What are your favorite family traditions during Thanksgiving? 
Focusing on gratitude for the whole month!   We love saying what we’re especially grateful for over dinner.  
What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish? To eat, to make?
I love my mom's sweet potato casserole! It’s basically a dessert😂.  I usually bake something from @elisabethandbutter 

What’s your go-to cocktail or mocktail this season? What will you be sipping on Thursday (11/26) night? 
A nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.  
How is your family adjusting Thanksgiving celebrations to life in 2020? 
My in laws are hosting it outside along the riverbank.  One long table, right next to the river.  My sister and I are in charge of the tablescape (:  

How do you get your kids excited about Thanksgiving and the holidays, particularly in quarantine? 
Our school really reinforces that gratitude is an attitude.  We are just so thankful to be together with our family right now.  It was difficult in March and April not seeing their grandparents, and so now that we do see them, they are just so thankful!

What is the role of gratitude in your life? 
I believe gratitude changes everything.  Whenever I’m stressed or upset, I really try to put it all in perspective.  Most of why I’m stressed is often a gigantic blessing. Work? Grateful to have it!  Figuring out a bday present for a child?  Thankful my kids make friends easily. What’s for dinner?! Thankful we have good food and the ability to cook it.

How do you teach gratitude to your children, particularly during these trying and confusing times? 
We make a point to sit down for dinner every night.  And we always ask the boys one thing they are thankful for.   Before bed we always begin our prayers with a thank you prayer to God.

Why is Mestiza your go-to for holiday celebrations?
Mestiza's designs make me feel like a million bucks!  Their dresses are beautiful and playful. I love wearing Mestiza!
