Happy Thanksgiving!

Whereas 2020 seemed to drag on forever, 2021 is just flying by! I am still genuinely surprised that summer is over and we’re already in the throes of the holiday season! Our Thanksgiving traditions were in full swing this year – watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade (which I LOVE is back this year), watching holiday movies or shows, not eating until Thanksgiving dinner, and reflecting on the year and what we’re thankful for!

I’m Tired of Adulting!

Why were we so excited about becoming an adult when we were children? I guess we always want what we don’t have, right? I remember telling my mom – “One day I’m going to become an adult and I won’t have to listen to any of your rules!” I envisioned the excitement and freedom of being an adult… Now here I am, in full adult mode – with a child, house, car, bills, and demanding job. How I do I feel now? I don’t want to be an adult anymore! I don’t want to work anymore! I’m tired! I’m sure […]
