My Movember Man


Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. The essence of Christmas and Advent season is sacred to me, but the actual process of getting to December 25th can be stressful. My family is comprised of foodies. Everyone cooks and cooks really good food, so Thanksgiving has always been our special time.

I’m so extremely thankful I was able to get just enough time off of work to make it home to Chicago for Thanksgiving this year. It’ll be the quickest trip, but a trip none the less. We can’t wait to see our families.

Can I talk about my husband for a moment? If I’m going to say one thing I am thankful for this year, it is Jordan Short. He is kind, strong, funny, and the hardest working man I know. He supports my creative endeavors and holds me during the hard moments. I wouldn’t want to spend my days with anyone else.

I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving! And let’s remember, calories don’t count on holidays.

Six years. Six years just me and you. Thank you for sharing this journey. Here’s to all the rest. xoxo


^ Our bridal party were major troopers that day through the rain and snow! I definitely misjudged the choice of bridesmaid dress for spring!



^ I had fun looking back through these photos. We couldn’t find them saved anywhere on our computer/hard drives but thankfully I found the master disc!
