Thankful

Thanksgiving can be a difficult time for many. For me, it brings back some tough memories and even more bittersweet memories of the people I’ve lost. This year, I have decided to use the holiday season as a time to purge all toxicity from my life and focus on the things that mater most.

Working in retail and living away from family, I don’t get to celebrate Thanksgiving in a traditional sense. But I have come up with my own traditions and I still take time to be Thankful for the blessings in my life.

I am so fortunate to have people that lift me up rather than hold me back. I am blessed to have such an amazing support system of loving people. I am thankful for family that is willing to drive 2.5 hours to eat breakfast with me before driving back for their own Thanksgiving meals. I live and own a home in a community that supports the arts. I have my health, comfort, and my faith. I. Am. So. Thankful.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving and the start to a joyful, happy, and healthy Holiday season!

Here are a few photos of my fall decor this year!

My favorite fall candle! Leaves from Bath and Body Works. I love it paired with my burlap table runner and a few sparkly pumpkins I picked up from Hobby Lobby a few years back.

I also brought back my favorite fall centerpiece as seen as seen last year.

There is just something about Sunflowers in September. I am in love with the warm colors in this arrangement. I snagged this pretty bouquet from my local flowers market for half off!

You also have a sneak peek at some changes to my entryway area. I hope to share some of these new additions with you soon!
