The Friendsgiving Nomikai


There are a lot of things I am thankful for.

But tonight I'm thankful for friends. The friends who have different backgrounds. The friends who are moving in different directions. The friends that, despite all your differences, are there for you through thick and thin.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving day in Japan because, well, obviously we didn't have pilgrims or native Americans who shared their dinner together here. But I grew up loving this holiday and the fourth Thursday of November always reminds me that I have a lot to be thankful for.

So tonight I'm thankful for my friends who all used to be coworkers. We all work in completely different places now but still get together often to support and encourage one another. And it's just what I needed tonight. Love you girls. x

  1. Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving too, so I always celebrate it with a なんちゃって dinner ;)

    1. I did the traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and all that last year so it was nice that I didn't have to do anything this year. haha. But I still like the tradition of Thanksgiving so the なんちゃって dinner sounds great. I think I'll try that next year ;)
