Happy Thanksgiving! I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you and let you know how much I appreciate you. Thank you for your support and for the community you provide. Reading your comments here and on Instagram buoy me, in good times and in tougher moments.
I never feel like I’m sharing with strangers. This is my safe space and I have you to thank for that.
In a year where there have been quite a few challenges, this is always the place I turn to. You’ve made me feel like I’m never alone and I hope I’ve done the same for you.
You guys inspire me every day, and if I’ve ever inspired you just once, I am thankful.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
I hope you’re able to spend the day doing something you love with someone you love.
Fred Baby and I will spending our first Thanksgiving with this sweet furball and indulging in la dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing).
It’s a concept we’ve really tried to embrace after a season of life where we were always doing something and going somewhere.
And while we’re far from having mastered it, when we do, it’s amazing how much different life feels when we’re living in the present without any expectations. Perhaps give it a whirl this weekend, if you’re able?
There is SO much we’re grateful for and SO many people we’re grateful for. Being in our dream house with this little love bug is something we do not take for granted and we will be doing our best to simply soak it up.
I do, however, look forward to sitting down and finally writing many long overdue thank you notes to so many today. So many who made this dream of ours a reality.
On that note, wishing you a wonderful day of doing nothing with those you love xo!
p.s. This happiness-boosting habit might even beat gratitude.

Frances Anne Allen on page 212 of The American Mercury, May 1928 spoke of women who are— “DRUNK WITH SUCCESS OVER SHINING SARTORIALLY WITHOUT MALE COMPETITION, PRONOUNCED THEM SISSIFIED, AND PROMPTLY KILLED THE GENTLEMEN’S STRUGGLE TOWARD A RAY OF LIGHT.”
But then don’t forget the New York Times editorial, May 27, 1876, page 6, “A Curious Disease” calling for women in pants to be “treated with the usual methods in use at the best conducted hospitals for the insane.”
Wow. Presenting as a female monopoly a basic leg garment worn by men as well as women for thousands of years till so many men transitioned to the horseback riding trousers that people actually think skirts are female in the same sense that bras are. Women hollered for decades to be free to wear pants, next some men want to reclaim skirts, women act like enraged sow bears with cubs about their “monopoly.”
Absent the World War Two factory work, women in pants today would STILL be slammed as “cross-dressers.”
