As the workweek comes to a close, I’m counting down the hours until family arrives from out of town, wrapping up emails and getting ready to shut down my laptop in favor of unhurried hours spent talking around a blazing fire. Now’s the time to transition into the holiday mentality and focus on the things that really matter. This “Friendsgiving” feast, hosted by Lauren Ledbetter and Brad & Jen of Q Avenue Photo, is the perfect inspiration – a gathering of good friends in a natural setting, with platters of abundant, seasonal food. Click through for the gorgeous images, the spot-on party playlists and a pecan pie recipe that needs to be on your menu tomorrow.
Like each of the boards that we crafted into place from a different pallet, none of the friends we brought to the table knew one another. Different people, different stories, all coming together for the purpose of giving thanks.
