A Quiet Thanksgiving for Three

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving week finally is here, which marks the official start to the holiday season. I, for one, am pretty excited to stuff my face Thursday, which calls for an outfit that consists of leggings and an oversized tunic to hide the temporary weight gain – the holidays only come but once a year, right? And, since I will be holed up in the house for the duration of the day, a pair of cozy socks and slippers are essential.

This will be the first time in my almost-27 years of life that I won’t be spending Thanksgiving with extended family on my side or Ryan’s side, but since Ryan has to work until the early afternoon we knew it was best if we just stayed home and celebrated the holiday as our own little family unit (Finley included!). As a young married couple with no kids yet in the picture, it can be difficult to lose sight of the fact that your significant other is now your immediate family above everybody else – I am determined this holiday season to put Ryan first and enjoy all the festivities as husband and wife and as a solid, growing family.

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
