Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Because I’ve been overwhelmingly busy this season with work & web design classes, I have not had 2 seconds to blog. But I still wanted to continue on my annual tradition of pausing and reflecting on what I am grateful for this year.
This year my calendar was full of trips to see family and friends, including visits to Seaside, Emerald Isle, Seattle, Atlanta, Charleston, and more. I am thankful that I am able to take these trips, get a break from city life, and see the ones I love.
I am so grateful for my wonderful family who temporarily adopted Tilly and sent me countless Snapchats when I missed her.

In 2014 I moved into my own “big girl” apartment, which is not so big at a mere 500 square feet. I am grateful that living alone can be checked off my to-do list. Don’t be alarmed by the photo above – that is not of my apartment, but of my next door neighbor Cathy, the National Cathedral.
This year has made me thankful for technology. The kind that allows you to stay sane by spying on your crazy dog, work from home once a week, and have monthly book club discussions with girlfriends spread far and wide.
This summer my middle sister, Devan, made the long trip to Australia where she will be nannying for 1-2 years. I’m thankful she was first able to spend time with me in DC, just us sisters, before she left. It was part 1 of my not-so-subtle “Operation Move Devan to DC Post-Australia” campaign.
