Happy Thanksgiving!

Gratitude is part of my every day.

I am thankful for my love of reading and writing that organically grew with training, time, effort, and interest into a beautiful career in editing.

And OK … I am truly grateful for long weekends, amazing hikes with family, and incredible meals. This is for the experiences themselves, sure! But do you ever notice the interesting signs around trails, when shopping, or instructions for cooking? Yeah … I love words.

What are some of our most favourite words we can come up with about fall, autumn, or Thanksgiving? Maybe ones like:

  • Cornucopia
  • Wishbone
  • Stuffing
  • Apple pie (why two words when it seems like such an institution?)

And then for my colleagues who have edited cooking books we realize there is a whole inherent language around different styles of cooking and baking. For example, not often would two apple pie recipes claim to be equal as they each employ their own unique blend spices and variety of apples.

So this holiday weekend EditAbove wishes you all of your favourite things, including a good (well-edited) book or word search puzzle if that’s to your liking.
