I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays. A few years ago we opted to start staying home instead of running all over all day. It’s been such a wonderful change of pace and we’ve started a few traditions that we look forward to each year.
Starting with pie for breakfast! I would say the kids look forward to it, but I think I look forward to it just as much!
Next is getting to surprise the kids with a new ornament on their dessert plate right before dinner is served.
After we ate this year we crafted. Painting some unfinished nutcrackers and making salt dough ornaments. You may have seen a bit of this on my Instagram Story.
Later that afternoon we made a round around the park and grabbed a photo of us all via self timer and had a fight with the fallen leaves. I’m soaking up these simple yet special times.
Cheers to you!
Having words of wisdom and/or encouragement around the house is something important to me. Not only does it inspire me to be my best, I am hoping to influence my children as well. With more than just the spoken word, but the unspoken message in the frame.
Here is our latest print for the dining room.
“Bless the food before us,
the family beside us,
and the love between us.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
This past weekend we kicked off another dance season. This year doing slightly more than the last, including adding a solo. One of the first events we attend is NUVO dance convention, where Blair takes classes from some of the top professionals in the dance industry. Then in the evening she gets to compete her solo in her age group. This is the first time for her to have a solo and to perform it in a competitive environment. We were excited for her to place with a High Gold status and win 3rd overall in her age group! It was certainly a confidence booster for her and a great way to start off the year!
I’m not a photographer. But I like to pretend every now and then. So when my best gal pal of more than 10 years asked me to take family photos for her I couldn’t resist. They are the best!
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for this girl and her sweet family!
There were so many great ones, but these are a few of my favorites!
