Happy Thanksgiving and Tweetsgiving 2008

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last year I was waking up in a cozy room with frosted windows that looked out onto snow-covered streets while the warm aroma of a roasted turkey dinner embraced me and my Hawkeyes sweatshirt.

We were lucky enough to celebrate Thanksgiving with family in Iowa last year and unfortunately due to so many big events happening around town today, John wasn’t able to take time off to have a mini Thanksgiving at home with me – let alone a dinner at home since he’ll be working into the wee hours of the morning.

As a result, I’ve been following Tweetsgiving. How it works: Tweet “Thanks” to @4thanks, then make a donation in honor of anything you’re thankful for. Spread the gratitude by following @Tweetsgiving on Twitter and pass along information about the cause. $10,000 has been raised for charity over the last 48 hours by people all over the world coming together (virtually) in this way.

We’re hoping to get back to John’s hometown later this holiday season but for now, I’ll do my best to whip up a nice home-cooked meal (and some margaritas to boot) as John and I will have our own Bollwitt Thanksgiving tomorrow.

I’d like to wish all of our friends and family south of the border a very happy Thanksgiving. Please know that although we cannot be with you, we’re thinking of you and will do everything we can to get back and see you very soon.
