and this year, i am especially thankful

the holiday season is in full swing!
it feels like there is a gathering, brunch, or
commitment of some sort every weekend from
now through the new year (just in case
you missed it, i recently shared a few ways in 
which i practice self-care during the busy holiday 
season on my blog here).

 don't get me wrong, i enjoy keeping busy. 
during this time, however, i find it particularly 
important to take a step back and reflect on the many 
blessings in my life: my family, friends,
a loving boyfriend, a job that keeps me 
busy, yet challenges me, and most recently, 
the opportunity to return to school (to name a few).
i must admit, clothes, shoes, and
jewelry also hold a special place in my heart
(as does a well-organized closet), but i digress.
i am grateful for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice
creamer (the dairy-free version), rain-free fall days
(the colors on the trees in seattle during this time are
out of this world), and so much more!

of course, blogging also makes me
very happy, and for that, i am thankful.
i have been creating content for diary of this girl
for six years. this little blog has come
a long way, and i am eager to continue writing,
creating new outfits and style tips, and of
course, sharing my everyday happenings with you.
thank you for coming back!
we were fortunate to spend the thanksgiving
holiday with my aunt and uncle, cousins,
grandma, and our adorable pups. i ate far
too much stuffing and chocolate pie, but that's okay.
how did you celebrate? is anyone else
craving more stuffing and green bean casserole?

while i didn't wear this outfit for 
thanksgiving dinner, i think it would have been a 
great option. pair it with a sweater or
cozy jacket! i had every intention of dressing up,
but instead opted for jeans and a loose-fitting blouse
(a girl's gotta have room for dessert).
as the weather continues to cool off, however,
i plan to style this plaid dress with dark
tights or layer a turtleneck underneath;
the options are seemingly endless!

i hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving.
and again, i am thankful for you!
