  • It’s been a long week, but there’s nothing that a little coffee and relaxation can’t fix, right? ☕️❤️
~
Happy weekend, friends! ✨
  • There’s just something about this time of year.
✨
The twinkle of the Christmas tree, flames from all of the delicious candles dancing around, a hardy homemade dinner baking in the oven — and the subtle sense that a new beginning is just around the corner.
✨
Yes, this time of the year is my favorite. And I hope that I won’t take a single moment of it for granted 🎄
  • Sunday nights mean lighting a few candles, and curling up with a hot beverage, snuggled up next to my hubby. It really is the little things. ☕️🌿
_____
What’s your favorite Sunday evening ritual? ✨
  • THANKFUL.
✨
Our life has been anything but conventional. Getting married at 19 and 20, multiple cross-country moves, embracing our little family of two knowing that we should be a family of three and chasing a toddler around right now.
✨
But as unpredictable as our journey’s been, I am so thankful for this man and the life we’re building together. Here’s to the lifetime of Thanksgivings we have ahead of us, handsome ❤️🦃
  • We had our first snow of the season, our Christmas tree is up, and I’ve switched to drinking hot coffee — ‘tis the season, y’all! ☕️❄️
~
We’re headed out to the grocery store to shop for Thanksgiving this week. It’s just Craig and I this year, but it’ll be my first time putting together Thanksgiving dinner, so wish me luck! 🥘🦃
~
What’s on your turkey day menu, friend? ❤️
  • Stand firm; hold fast.
✨
This season I’m learning to come back to the basics and focus on my foundation. For me, this starts with gratitude.
✨
When chaos inevitably breaks loose, taking a few moments to count my blessings has made all the difference.
