One of my favorite movies is Dan in Real Life. Call me idealistic, but I always dreamed of having a cabin in the woods, or preferably on the lake, that we’d gather at for the holidays.

P.S. When I updated this post recently, I remembered how lucky we were to have made that dream come true with our lake cottage. It’s such a joyful escape for us!

In the movie, the families came together for a few days to celebrate and spend their days doing yoga on the lawn, hosting a talent show and my favorite, a competitive crossword puzzle!

That’s what inspired me to create our own Thanksgiving crossword to help create our own traditions. I’m so thrilled to share with you today!

I’m offering a Thanksgiving crossword puzzle this year as a gift from me to you. I hope it helps you make memories with friends and families at this year’s Thanksgiving celebrations!
