happy-thanksgiving Happy Thanksgiving to youuu! I hope you're warm & cozy today with your fam, eating well and celebrating like whoa.

This year has brought so many wonderful things to be grateful for. Exciting business things. Fun travel things. Great friendship things. I feel like this year has gone by at 800 miles an hour, so it feels good to devote a whole day to giving thanks... and eating pie.

What are you grateful for today? Raise your hand if it's pie with extra whipped cream... awww yeeeah.

P.S. The Be Happy linkup will resume next week! So get that happiness post ready, girrrl.

P.S.S. Are you ready for my ultimate holiday gift guide?! More deets coming soon. Get excited.

Happy Thanksgiving to youuuu! I hope you're settling in for a glorious day of eating with your fam.

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with the holidays. There's so much anticipation and expectation - I can't wait to play out the perfect vision of Thanksgiving I have in my head... but then it never goes down the way I think it will. The sisters are fighting or I burn the rolls (gah, the rolls! Easiest job ever)... and then the day is over in a flash.

I've learned over the years not to put so much pressure on the holidays. I can never predict how the day will go. The best thing I can do is just be there. Be a part of the conversation, the cooking, the wine-drinking (no prob); just be mindful of each moment. Take it in. Cuz it does fly by... best to just hang on for the ride and be fully present with my family, enjoying those magical fleeting moments. So I guess that means no instagram distractions, eh? Oh ok. Well maybe just one of pie...

Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
