Happy Thanksgiving, my beautiful friend. I hope that you find some joy and a little time for yourself today. And if perhaps a slice of pie (or two) comes your way, I hope that it’s your most *favorite* flavor, as life is too short for bullsh*t pie!
Holidays like T-day are often painted in movies, marketing and social media as this perfect picture of being with family and friends. While my hope for all of us is to have that warm, cozy, unconditional love surrounding us, I know that’s not always the case.
Some may need to go to work because they don’t have any other choice. Others may be having a difficult time managing relationships with people in their lives or are feeling lonely. It might not always be the ideal picture we have in our minds.
I don’t know if you’ll find it helpful, but when I’m experiencing what Connor and I like to call “BIG FEELINGS,” something that I’ve found useful is to write a list of glimmers, which are small pockets of joy. I usually just do it on my phone.
Anyway, our celebration this year is going to be super mellow. Just me, El Hub and Connor, along with a bunch of cracked crab drowned in butter, salt and lemon. There will be a movie or two, more living room dancing, snuggling with Rosie-Pose and several walks up in the mix as well.
It’s gonna be a great day. 🙂
Sending you good thoughts and well-wishes for the holiday, and just in case you need it, here’s a big hug from across the keyboard.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
