Turkey Day 2018


It’s Thanksgiving, y’all! This morning I woke up and immediately geared up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with the fam. After eating a little breakfast and hanging out, I bundled up and headed out for my own turkey trot because I didn’t even think about signing up for one until yesterday. But let me tell ya, it was cold out there and the wind was making the jog 10x harder than it needed to be.

Once I got back home Reese and I got dressed, and did our hair and make-up. She borrowed a sweater from Bittersweet Boutique and jeans from American Eagle. Her slip ons were Steve Madden! Reese has the most beautiful, long, blonde hair so whenever she asks me to style it for her I get so excited. We threw it up in this high ponytail to show off the open back of the sweater.

My sweater is sold out but I’ll link a similar one here. I grabbed this velvet J. Crew skirt at TJMaxx for $12.99. It was originally $79.50. Major steal. My over-the-knee boots are Sam Edelman and my polka dot tights are Target. Nothing like a budget-friendly outfit.

It wouldn’t be a Thanksgiving Day blog post if I didn’t share what I’m most thankful for—

  1. My Sweet Jesus whose love and grace is unending.

  2. A full year of my dad being cancer free.

  3. Year #2 of Making Joy and Bliss.

  4. The river house in Solomons Island. A place where we can all come together to recharge.

  5. The family I nanny for.

  6. Plans I make that unexpectedly change for the better.

  7. My girlies that I met through LU’s school of education.

  8. Lululemon.

I cannot thank y’all enough for following me along by reading Making Joy and Bliss. This space is such a blessing and I love sharing with you. Love love love y’all.
