I hope everyone had a restful Thanksgiving and enjoyed time with friends and family. It’s always important to reflect on what we’re thankful for, and without being too cliche, I honestly feel like Thanksgiving couldn’t have fallen at a better time this year. My parents have never failed to support me but have really been there for me in more ways than I can count over the past few weeks, and I’m so grateful for their love and wisdom. My sister is home from college and gearing up for the home stretch of the semester before studying abroad starting in January, so I’m glad we had some time to catch up despite her heavy homework load (how did we ever do it in college?!). Today and tomorrow I’m seeing a few close friends of mine who are in town for the holiday, which will be a blast! In a few weeks, I’ll start my new job (I’ll be working in higher education, and I can’t wait to get started in my new role), and I’m excited for what’s to come on that front. I hope your long weekend has been just as enjoyable so far and that you can reflect on some of the positive people in and aspects of your life in the midst of what has certainly been a chaotic year for many.
Instead of braving the crowds and chaos this Black Friday, check out some of these amazing deals that you can shop from home. Knock out some holiday shopping, then unplug, spend time with a loved one, and enjoy a work-free Friday! I also wanted to share some of the professional shots that I had taken of my upstairs, which hopefully will let you get an even better sense of the space.
