yet we seem to put ourselves into this situation quite often. First Prague, now Indy. You miss out on a lot when you live far away and trying to fit in a year's worth of life over a week-long visit just doesn't cut it. And holidays? Bittersweet. So last year Kev and I decided not to go anywhere for Thanksgiving and by anywhere I mean avoided all trains, planes, and automobiles to visit family. Instead we... dun dun dun... Stayed put. And it was glorious - no offense family. In fact it was so glorious we did it again this year and have officially declared it a new tradition.
