While I'm sad not to get to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with my family this year, I'm thankful for Skype. Without Skype, I think I probably would have hauled ass right back to Texas two and a half years ago when I moved to Taiwan. Skype made my transition easier because without my family, I'm lost.

Sometimes it's tough living so far away from home, but I'm thankful for my family and how supportive they are of my dreams and goals. They know how much I love traveling and how much I want to see the world. I'm thankful for all the opportunities I've had and everyone who has helped me seize the day.
Yeah, well, when you don't live in America you don't get to take three days off for the best holiday in the world. So we are having a belated Thanksgiving feast today.
So far I've made the following: 2 pumpkin pies, 1 lemon meringue pie, 1 brownie-walnut pie, 1 apple-raspberry galette, 1 pear-almond galette, 24 dinner rolls, 1 loaf of pumpkin bread (for breakfast!) and my family's signature Southern-style cornbread dressing.

Mmmm, so much food.
|The first time I've ever made dinner rolls and they're absolutely beautiful.|
And if you're confused by the excessive amount of food, first I would like to remind you that's it's Thanksgiving and it's one of the few times of years that I hope for leftovers I can chow on for the next week. Also, I'm feeding 11 other people and myself.
What happens when 4 Americans, 1 Czech-Americans, 2 Czechs, 2 Brits, 2 French and an Indian (from India, c'mon people) get together for a belated Thanksgiving feast in Prague.
I dunno yet, I'll let you know after it's all over.
