Hello loves! This past weekend, I had the most incredible “friends-giving” with two of local Pittsburgh blogger babes, Maranda of Absolutely Darling and Marah of Marah Frank. They both brought some beautiful decorations, some yummy dishes, and Aullura Boutique sent us some goodies to keep us lookinglike little fall fashionistas. (Go ahead… click those links. Maranda will tell you how we kept this fun day together under $50. Marah will give you a little book of our outfits. And well.. over at Aullura Boutique you can buy them all, because come on.. OBSESSED)
If you know me, you know I had to bring a little cheesiness to the party (and no, I’m not talking cheesy potatoes) and request everyone do a bonding activity. If you’ve been following along with my insta stories, you might have noticed that I’ve been really focusing on the little things that I am grateful for every single day. Writing it all out has really improved my happiness and has me more focused on the good in life. I decided what better way to spread this than over a thanksgivingmeal?!
We all wrote down just a couple things that we were thankful for, placed them all in a dish, and I read them out loud. I’m just imaging at a family dinner how funny it might be to guess who wrote what (for example – I deff wrote the one about my love for wine!) Another fun touch about these was that they were written on tags with wholes in them which with a little decorative string of twine would make perfect additions to any Christmas tree. Let me know in the comments below what you are thankful for… who knows…maybe we will create more ornaments out of them!!
