Hi my loves. Over the past two weeks I've started and stopped 3 very different blog posts. Each one is timely - a super cute recently completed project, my latest fashion obsession and a gorgeous interiors trend I see emerging, but none more timely than a post on gratitude… So this post, for now, trumps the others. I promise not to get preachy on how easy it is to forget the little things that we can take for granted - a smile from a stranger, time carved out to exercise, your kids not having anything major going on, good genuine people surrounding you and the list goes on... But I will say that I am paying extra attention to these little things and allowing the goodness in the world that can easily go unnoticed, to really sink in.
So on this Thanksgiving, as I have for the past five, I would like to express my gratitude for your reading, encouraging and supporting me and FarmHouseUrban all these years. I so appreciate each and every one of you!
On to Thanksgiving and what we're up to! First off, Luke is home! We are hosting our good friends who were one of the first families we met when we moved to California nine years ago.
I know from previous posts on holiday entertaining that you, like me, enjoy festive table settings, so here is a round up of some that inspired my table this year and got me excited for more holiday dinners with friends and family. Salute!
