Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you've all had a fantastic day filled with loved ones and tables full of good food!
We've had a wonderful day here at our house, though not quite what we've been used to in the past. I think one of the biggest changes was the fact that it was 80 degrees today! We're normally in closed shoes and jackets by Thanksgiving in New York, but today I was in a tank top and flip flops! It was beautiful out!
We started out the morning in our usual fashion, by watching Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Also as usual, I teared up when the parade started and when the Rockettes performed. I think I have overactive tear ducts or something... I cry over everything!
My mom cooked a beautiful turkey, and the mashed potatoes came out amazingly (if I do say so myself). We kept waiting for something to go wrong, but nothing ever did. I can remember years when the turkey never finished cooking so we ended up with a Thanksgiving feast full of side dishes only. I've screwed up the potatoes before, and usually the gravy overflows all over the stove as it cooks. Yet somehow, nothing bad happened today.
I'm thankful for a lot of things this year, and I thought I would share some of those things here...
I'm thankful for:
I hope that you've all enjoyed a wonderful holiday and have as much to be thankful for as I do. If you'd like to share anything that you're thankful for this year, I'd love to hear about it in the comments.
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
