Walking through the subway station on Thanksgiving morning, we were focused on warming up. Then I looked up and cocoa was forgotten for a bit. In front of me and down the hall was a spontaneous, beautiful display of art. Sure, some might not see art in Post-it notes, but I did. Beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder. A simple square of paper on its own is just that - a square of paper. Yet here, hundreds of squares in all colors, with words of hope, peace and love, became a work of art.
We paused for a bit to read the messages those before us had left. Some were in other languages. Others were just pictures. All were heartfelt. Somehow, simple Post-its had turned into a community art project in the Union Square subway station. For me, art isn't just something pretty to look at, but something that makes you feel. As Edgar Degas, one of my favorite artists, once said, "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." What I saw in that station was simply beautiful.

In 2011, I received what most 25-year-old women don't expect: an infertility diagnosis. I remember driving back to our house after that first meeting. Almost the entire car ride home, we drove in silence. It was really, really hard to wrap my head around the reality that we probably would never be able to get pregnant naturally.

My grandmother has been gone 25 years, yet I can picture Thanksgiving at her house like I was there yesterday. I can smell the turkey in her old gas oven you had to light with a match. I see her bustling about the kitchen with a smile on her face. I hear the train down the road and the laughter of cousins. I picture the china on the table; I remember where every family member sat. I feel the wooden chair under me. Pulling a seat up to my grandma's Thanksgiving table is one of my fondest memories and a most cherished gift.
Since then, I've pulled a chair up to Thanksgivings at my mom and dad's, my sister's, my sister-in-law's, a couple of restaurants and my own table. They've all been lovely, but those childhood Thanksgiving dinners still outrank them all because my grandparents and my mom had seats at that table. I miss them terribly every holiday.
This year, I'll pull my chair up to a new table - at a cool diner in Brooklyn, New York. My kid couldn't make it home this year so we're going to her. Given her tiny Manhattan sublet, cooking at her place isn't really an option. But, it's not like you can't find great food in NYC, so I think we'll be well fed.
