Hello and happy Thanksgiving!
I’m pretty sure I have a low-key holiday in store, with only my immediate family and sister-in-law celebrating together. I’m so happy that I’m staying home with my family because the last time we were all at home together for Thanksgiving was in 2010.
Penn State has been on Thanksgiving break since Monday, and it’s been pretty amazing. Before the break, I made some lofty goals that included finishing up a big project and practicing my senior research presentation. It’s taken me longer than I expected to complete my goals because I’ve been feeling so burnt out on school work! I really needed this break.
When I haven’t been working on homework, I’ve been baking, reading, or walking Lola and Moses. That’s about it! I love it.
I’m making sure to keep warm in the kitchen by baking cookies and cooking soup.
Vanilla-frosted sugar cookies to be exact ;). I will post the recipe soon!
