IN MY LIFE
I hope you all had an AMAZING Thanksgiving! I know this time of year can be tough for those of us who have lost loved ones, but I pray you were able to focus on the present and choose joy wherever you were yesterday.
Thankfully, we made it home safely after 15 hours in the car on Saturday. Even though that was crazy, I am SO glad we had all day yesterday to unwind, unpack, do laundry, grocery shop, and do what we needed to do to get ready for today.
We also got to experience Cheekwood Lights last night, which was a beautiful mile-long loop of Christmas lights and bedazzlement. It runs through January 1 and it was such a fun and enchanting way to get in the Christmas spirit. FYI – both the hot chocolate and apple cider were DELISH and wonderful to hold in the cold while walking 😃
