Peppermint hot chocolate. The smell and warmth of a roaring fire. George Winston’s December Soundtrack. Flannels & scarves. Early morning coffee inspired writing. The sight of tree branches painted against the sky. Fall leaves and cute booties. Slippers and scented candles. Executing a much anticipated recipe in the kitchen while blasting a great Pandora station (Michael Buble anyone?). Moments of silence. Breakfast in bed. Christmas Wreaths and Festive Chicago homefronts. Fuzzy robes & bacon kind of mornings… Tea Time & a Good book. Cranberries and stuffing. Family jam sessions. And pumpkin pie galore…
HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND ONE DAY! Can you believe it has already come and gone? I’m in awe of the pace at which time seems to travel these days. Sometimes I wish I could take particular moments and slow them down. Like those gorgeous summer mornings spent golfing with my mom and sisters on the Chicago waterfront. Or strolling around a chilly Woodstock Vermont with Eric in celebration of our 2 year Anniversary.
I am thankful for SO MUCH this year. And I want to thank YOU for being here and following along. It’s been quite a ride. You guys are so supportive and I’ve loved reading your comments and receiving your feedback. And getting a sense of what you like ;)
I love the community of people I have met through blogging and all the wonderful friends I have made in Austin because of it. I’m thankful for my husband who has been cheering me on through the whole process and always asking me how it’s going, what I envision for it, and inspires me to follow my dreams! He’s kind of a rockstar.
I’m grateful for my tight knit family and all our dear friends. And I’d love to give a big shout out to all of you who have been following up and asking me about my brother Joe. It means everything to us that you inquire about him and he’s doing so much better. He’s still going to the doctor several times a week and has a lot of progress still to be made but he’s healthy, recovering, and in great company. And I’m beyond thankful for that.
I’d like to leave you with my favorite holiday music by George Winston (since I’ve mentioned it so many times before). Hope you are enjoying this festive weekend with someone you love. Thanks for reading!
