>non-practicing family values

To begin my Thanksgiving vacation, Joseph and I met in New York for a literary treat at Billy’s Bakery. (Note how sophisticated we are.)
If you feel like we’re living in a post-modern society, you would probably relate to the lack of traditionalism when observing Thanksgiving in my family; this is how we do it in Florida.
Joseph experienced how we do Hotel-Buffet-Thanksgiving-Dinner firsthand.
At least the hotel had delicious sweet potatoes, which is about all that can be said for it.
I completed my Thanksgiving feast with a hike up Mount Construction Site in the parking lot of the hotel.
Documented by the ever-ready documentarian, Joseph.
The beach was a bit cold, but we still managed to burn.
Joseph and I made Key Lime Pie with a chocolate crust.
Here he is whipping the cream.
Eating the pie was overwhelmingly successful.
And then, too soon, it was time for us to go.
