A non-Thanksgiving Post

Spending time with people you love, participating in traditions, eating tons of food. Pretty perfect, right? I, like many of you, love Thanksgiving. My husband and I are lucky enough to have two Thanksgivings each year. The first is celebrated on Thursday with his side of the family and our second feast is with my crew on Sunday. And, while there are so many gorgeous decorating ideas and presumptuously sumptuous recipes out there to try, I am just not feeling it this year. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so thankful for the chance to spend time with those I care about. But to be honest, the holidays are stressing me out. So, you may see posts in the near future about a fantastic cheese board I’m putting together or my continual journey to make the perfect pecan pie. But today, the day before thanksgiving, I’m simply sharing some photographs I’ve taken of street art. Because, a little distraction can be pretty nice during the holidays, and is certainly something for which I’m very thankful.

The five minute autumn wreath

Whew, it’s been a busy November! Full of new endeavors, like pursuing my real estate license, and new projects both here at home and the mountain house. Due to the long-term nature of these projects (painting the exterior of my house, winterizing the mountain house), I don’t know how many will turn into great blog posts, we’ll just have to wait and see. But, I definitely want to share this incredibly simple and inexpensive semi-DIY holiday wreath.
