I am looking very forward to this. Happy Valentines Day!
There are times when we struggle with finding meaning from our jobs. I found this amazing blog the other morning that really helped me process what I have been feeling.
Check out our website to see these gorgeous leather handbags. Lots of love and craftsmanship goes into each and every one of them! Happy Holidays!
Tomorrow will be the fourth year that I will celebrate Thanksgiving with a family other than mine. I thought that the first time would be sad or scary, because I was in New York, but it was actually one of my favorites because I spent it with my best friend Anna Adams and her husband Sam.
We were all really new to the city, so we decided to go to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. My sister and I would watch it on TV every year, so getting to see it in person was great. There must have been thousands of people. Crowds for days! Even though it was exciting to see Kermit the frog and Big Bird, once was enough for me.
Once we made it through the crowds back to the train, we grabbed a slice of pizza. We had been up since about 7:00 that morning and were starving. A few hours later, it was time for the actual dinner. Anna and Sam cooked some fantastic food, including a to die for, made from scratch apple pie. Best pie ever Anna!
The highlight of the day was taking a walk down to the river at sunset. The weather was just a little chilly, shades of orange and pink danced on the water and the streets were empty (which was a nice change from earlier in the day). It made me realize how blessed I was to have Sam and Anna in my life.
Sometimes we think that Holidays aren’t the same because we aren’t at home. But if we surround ourselves with happiness, it doesn’t matter if we are home in Alabama or in a small apartment in New York.
up until this week, i didn’t really know who frank ocean was. then last night he was on snl and performed the second part of ‘pyramids’. all of my questions about him were answered. he is a genius.
