Happy Thanksgiving to my American peeps! To my Canadian friends, I am thankful for your friendship & support!
Growing up, Thanksgiving was always one of my favorite holidays. It wasn’t because of the food, but because of family. I’m the youngest of 4 children, and the other three are all 10 years older than me.
As a kid, I was essentially an only child. The holidays were special for me because that’s when my brother’s and sister would come home to visit all at the same time. And because they were so much older, they were married and had families to bring along too!
Mom would get up at 3am to prep and start cooking the 20lb turkey that would feed over 20 people. She would bake pies and the house was warm and smelled wonderful.
In the afternoon when everyone arrived, I would be so excited! We’d hang around in the living room watching college football. After the huge dinner, we would gather around the table and play a game; trivial pursuit, clue, zilch, uno, whatever was popular that year. These are the memories I hold deep in my heart.
In 2019, my husband and I don’t live near any family out here in Colorado. My son and his family are in Nevada, my sister is in Washington, my brothers in California as well as my husbands family.
And as we all know, Thanksgiving can be a hectic and busy day with travel, cooking, watching football...it’s easy to forget to send out that email to wish everyone a happy turkey day.
Have you ever dropped your phone in the sink, the pool or… somewhere else we won’t openly admit? Do you back up your iPhone to iCloud or iTunes?
What would you do if suddenly you lost all of your contacts? I would hide in a corner and cry. Remember back in “the day” when you lost your address book? Yep, you had to call mom to get a “back up” of all those addresses!
The method I’m about to outline will work for both Mac users and PC users with iPhones. If you have an Android phone, I promise I won’t leave you out, next week’s article is about Android phones.
