Continued Thankfulness

I don't mind talking about Thanksgiving despite it being two weeks after it. It was one of my all time favorite holiday experiences ever.

On Wednesday before the big day, I traveled to my hometown and visited with tons of family. I have a big family and it was nice to be able to catch up with almost everyone that lives there. And despite my father insisting that my MPH of 35 on the main road through town, required constant commentary and reaching for the handle bar above his head for safety, I'd say the day was a success. "Orlando Style ain't just a magazine..." -Dad, November 2014

A few glimpses of some good times:


On actual Thanksgiving, Hunter and I hosted at our house. We had the perfect blend of family, friends, the yummiest of foods, cozy blankets to nestle with after too much of said foods, and beautiful Florida cold weather the entire day. We had the Macy's Day Parade playing throughout the morning as we prepared for our lovies to arrive and twinkle lights on all day. Magical!







One of my favorite parts of the day, was going with our nephew Connor to the tennis court in our community and letting him run his little legs all around. Here he is resting and contemplating the meaning of it all.


It was wonderful. All of it. I'm very thankful for life in general and appreciate a few extra special parts...

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
