Here’s what Sarah posted on Instagram along with her family photo
Happy national stuff your face day from my from my family to yours. #firstyearhostingthanksgiving #grownup
In a recent interview Sarah had this advice for young girls who look up to her
Do what you love. Especially for teenagers, everything is not the end of the world, even though it feels like it is. I definitely thought it was, every single day. If a boyfriend broke up with me, or I didn’t get the perfect grade, I thought it was the end of the world. Life goes on.
Thanks for the great advice Sarah and we hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
