I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday. My heart feels so full. I'm beyond blessed to have the love in my life that I do. I had such a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. I felt well! (Praise God!) I got to spend the day with my wonderful family wonderful husband. It was our first married Thanksgiving! At the beginning half of our day, we got to spend time with grandma and eat a special brunch with her! We then went back to my parents house and got to take a tiny nap, which I haven't done in so long and it felt amazing! My parents always make us feel so at home too. They had a sweet little Thanksgiving gift for us and some favorite treats. Then, we went to my aunt's house and I got to spend time with relatives that I've missed so much!! Her cooking is perfection and I'm so thankful for all of the yummy food that she made for us. I'm so thankful for the time I had with everyone. However, I miss my sister who is out west terribly!!! You were here with us in spirit, but Black Friday shopping will not be nearly as fun without you. The Thanksgiving festivities aren't over for us yet! Later this weekend we are heading north to celebrate with Fred's fam and we're super excited about that visit too! Be safe if you're traveling this weekend!
Now for my Black Friday shoppers...
I recently went to the Ohio Creative Collective Ho-Ho Holiday Gift Guide Event for local artists and bloggers. I had such an amazing time and I was inspired by all of the beautiful things being made in our state. It really got me in the Christmas spirit and there are so many gifts that I want to buy for my loved ones (and myself, can't deny it). I wanted to share with you some of the items that I got at the event and give you a sneak peak of the gift giving guide that I received. Hopefully, this will give you a ton of ideas for anyone on your list and put some Christmas cheer in your soul! Shopping local is a great way to support your community and celebrate the home that you love. <3
