The Harmans Hit the Road for the Holidays

I don’t know about you, but even this early in November, I already have Thanksgiving on my mind. Last year when the triplets were just coming up on a year old, my wife Jen and I suspended our usual Thanksgiving travel plans in order to stay home with them. Instead of taking off to visit relatives, our family came to us, and our house practically had a revolving door through the holidays with so many loved ones coming and going. While I appreciated seeing everyone without having to leave home, I’m really looking forward to getting back to normal this year — or as normal as things can be with three adorable almost-2-year-olds in tow. Our plan is threefold.

“Looking around, I’ve realized that I couldn’t be a luckier man. I have a loving partner, three beautiful children, a supportive extended family, dedicated staff, and incredible clients who are willing to trust me with their troubles during some of the most difficult times in their lives.”

First, the week before Thanksgiving we’re going to fly to Iowa to visit Jen’s in-laws and catch a local football game in person. It’s our own little tradition to see a game while we’re there each November, and I can’t wait to climb back into the stands and cheer on our team in the crisp air. Next, for the actual Thanksgiving holiday, we’ll spend the day with my family here in North Carolina and do the classic turkey dinner. I don’t have a favorite Thanksgiving food — I just like to eat, so I eat whatever is there and, like most people, really overdo it! For me and Jen, the holiday is really all about the football. We block the whole weekend off to watch the games, and, if we didn’t have to get up and chase the kids from room to room, we might just camp out on the couch for the duration. Finally, the weekend after Thanksgiving we’ll hop in the car to visit Jen’s aunt and uncle, who live about 45 minutes away. All in all, there will be a good amount of time spent on the road and in the air this month, though the whole family has decided to come to our house for Christmas, so we won’t have to make the rounds a second time. Between both sets of grandparents,

Jen’s and my siblings, their kids, and Jen’s aunt and uncle, we’ll have a full house when it comes time to open presents. Do you have any advice for traveling with three 2-year- olds? If you do, I’d love to hear it. We’ll take any help we can get! Travel plans and football-related excitement aside, I’ve also been reflecting this month on the more serious meaning of Thanksgiving (and Christmas, too, for that matter): giving thanks for what we have. Looking around, I’ve realized that I couldn’t be a luckier man. I have a loving partner, three beautiful children, a supportive extended family, dedicated staff, and incredible clients who are willing to trust me with their troubles during some of the most difficult times in their lives. Without contributions from all of those people, I’d never have been able to fulfill my dream of running my own firm. In particular, I have to credit Harman Law’s success to my clients. If they — if you — didn’t trust in my experience and legal acumen, I wouldn’t be able to help nearly as many people as I do today. Know you’ll be in my thoughts this Thanksgiving, and, if there’s anything I can do to help you the way you’ve helped me, don’t hesitate to ask!
