Joni HoffmanThanksgiving will be different this year, with many of us dining outside in smaller groups. My annual “it will only be a few people” dessert party will not happen. Like me, Penny Haber loves Thanksgiving, and she shares her beloved recipes in this issue. The Mandola family’s massive reunion – 400 strong – won't happen in 2020 either, but we got a peek into how this Houston-restaurant family pulls together their giant gathering. Brenda Koch and her husband, ABC13 news anchor Tom Koch, love traveling. For now, they are happy reflecting on favorite trips – and the “Tom spotting” from fellow Houstonians all over the world. We love it when Buzz readers share special stories with us. Mary Ann Reed’s discovery from a childhood treasure box – a POW bracelet from the ’70s – led our writer on a journey to discover others with powerful stories behind these bracelets. Even though I love bringing everyone I love together in one place, I am inspired to celebrate more simply this season. Wishing you all a safe and special start to the holidays. [email protected]
