• month of thanks

    It's starting to freak me out how quick the holidays are flying by. I think being busy with triple the amount of work than normal might have something to do with it, but i always say the busier the better!

    despite the time flying, i truly love thanksgiving and the entire month of it. this is partly why the holiday season is so magical - everyone is a little more aware of each other, families gathering more than normal, cooking really freakin' good food, service... y'all know the list can go on. since i've barely kept my head above water in the work world, i finally took a second to take in the true meaning of thanksgiving, breathe and remember to count my blessings. i am more than grateful for my loving husband who deals with my crazy, messy self and fully embraces every corner of me. i'm not a diva, but i'm pretty headstrong and stubborn at times. so thank goodness for the human being who chose me for eternity and completed my soul. and with that, i'm thankful for family. i was raised in a quiet, country neighborhood with loving parents and siblings - and now, as i start to grow my own family and hope to engrave the same thoughtful characteristics my parent's taught me as a young girl. there is a lot of bad in this world, but there is far more good when you think to remember these small blessings. anyways... enough sap for now ;) 

    as we all know, table scapes are a huge part of my family traditions each year. as i've gotten older, i've become more apart of creating these decorations and realizing how much work go into them! every one in my family loves to create artistically in some sort of way, so this type of work is way more fun to me {and my southern belle mama} than it might sound to you. my husband could not care less about things like this, so he just kicks back, let's me do my thang and enjoys the pie. the best kind of husband there could be :) haha! and speaking of pie, i have two of my mom's famous chocolate pie to make for tomorrow's feast - time to get back to work!

    happiest thanksgiving to you and yours. i hope everyone gathers around their loved ones this week and stays away from all the scary business going on at the malls on black friday... bless your soul for whoever decides to brave those crowds!
