Gratitude + Turkeys

Thankful for a good spot in life with a loving family (Cat included!), new and old friends, rediscovered hobbies, and a simple enjoyment of the day-to-day. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 

Turkeys hand-crafted by me and my School-Based Little Sis.

Earlier this week I was able to take a flex day and accompany my pal Rupa to a luncheon featuring  Grace Bonney, blogger extraordinaire and author of the new book Design*Sponge at Home! Grace was such an inspiration to keep on with the hobbies/talents/interests you love and continue to get out in the world and explore. By the way, Grace is ADORABLE and also has a cat. Need I say more?

The DIY section is the best, especially around Christmas time. Projects are categorized by difficulty, cost, materials and techniques. Craft away!

Fall in Richmond is glorious -- the days are pleasant and there's a morning bite in the air that makes a scarf a necessity.

This morning we made hot chocolate and sat outside to cheer on the Richmond marathon runners (the course passed right by our front door). "Good job, blue shirt! Keep it up, orange socks guy!" we shouted from the sidelines. "Moms everywhere are proud! You're going to remember this day forever! And hopefully in a good way!"
