A Thanksgiving Post

With Thanksgiving being only a few short days away (hooray for a short work week!), life is getting pretty busy.  Let's face it, we are all preoccupied with thoughts of hosting parties, traveling, accommodating guests, cooking, cleaning, outfit planning, manicures, pedicures, and where we are all drinking too much on Wednesday night. With all of these (exciting) plans, it's easy to focus less on what the holiday season is about and more about which sweater will match my leather leggings and the constant debate of whether I should wear my hair straight or wavy.  Yes, I'm super guilty of letting the little things take over, and right now I'm subconsciously stressing over where I put my favorite lipstick.  So...

With that being said, I wanted to write this quick post to let you all know that even though I am as distracted as the next person, I can't forget to say thank you for another year of loving me and loving this little blog.  Together, we have made so many of my creative dreams come true, and you've given me so much more than I ever asked for when I began writing and designing this space.  You've given me an outlet to vent, a diary to share my experiences, and you've given me a large amount of followers who at some point can all relate to the craziness that I call my life.  But more than all of that, you've all given me the the gift of confidence - confidence to speak about things I may have been once too timid to say, to make friends with complete internet strangers, and to finally finish writing my first book.  So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.  I love you all so much.

So, because I can admit I am an incessant, OCD, flip out if I can't find the ONE shirt I wanted to wear, will curse the day you were born if I'm having a bad hair day type of person, I'm glad I got a chance to tell you all how I feel.  Now, from today until next week, you can find me shopping, planning, preparing to host my first Thanksgiving, and getting super excited to spend the first November holiday with my sister and brother in law in so long -  boo for having a family that lives all the way in Tennessee, but yay for quick plane rides and a special sister bond that no amount of distance can ever break.  So again, thank you readers, thank you friends, thank you family, and thank you life for blessing me with so many beautiful reasons to be happy.

Love to love ya,
