“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” — Henry David Thoreau
Dear Brothers and Sisters All,
As we embark on giving thanks this year, we’re keeping Thoreau’s quote in mind. Our year has been full of editing deadlines, recipe testing, food photography, and many other tasks that brought us Gourmet Girls to this much anticipated moment; our magnificent cookbook is in print! If we had known just what it was going to take to produce a cookbook, we may not have begun this endeavor, but we persisted and we’re thankful we did. We can actually hold our hard work in our hands! There is nothing quite like the feeling of seeing the physical manifestation of the fruits of one’s labor. And here is Gourmet Girl Seyburn doing just that!
We are so thankful for the support we have experienced from all of the Gourmet Girls, our friends, and family. We could not have reached this wondrous moment without each and every one of you.
So, as we sit down this year with our loved ones around bountiful tables, we would like to say THANK YOU! And Happy Thanksgiving!
As Erma Bombeck once wrote: “Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not a coincidence.”
We couldn’t resist ending with a bit of humor … a good antidote to chaotic holidays!
Denise, Gail and Lindsey
