The Chillest Thanksgiving Ever

One Scrabble victory, two pies and countless hours of relaxation later, my Thanksgiving holiday has come to an end. This was the first year I didn’t travel home to spend it with my family. Instead I headed to small-town Wisconsin to celebrate with my boyfriend’s parents and grandparents.
