Nine Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas: From Dressy to Comfy

Hi friends! Thanksgiving is approaching SO quickly and I can't wait. I love this holiday for how low-key it is (aside from all the cooking). It is always refreshing during this hectic time of the year to have time with family when you reflect on all the good things in your life, exercise gratitude and have fun together. This Thanksgiving we'll be taking a few family photos for our Christmas card, and I am still not totally sure what I'll wear yet -- anyone else get this indecisive?? But, I've been trying on lots of different outfits and tried on a few new things recently. So, today I'm sharing Thanksgiving outfit ideas ranging from dressy to casual and comfy.

My Journey with Work Boundaries

Let's talk about boundaries. I've heard and seen the topic of setting work boundaries come up a lot in the past few years. It's funny to think about when I entered the workforce, how the thought of "setting boundaries" was almost unheard of. Was it because fewer people were glued to their phones and taking work home with them? Was it because we know better now? Maybe it is a combination of these factors. What I do know is that somewhere in between getting married, going through a pandemic and having a child, setting work boundaries became not just something to strive for, but a necessity. I brought up a real example of my coworker's work boundary (see the email signature below) on Instagram recently, and it sparked A LOT of comments from you all. So, today I am sharing those and more about my journey with work boundaries.

Our Fall Road Trip & Things to Do in the Berkshires

A few weeks ago Will and I went on a road trip to the Berskshires, in western Massachusetts, for my birthday weekend. Just before my birthday, we celebrated Liam's first birthday. So, it felt like an extra good time to celebrate getting through that first year of parenthood and have some time for just the two of us. I'm so grateful to my mom and aunt who watched Liam that weekend - it truly was the best gift! Our road trip into the Berkshires felt like a trip back in time. You know the time.. when people didn’t have phones attached to their bodies at all times. The Berkshires or “the shire” as locals call it, it is a place to come relax and enjoy nature. And while you can visit year round, going in the fall seemed like the perfect time since New England is known for their fall foliage. We spent a good part of our road trip taking it easy and relaxing, so I wasn't surprised that we didn't get to everything on my list of things to do in the Berkshires. Since I would like to go back eventually, and some of you shared some recommendations, I wanted to share all the details with you.
