Maidstone

Thanksgiving. Ironically enough, the thing I’ve always been the most thankful for is the thing that always seems to be the greatest distance away from me during Thanksgiving. Family. I miss being with my parents, my aunts, and my grandmother. This year especially though, I miss my grandfather. Though he wasn’t that vocal about this holiday in particular there was always a sense of peace given to sit and observe him while he ate his Turkey dinner and pondered many thoughts while staring out the kitchen window.

This Thanksgiving I became especially jealous of not being around my family. Mom uploaded photos to her facebook of the large Turkey dinner she cooked for her, dad and two of her friends. I set the photo that someone took of her and dad together behind the kitchen table full of food as my desktop background, now everytime I close a window I feel hungry and sad, haha.

Aaron and I drove out to Maidstone today, beautiful spot, though I don’t reccomend going there while the wind is strong and blowing off the water. That’s what it was like today; I discovered that there’s a majorly unpleasant smell of cow…..stuff. After a while you kind of get used to the smell, but to newcomers like Aaron and I..eghhh. It sucks trying to take photos through a car window too haha.

Here’s some photos anyway!
