Editor’s Note: This is our Thanksgiving edition of Event Garde-ian of the Month!
Q & A with Tracy King, chief learning strategist, InspirEd LLC
Q: For what are you most thankful?
A: I am so thankful for my four beautiful children, family and friends – sharing love, laughter, good food and shenanigans!
Q: Are you a Black Friday shopper or sleeper?
A: Sleeper! I’m more of a Cyber Monday shopper.
Q: Which Thanksgiving dish do you most crave, and why?
A: Turkey, gravy and garlic smashed cheesy potatoes. I love to cook Thanksgiving dinner for my family and incorporate their favorite sides. These are our fundamentals!
Q: Tell us about one of your holiday traditions.
A: Our family likes to put up our Christmas tree Thanksgiving weekend, pulling out all of our favorite ornaments and the stories they represent. I pick up an ornament whenever we travel someplace special and each year I tuck an individualized picture ornament in my kids’ stockings. Our tree has become a photo album of memories celebrating our family.
Q: Looking ahead, what do you hope for 2016?
A: I hope to complete the first draft of a book I’m working on and take a “real” vacation!
