With A Thankful Heart

Yesterday was June 1st. I'm sure of it. Then I blinked and suddenly we're a week away from Thanksgiving. How did that happen?! In the spirit of this (my second favorite) holiday, I thought I would share with you a few things I am thankful for, as well as a look that's perfect for your Thanksgiving Day plans.

Though this list could go on forever, I promise to limit it to the most important.

Today and every day I am thankful for...

-the parents who raised me, who provided more than I needed, who pushed me to be the best I could be and supported my dreams as wild as they were; the sister who supported me, who was my very first best friend, who has laughed with me, cried with me, fought with me, and stood up for me; the extended family who have remained close in spite of miles, who were the village that it took, who spoiled me more than I deserved.

-my oldest and best friends who have stood the test of time, who feel more like family than friends, who can't get rid of me even if they tried, who call me first with big news, who I call first with big news, who know that long-distance is no big deal as long as funny text messages and Timehop shares are sent at least once a week; my newest friends who have made a big move so much easier, who have so quickly become my daily texters, who want to be an active part of my life in and outside of work, who have reminded me how fun and therapeutic a Girls' Night Out can be.

-my other half who makes life better, who keeps me laughing, who has been my constant in times of turmoil, who supports my ambitions, who celebrates my successes, who shares my dreams, holds my hand, kisses my forehead, and sends me Goodnight texts.

-this charmed life that I lead.



Today's look is my pick for Thanksgiving attire. It's feminine, casual, and unbelievably comfortable! This outfit is proof of just how "neutral" neutrals really are! A soft as can be sweater dress by Cherish in mocha, complimented by a beige leather and canvas drape jacket by Esley  with dark chocolate riding boots by Kenneth Cole and a brown tote handbag. I had to add a pop, however, picking my favorite color (Green) in a beaded stone necklace.

What about you, babes? What are YOU rocking for Thanksgiving? Have things you're thankful for? Share them with me in the comments below! I just adore hearing from my readers. But that's all for now. As always, wear what you love, but LOVE who you are.
