So long November.....bring on December!

Share It:

November. You were pretty great! No....seriously....you were A-OK :) The weather finally turned cool and the AC went back into hibernation, and that's what really excited me! Yes, we did have some resurgence of warmer weather...but not so bad that we were miserable. We just had a great holiday that was all about good food and family and I bought a new car!!! Decorations for Xmas have come out and I'm starting to get pretty psyched for the next big holiday. I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping and this year, I'm doing a little tree instead of the big 7ft one I normally put up. Simplicity. That's my word for this coming month. It's always very hectic this time of the year and sometimes I've been known to get a little emotional/stressed/anxious. So, I'm trying to keep things as simple as possible! We'll see how that goes....

I hope December is everything you want it to be this year. May there be lots of love, laughter, sparkle and yummy foods. I hope you get to hang out with the people that you love most and maybe make a few new friends to start the new year with!

But most of all....I wish you peace. 

Stay Blessed,

Thanksgiving {A Recap}

Happy Thanksgiving....a couple days late! I hope you had a beautiful and blessed day. This year, my family convened at my sister and brother-in-laws house in Suffolk for a couple days. It was way laid back and relaxing. But most of all, it was about family. The older I get, the more I appreciate the important people in my life. I'm rather selective with who I choose to hang out with....preferring a quiet night in rather than a loud, rowdy party. It's just how I'm wired. And my family just gets me. It also helps that we all are on the same wave-length:) None of us are wild partiers and I love that about us.

Friday we opted for a day in Colonial Williamsburg instead of getting up at the crack of dawn and shopping for bargains. We took the ferry from Surry over to the Jamestown Settlement and from there we walked around for a few hours, soaking in the history and natural beauty of colonial times. I forget sometimes, that we live in an area full of rich history and in 2016 my goal is to see more of it again!

This is a pretty picture-heavy post....but there was just so much to shoot! I hope you enjoy and that you and your family had a beautiful holiday weekend. Next up.....CHRISTMAS!!!!
