Black Friday

I am currently still laying in bed with a cup of hot coffee laughing at all of Patrick’s family snapchats from our post-feast dance party (his aunt even made a geo-tag..hehe). It was such a fun night with his Nana, Aunts, Uncles and cousins. The only thing missing was my family!

But back to the real reason you are on your computer today…today is BLACK FRIDAY! Woo hoo! I have browsed my favorite shops and rounded up a few of the best sales out there and some must-have picks for everyone in your family!

“If there was ever a time to do it , to make a different in your life, to embark on something worth doing, it is not. Not for any grand cause, necessarily, but for something that tugs at your heart, something that’s your aspiration, something that’s your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. Have Fun. Dig Deep. Stretch your mind. Be determined and Dream Big.” – Anonymous

First off, I wanted to say THANK YOU for all the kind words, emails and texts about yesterdays post. Y’all sure know how to make a girl feel special.  I had such extreme anticipation for the announcement, not only because I was excited to start sharing our wedding more on the blog (since really this space is just an extension of my real life), but because I felt like it was a milestone in a long journey. I have been blogging for 5 years and yesterday was one of those moments that reminded myself why I love this space so much.

I have always had a flaw, we all have them, and sometimes they are there for a reason I may just not understand yet.  I find myself discounting small successes in my life, not necessarily putting myself down but at the same time, not completely enjoying the reward from my hard work.  I know most people are guilty of something like this, but today is the day I stop crushing my own dreams and just figure out a way to make them happen.  I hope you follow along for the ride.

On a side (lighter) note, did you know Intermix has an exclusive line where they work with some amazing designers to create pieces just for their stores? Maybe I have been living under a rock but this Brochu Walker X Intermix sweater dress has been in constant rotation in my closet. I have been wearing it non-stop with my New Balances during the day. I was browsing the site and found this tailored white vest and these FRAME exclusive boyfriend jeans that I need want to add to my closet.
