Hi Hi, loves! Hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day, surrounded by all your loved ones, filling your bellies with yummy food & taking a moment to give thanks for all things good - from big to small - in your life. I cannot believe the holiday season is upon us and 2015 is nearly over! I have so much to be thankful for this year and feel so blessed to have my health & a life filled with an abundance of love & happiness!
I had a super low-key & relaxing day that started with a little pre-turkey yoga and then headed straight to my parents house to spend the day with the fam. Dinner was delicious as always, full of all the yummy dishes I look forward to eating every year!
I'm happy to be here in Raleigh with Adam and his family to spend the rest of the holiday weekend!!
