My Husband, The Pilgrim

My husband is in the kitchen cooking our Thanksgiving dinner, an arrangement that makes both of us happy. He enjoys cooking, and I don't mind doing the food shopping or cleaning up afterwards. In fact, I wish we could divide up the tasks like this every night.

This year, for the first time, my husband also has some confirmation of his family lore, that he is descended from religious pilgrims who came to Massachusetts on the Mayflower. Through my genealogical research, I've determined he is, in fact, descended from at least six. Given how interconnected families became in the early days of Massachusetts, it's possible he's descended from even more.
