If you’re ever feeling under appreciated or invisible, just announce that you are moving away. Words of encouragement, kindness and support will flow forth from every direction…at least that’s how it’s been for me.
I am very thankful this holiday season for everyone who has reached out, offered to help, sent smiling and wine emojis, and has repeatedly talked me down from my anxiety cliff. I truly did not realize how many people have my back, and I’m completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.
It’s bittersweet in a way, because I have been having a difficult year where I felt fairly unsupported, which made the decision to move a little bit easier, but now that I’m able to see what I was missing, I’m feeling sadder than ever.
One good thing is that I have the luxury of realizing that everything I do this holiday season will be my “last time” in San Diego.
Last San Diego Thanksgiving
Last San Diego Christmas
Last trip to the San Diego Zoo
Last meal at my favorite restaurant.
I’m doing my very best to live fully in each moment, in order to hold on to it forever.
If you too are looking to make the holidays last for as long as possible, may I suggest making this awesome Thanksgiving leftover brunch. Skillet hash with leftover turkey and vegetables, and crispy leftover stuffing waffles.
Relive your holiday memories for a few extra days, and count your blessings just one more time.
- 2 cups leftover stuffing
- 1 egg
- Preheat waffle iron
- Combine stuffing and egg until thoroughly combined. If the mixture still seems dry, add a few tablespoons of water or chicken stock, until mixture resembles a chunky waffle batter.
- Spread the batter evenly over waffle iron. Close the lid and cook until golden brown.
