This year has been full of challenges, but I can’t even put into words how thankful I am.

For the opportunity to move to California, for the new experiences I’ve had and the new people I’ve met, for the wonderful support system I have (all over the country), for the ability to travel, for my health, for my privileges. I’m thankful for all the hard stuff too, as I’ve learned a lot about myself this year, what I like and don’t like, and what I need to work on as a person. I’m going to stop there, as I’ll be writing my year in review post soon (weirdly excited about it because I loved writing last years!). But I wanted to say thank you to all of you who read the blog, follow on social media, comment, share and support. I truly appreciate it. 🙂

I’m hopping on a plane later today (for the 21st time this year??) and heading back to my parent’s house (where we will have 50+ people gathered to celebrate tomorrow). Thanksgiving is my absolute FAVORITE holiday, and I cannot wait to see my family.

For anyone interested in Black Friday shopping – I posted a quick round up of sales yesterday & you can check it out HERE.

Quick note about the outfit – these boots are the Circus by Sam Edelman Reese boot – the leopard I’m wearing is available HERE and HERE but I also found mine at TJ Maxx for under $50 – so check your local TJ Maxx. I’m wearing the BLANKNYC faux leather pants and you for sure need to go up one size – I couldn’t get my normal size over my upper thigh. Last but not least, this is my favorite blush moto jacket from last year (seen HERE, HERE, and HERE) but I’ve linked other pretty blush jackets below.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving (and Let’s Go Blue on Saturday!)

xo, Maddy

    Shut your mouth, those boots ARE amazing! I think I want a pair with a slightly higher heel, but I do love these.
