Happiest Thanksgiving, friends!

It’s not just the turkey I’m excited about today, but the start of the holiday season as a whole! While I have definitely snuck in a few Christmas songs over the past month, I can never fully embrace the holiday spirit until we make it to Thanksgiving. Something about the festivities of today… my crazy loud family, the delicious food and that overall feeling of coziness… always manage to kick off the holidays on the best food foot possible.

*Leaving that typo in so you can see where my head is truly at. That legitimately just happened. Oops!

Speaking of kicking things off… how cute are the boots in today’s post? I picked them up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer, and am so excited to finally get tow ear them! Lately, I’ve been loving the look of tall boots paired with dresses. This look is perfect for a Thanksgiving meal. You’ll notice that dresses do not have tight waistlines or buttons, and the fitted cut of this one in particular makes it perfect for pairing with blanket scarves. And you know how I feel about anything caramel-colored… one of my absolute favorite neutrals!

There is so much I’m thankful for from this year… among my family, watching the Lord’s faithfulness play out in every season I’ve walked through, a wonderful home base here in Dallas and countless other blessings, you and this blog remain a huge gift I’m continually, continually thanking Him for. I adore each of you!

I’m wishing each of you lots of joy and full bellies on this beautiful day! After I consume half of my body weight, I’m so looking forward to throwing on stretchy sweatpants and a messy bun this evening and buckling down in bringing you the BEST. BLACK. FRIDAY. GUIDE. EVER. Be on the lookout for it to go live tonight at midnight!

    • Fantastic For 65 bucks, this little guy does a lot. Very user friendly. It is a bargain for an entry level yet fully featured head unit. Has a set of pre-outs for a sub but if you’re looking to run a 4 channel, I would suggest a unit with 3 pre-outs. All of the buttons feel nice and are very easy to read. Good stuff.
