Postcard of the Week: Thanksgiving

DSC_6784 2.jpg

Wishing all my American readers a peaceful and happy holiday. I’ve been so busy here in Belize, that I almost forgot about it!

Giving thanks is part of my daily routine, but it’s always wonderful to gather with your loved ones. I will miss my family this year, but I’m thankful for my friends in Belize who have and are making my stay that much more wonderful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
