Thankful Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I love this holiday-it's close to the other big holiday, so it feels very similar, yet there's not the stress of gift buying & giving. This year, we're continuing our family tradition of going to VT with our family friends. We'll be heading up to Manchester, VT tomorrow, and I can't wait. It's absolutely gorgeous up there this time of year! 

We'll be cooking dinner tomorrow and then heading out to the outlets for Black Friday- I can't wait!! So far, it looks like Kate Spade, J. Crew, and Vineyard Vines are all having huge sales-YAY! 

Lately, I feel thankful for so many things....

1.) Seeing friends and family who all have their health and are in good spirits.

2.) Driving around and seeing decorated houses-those icicle lights get me every time!

3.) Being part of special traditions that hold so much meaning to me. 

4.) Having close family nearby to share the holidays with.

5.) Starting the Christmas decorations!! 

6.) Oh and Rod Stewart's new Christmas album- love :) 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And good luck, if you're like me and are braving the crowds on Black Friday!!

Jackie & Alec: Festive Fall Wedding!

This past weekend, I was so blessed to share in my cousin Jackie's big day as one of her bridesmaids!  The weekend was filled with lots of family, from near and far. Some of her husband's family members hail from England and Australia. We had a great time getting to know one another and sharing in the joy of the event. 

Check out some of the pics from the big day:

Cheers Jackie & Alec!! 

Wishing you many years of laughter & love!

My 100th Post!!!

I can't believe this little ol' blog has gotten to 100 posts! I started this over a year ago as a way to keep friends and family in the loop. Along the way, I've met some great people and incredible bloggers who have inspired me to keep writing. No matter how silly or mundane I think something in my life is, it's a part of my life. It's a memory and I've documented it.

 It's fun to look back at past posts and see where I was in my life at that point. I'm glad that years down the road, I'll have something to look back at and show my kids.
 I'm glad that blogging is something I enjoy doing and something I find fun. 
I know I can only improve and I look forward to what's to come...

For now, I'll leave you with some pictures of my two favorites in the world :) :) 

Thanks for reading!!
