The Golden Year

Tomorrow, while the rest of the country is celebrating Thanksgiving, I will be celebrating a little something extra: my birthday. Every few years I find myself sharing my special day with this national holiday, but I'm really okay with it. Admittedly it annoyed me growing up. No cupcakes at school on the day of. No friends free to celebrate. Parties either had to happen one to two weeks earlier or later, so when my actual birthday had gotten there my friends were unaware. But that was a selfish heart feeling.

As I get older I can appreciate sharing my birthday with America's special holiday. Just think, on MY birthday people across the country will be gobbling up their favorite meals, spending time with family, and most importantly they'll be giving THANKS for all of their blessings. I'm good with that.

Did you know that a Golden Birthday is one in which the age you are turning matches the day you were born? Tomorrow will be my Golden Birthday, and the start of a Golden Year. I'm pretty sure that wishes come true on Golden Birthdays so it's my wish (as I blow out the candles on whatever dessert we have with our Thanksgiving meal this year) that we remain thankful throughout the next 365 days, and every 365 days after that. Don't limit it to one day.

Wishing you and yours the very best day.



Today's look features a particularly amazing item from a company you're sure to know. My awesome new friends at SPANX sent me the loveliest gift in the form of a selection of their new products and I am OBSESSED. We all know of the SPANX shape wear, but have you seen the SPANX faux leather leggings?! These things are incredibly comfortable but more importantly, they're incredibly flattering! Between us girls they smooth and lift in just the right places. Definitely worth checking out.

I paired my leggings with a fun bell sleeved tunic, gray booties, and the ever popular felt hat.

But enough about me, how are you babes celebrating tomorrow? What are you most looking forward to? Have any specific questions about SPANX products? I have officially tried all of the new things and am more than happy to share a little knowledge! Let me know in the comments and remember, wear what you love but LOVE who you are!
