happy thanksgiving friends! i know we say this every year but like…HOW?! HOW is it already almost the end of 2023?! thanksgiving truly is one of my favorite days out of the whole year and i’m so excited to eat some really yummy food, be around the people i love most, and take a few days to just unplug, relax, and reflect on how much i have to be thankful for.
as cliche as it might sound, i also just wanted to take a little pause from all of my black friday content haha – take a step back from all the sales and the christmas shopping etc etc and just let you guys know how truly thankful i am for each one of you. i have been doing this as my full time career for 9 years now, and still…at least twice a week every single week i have moments where i think ‘i can’t believe i get to do this for a living. that i have my dream job. and i get to do this every single day’. truly such a blessing and it’s 100% because of you guys and this incredible community we have built here!
i know some of you guys might have randomly found me on IG a few months ago (if so, HI!) and some of y’all have truly been around since day 1! like before i even got pregnant with shiloh day 1! i really believe time is our most valuable resource and the fact that you guys watch my IG stories, read my blog posts, take time to DM me or comment on photos or buy outfits that i share…it means SO MUCH to me and i honestly feel SO honored that you are here.
i genuinely LOVE what i do so much – i love getting to share outfits with you guys, or my skincare routine or a workout or anything that just makes you feel more inspired or encouraged or confident. i love getting to chat with you guys in DM’s about everything from what formula we are using to getting eyebrows tinted to my fave devotionals. i am SO dang thankful for this community of women who are striving to truly look and feel and be and show up as the best versions of themself everyday. and that i get to be a part of that journey for you. as an ‘influencer’ it can get so easy to get caught up in the numbers game or comparing who has more followers than who but at the end of the day….the fact that there are humans who watch my stories, read my blog posts, DM me or just CARE to be here is SUCH an honor and i will never be able to express how grateful i am for each of you!
i feel overwhelmed with gratitude this year for so many things – my baby girl lyla, our little family of 4 (5 including saylor), our health, and so much more. but i just wanted to also take a little pause to let each of you know how thankful i am for YOU! i pray you have a relaxing and life-giving thanksgiving with your family and that you’re able to take a moment to reflect on all you have to be thankful for!
