Jacob and I both love Thanksgiving. A lot. So much so that we decided that only one Thanksgiving a year was not enough. Hence, the birth of Springsgiving. While Thanksgiving is traditionally spent with your family, Springsgiving is about spending time with your good friends (and my parents and Jacob’s mom) and eating some delicious food. […]
