This year we’re staying home and not making the 23 hour journey by car or flight -to-Europe X3 plane trip home. We’re enjoying the fall weather, hopefully will go mushroom picking (my new obsession) and eat waaaay too much pumpkin pie.

In December, I looped another person into my social experiment, asking one of my best friends to join my everyday ‘Thank you’ ritual. Read more
