Remember how I was looking forward a couple of weeks ago? Well, here’s how some of that turned out!
Last week, J & I hosted our first big holiday, Thanksgiving. We had 11 people (and only 10 place settings. Oops). Man, hosting a holiday is a lot of work. J did so much, and was an awesome sous chef. Everything went extremely well. No turkeys exploded, no one got sick, no drama. The only downside was the beautiful confetti I decorated the table with was all over the floor by the end of the night. My family is all adults, yet act like children. That’s why I love them.
My beautiful table, pre-spilled wine and flinging leaves.
Fried turkey goodness.
Yesterday, J & I celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We had a beautiful wedding, and, more importantly, a beautiful marriage. We’ve had our share of troubles, but through it all, he never fails to make me laugh, or at least roll my eyes. There’s no one I’d rather have by my side.
A few of my favorite pictures from that day:
Me in my cape. My mom made it, and I loved that thing, even though it was 55 degrees and I didn’t technically need it!

Onward & upward!
