Right now I am typing away, eating some easy pumpkin muffins I just made, drinking wine, and procrastinating on cleaning the house in preparation for Thanksgiving.
I am excited to have family over for the event for the first time, but I am hoping the expectations are kept low.
Thankfully, I have a loving and understanding family that amazingly loves me for who I am--shortcomings and all.
I originally envisioned a potluck dinner with us all sitting in the driveway around the bonfire (my mind works along the same lines as Steve Martin in Father of the Bride--remember when he imagines the backyard wedding being a quaint BBQ?). I was informed that my idea was insane. So we compromised and the family is helping out by bringing some side dishes...but I have to set up tables and the hoopla.
It will be great, I know it will. And if I burn something? We will laugh and it will become a legendary story. Win-win!
Meanwhile, I have been really busy painting custom logos and illustrations. I have been posting all of it on Instagram--so if you want to see more updates go follow me there! I also signed with an art agent! Now comes the part where I try and develop an art portfolio :)
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of many blessings and sweet moments. I really hope 2014 has been a great year for you too! And how wonderful to think that the best is yet to come.

Drinking wine and watching Hostages while you fold your daughter's clothes is totally normal, right? RIGHT?
