Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving makes me think of food, family/friends, and more food.

Thanksgiving makes me think of food, family/friends, and more food.

That is a happy thought overall and one that comes only once a year, so make it count. My advice is at some point over the holiday meal set the turkey leg to the side, wipe your mouth (get that gravy in your beard), get everyone’s attention and thank them for putting up with you this year. Might be seem odd coming from nowhere but deep down it will mean a lot to them, or it might throw them off but it does cover your bases and you can eat guilt free.

Have a safe trip to wherever you are going and Happy Thanksgiving from RVA.

Designed the first brand for the Richmond’s First Fridays Artwalk and promoted the citywide “RVA” brand before the city adopted it as the official moniker. I threw a bunch of parties. Printed a lot of magazines. Met so many fantastic people in the process. Professional work: www.majormajor.me
