a thaaaanksgiving

Tuesday, December 3

I flew back into Nashville last night and hit the ground running- back to work after a full week off [I wasn't supposed to have a week off, but due to a deathly illness, I did!]

I didn't know for sure that spending Thanksgiving at home was in the budget for me, nor what combinations of my family would even be at home (5/9, if you like numbers).

I'll save the rest of the cliches for my journal and just say; thankful that I like my family as much as I do. Thankful I got to see some of my best girls (and miss the other two!). 

Maybe it took moving away to realize that home never gets old. NorCal in my <3 forevs!

Saturday night I got to hang with Katie, Steph, & my sisters. I kept saying "I feel like it's my birthday party!" Which got seriously misconstrued and I got made fun of, but I meant because I was hanging out with almost all my favorites on this earth.

Ok, this is a fun & crazy time of year. Though if I were still in school, life would end in about a week when finals were over. As an adult, I'm taking an extra push to make it to the next holiday! Crazy times indeed. I'm off to the Preds game tonight! Thanks for reading, friends!

It sounds like you had a great holiday back in NorCal! I don't realize how much I miss it until I go back for Christmas. Glad you had such a nice time and got to see so many loved ones :)

You guys look so cute in the group pic! I also love myself a game of Apples to Apples, or the wonderfully wicked Cards against Humanity.
