Thanksgiving Recap

Hello there! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Derek and I both worked on Wednesday, so we headed to Wilkesboro after dinner. After a short 2 hour drive we spent time with Derek’s dad and one of his sisters before heading to bed.

The next morning, we partook in one of my family’s traditions: running/walking a Turkey Trot. Last year Derek’s whole family came to Lexington, Kentucky (where my parents and brother live) for Thanksgiving, and we all did a Turkey Trot together.

Thanksgiving 2013.

They enjoyed it so much that they decided to participate in a local Turkey Trot this year, too!

It was cold, but it was a beautiful morning for a walk/run.

I forgot my ear warmers, so Derek let me borrow this lovely hat. Β It was definitely an interesting look for me, but it kept my ears nice and warm.

Part of the race path was right next to a creek. It was serene back there, and we really enjoyed catching up with Derek’s family while we walked.

Derek was proud of his accomplishment. (Isn’t that the most ridiculous hoodie ever?) He’s a goofball.

After the Turkey Trot, we headed back to the house and got cleaned up for Thanksgiving lunch. We ate at Derek’s grandpa’s independent living community. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out at Derek’s house before heading back to Durham in the evening since I had to work on Friday.

I missed my family a lot this year, especially since it’s my favorite holiday, but I’m glad that I could spend Thanksgiving with my new family-in-law.

Now I’m looking forward to Christmas! This will be the first time Derek and I get a tree together, and I am SO excited about it. Look for a Christmas tree post in the near future!
