Okay, you guys. Thanksgiving week is here. I know I say this every year, but HOW?! It was just Halloween and before that it was the 4th of July and we had just moved to New York City and how does time seem to disappear, just like that?
The seasons are flying by as we’ve already begun to say goodbye to my absolutely favorite one. The weather went from Fall to Winter in a matter of hours this weekend. Saturday was gorgeous, sunny, and warm. Too warm, I say. I should not be sweating in November but this is just a personal rule, I suppose. It really was gorgeous, though. When we woke up Sunday morning? It was gray and freezing with gusts between 30-40 MPH. Somehow I was happier with that? (Especially when our first snow flurries of the season showed up that night.) Although, I was much happier once I bought that coat up there, thankyousoverymuch. I don’t know how you stay warm AND look cute when the wind knocks the breath right out of you and pins and needles are threatening the feeling right out of your face.
It just feels like holidays now, I guess! Lights are going up all around town. Columbus Avenue is adorned with large, bright snowflakes that light up at night giving my neighborhood some small-town charm. I’m all for that holiday feeling these days. Unapologetically listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas movies early because 2016, man.
On that note, I was hoping to get out of this year of loss and heartache (2016 has been one for the books) personally unscathed, but I received some tough news as I was writing this post. Prayers for my family would be greatly appreciate, my friends. Thank you!
