Bittens, we're all done with our Thanksgiving posts this year.
And let's face it, tomorrow is Thanksgiving -- if you don't already know what you're making, you're likely letting someone else do the cooking or you're gonna be serving Chinese takeout. (No judgment!)
We've loved sharing all these dishes with you, and having you cook along with those 7 pies.
Now it's time for you to share a meal with your loved ones tomorrow -- whether that means a crowded house full of family, a table of friends, dinner for two at a restaurant, or even just pausing for a moment over takeout to think about friends and family you can't be with this year.
We'll be honest. In lots of ways, 2016 has been pretty terrible. Shootings that have shaken us, crises that have tried us, an election (and a result) that has bitterly divided us. Wars, refugees, Zika, bombings, Brexit, Bowie -- it's been rough. And we don't know what's going to happen in the year to come.
But know this: We -- all of us -- are exceedingly, ridiculously, unimaginably fortunate. We are here. Right now. We are alive together in this moment, and we have so, so much for which to be grateful. Tomorrow, let's all be mindful of just how fortunate we are, even in a year when that can be hard to see.
We love you, and we'll be back after Thanksgiving with some more posts.
For now, we'll leave you with some photos. Up top are portraits we took on Fakesgiving a few weeks ago. There are a couple people we didn't get a shot of, unfortunately. But it was really a special gathering of people -- from D.C., Annapolis, New York, Chicago, and even Switzerland! (Apparently, when folks know it's the final Fakesgiving, they will show up.)
Now, here's our full Fakesgiving menu, and some more shots from our feast, snapped by our friend Ken.
