It’s a little bit strange to be writing a Thanksgiving recap post when you’re in the middle of summer and thinking about buying your flights for your next Thanksgiving. Since I moved to California, I’ve spent every Thanksgiving in Orange County except for my first. This year, Kevin got to join me! It meant that we could rent a car and do a little bit more exploring. I’ve always had family in this area, but my perception of Orange County has been through their eyes. I quite enjoyed venturing out a little bit, but also frequenting some favorite spots like my favorite Vietnamese restaurant and South Coast Plaza.
For the gram, we checked out Noguchi Gardens in the middle of a business complex. It jumped on my radar when I had noticed some wedding photography there and I just had to see it in person. The Anaheim Packing District was also a huge hit for me. Lately, I’ve been a fan of food halls in other cities because you just get to sample so much variety in local flavor.
