Thanksgiving at Heather and George’s house was wonderful, and as a bonus, it’s a gorgeous photo shoot location too!
Last year the holidays were an excruciating nightmare and while Thanksgiving was probably the least painful, it wasn’t a joyful day for me, being the first one without my mom and sister. This year I’ve been knee-jerk-reaction hating on the holidays, already resigned to being a depressed mess. So color me shocked to find that I was not depressed yesterday.
I was busy and had places to go and people to see, I was trying to be of service where I could, and thoroughly enjoying the company of my friends and adopted family. I spent a little time with my dad, and brother and sister in law and nephew (Thanksgiving isn’t really their bag), which was cool. I got to spend the morning with my kids before sending them off to their respective funfests, and took hilarious pictures of them for our Christmas card (typical outtake seen above). And most of the day I felt really…loved. Comforted. Un-alone.
That has not been a constant state of being for me lately. So I’m pretty damn thankful for it.
Hope you all had a great T-day, or simply a great Thursday, if that’s what it was for you yesterday.

You may recall my post a while back about my new fave site for women’s swimwear. I promised you bikini shots and I am a woman of my word! I am so stoked on my new Cole’s of California suit and I thank SwimsuitsDirect.com for the collaboration opportunity!
I’m going back to the site today to scoop up some more tankinis for Lola, who goes through swimsuits like nobody’s business and is PICKY like whoa—no one-pieces, no bikinis, TANKINIS ONLY. (sheesh!) Free shipping and free returns make it safe to buy for kids, who grow like weeds and are always variable in sizes depending on manufacturer.
So since global warming means swimsuit weather is barely starting in my neck of the woods (Southern California), go stock up at SwimsuitsDirect.com
